To be loved…truly

Three things that make us whole…

To be seen… Beyond the facade. To have the essence of who we are, known to those we trust and hold dear.

To be heard… Not only when we cry out, but also when we speak gently of the troubles in our heart.

To be loved… For more than how we make others feel, but to be loved for what we need in return, without having to claim it.

In that order, because a voice without an identity is not a voice. It’s only a whisper in the wind.

A face without a voice is only window dressing, or a trophy. And not a complete being.

And love… Love without a reciprocal embrace…an embrace of what we hold within, as well as what we willingly give, is an empty love that taints towards bitterness, rather than beauty.

Love beyond lust or infatuation is rare. True love is never abandoned.

I see you. I hear you. I love you. Three of the most valuable gifts you could ever give. But, you cannot give what you don’t have. For this reason, you must first see, hear, and love who you are, before you will be able to share it with another.
