“In order to hear Love’s words, you must allow Love to approach.
However, when it does draw near, we fear what it might say to us, because Love is free and is not ruled by our will or by what we do.
All lovers know this, but refuse to accept it. They think they can seduce Love through submission, power, beauty, wealth, tears and smiles.
True Love, however, is the love that seduces and will never allow itself to be seduced.
Love transforms, love heals.
But sometimes it lays deadly traps and ends up destroying the person who decided to surrender himself completely.
How can the force that moves the world and keeps the stars in their places be, at once, so creative and so devastating?
We are used to thinking that what we give is the same as what we receive, but people who love, expecting to be loved in return, are wasting their time.
Love is an act of faith, not an exchange.
Contradictions are what make love grow.
Conflicts are what allow love to remain by our side.”
– Paulo Coelho, MANUSCRIPT FOUND IN ACCRA
P.S. if I could go back in time, and undo the damage that’s been done… I would gladly erase the past few days of my life. I just want everything to be like it was. It wasn’t perfect. But it was so much better than this!
