“Love liberates. It doesn’t just hold—that's ego. Love liberates. It doesn't bind. Love says, ‘I love you. I love you if you’re in China. I love you if you’re across town. I love you if you’re in Harlem. I love you. I would like to be near you. I’d like to have your arms around me. I’d like to hear your voice in my ear. But that’s not possible now, so I love you. Go.’”
-Dr. Maya Angelou
"Let go" was on the top of my list of things to remember this year. Even at the top of the list, it's easy easy easy to forget.
I don't think love means anything without containing the freedom to grow. All love - not just romantic love - is about freedom in safety and safety in freedom. If it isn't, well, it probably isn't love.
Let go. All the way. No cheatin'.
