Never stop learning about your partner. Never lose that wonder that made you want to get to know them initially because we are constantly growing as individuals.

My thoughts, my blog.

Thanks for tagging me! <3

I just want to pull this out really quick:

Being in love is the act of leaving yourself vulnerable to pain but trusting your lover to not do so. The act of being vulnerable with anyone is one that takes a lot of courage and heart.

ALL. OF. THIS.

It takes an incredible amount of courage to both be open enough to be in love with someone and to be honest about it. You still have a small bit of security if that’s how you feel but your partner(s) don’t know it. Whereas once it’s out, it leaves you very vulnerable; you don’t know what they’re going to do with that information: how they’ll react, how they’ll treat you, how it might change the relationship (for better or for worse).

Also important is how it’s virtually impossible to be vulnerable with someone without a fair amount of honesty, and I think people increasingly shy away from that. We play games, we hold parts of ourselves back from each other—all it takes is opening yourself up one time with the wrong person and you balk at doing it again. Vulnerability requires honesty and trust, and it sucks when you realize that you can’t invest that in some people (even as they seem to require it of you).

So often we place a heavy emphasis on romantic relationships but I think this is an idea worth extending to platonic relationships as well. How many times have you REALLY needed to confide in someone, but you didn’t because you felt like whoever you could tell would ridicule and judge you for it? How many parts of you are there that you can’t share with the people you claim to be closest to?

One of the best compliments I’ve ever received was from a family member who said I was the only person she could say ANYTHING to without judgment. But I have really only received that level of consideration from two people, and the best part was that they didn’t think there was any other way to be. It was just in their nature to be open and considerate.

I guess I should be grateful to have had it at all—memories of what that felt like will keep me from settling for anything less.

My lovely beauties, katchkenda and inquisitivebibliophile have said it all so wonderfully. I have nothing else to add. I simply admire their thoughts and thought you all should see them as well. Thank you ladies.

This gives me so much hope. I almost started crying.

I am literally tearing up because this is beautiful and so very accurate. It is so true and is sad. It is really sad to see the men who are supposed to protect us do us wrong that way. Who think like that. It is something all black women need to see.there are black MEN out there who still love, support, protect, and uplift us. Yes

"They say you don’t get over someone until you find someone or something better. As humans, we don’t deal well with emptiness. Any empty space must be filled. Immediately. The pain of emptiness is too strong. It compels the victim to fill that place. A single moment with that empty spot causes excruciating pain. That’s why we run from distraction to distraction—and from attachment to attachment."
