Written for my Joshua.
To love someone, to really love someone is to give them part of your heart.
But, careful now.
With that gift, you feel their pain. Really feel it. Physically, it hurts. Mentally, it’s devastating And even if you want to, you can’t fix it for them.
But, if you don’t give your heart. If you don’t expose yourself enough to make your heart available to take, you will miss the reward. With the gift causing pain when they feel pain…you also get to feel joy when they feel joy.
The burden of the pain is necessary to truly experience the joy.
