Some years ago I was in a relationship. I was very much in love. The gentleman’s life was cut short by an act of nature. On his birthday I always take a moment to spend a bit of his birthday with him to let him know I love and I miss him. I still hold a place for him in my heart, and I always will.
Many years have past since the day of his transition, but he is still very much a part of who I am. At the time I couldn’t imagine how I could go on without him. I couldn’t imagine that I would. Over time my wounded heart has healed. I have continued living, and I have loved again.
I believe if you have ever really loved someone then you don’t stop loving them; period. Because everyone that has been in your life whether you consider it a good or maybe not so good relationship has had a part in who you have become. You not only learned what you want and what you don’t want , But you learn how to love deeper .
I know that some people wonder do I expect other men to measure up to him? The answer is No, not even for one minute because I know that we are all individuals. You can never love two people the same way. Each relationship brings it’s own Joys, challenges, and lessons.
What I did learn from being in that relationship was what love feels like, and that I would never settle for a relationship that didn’t make me feel good, bring me joy, make me laugh, or feel appreciated. And, I would not be with someone that I could not make feel the same.
What have you learned from your past loves???
Love and blessings in divine order,
