Being truthful to myself means that I must recognize the ache that comes from within that calls me to love. Learning to love is the realization that at times we have to learn to trust the one’s we love. To let them make their own mistakes and decide what is right and what is wrong. Learning to love sometimes asks us to let go, to surrender, to step aside and to be patient.
