This is the final instalment of my 3 DAY, 3 QUOTE CHALLENGE, set by my friend Tarnished Soul https://tarnishedsoul.wordpress.com/
It wouldn’t be complete without LOVE & FRIENDSHIP. If you have been reading my blog, you already know of my struggles with my failed marriage. Actually, you just have to read the blog name to realise there’s something wrong but I digress.
Note that I use the word ‘failed’, not failing. I don’t see a way back from the lack of ACCEPTANCE, the annoyance at my WRITING and, even though there is still LOVE, the clear lack of FRIENDSHIP. Writing this sentence it’s clear to me that the things that define me, my choices for the quote themes, are the problem; they are a ‘problem’ I refuse to fix.
Others who have undertaken this challenge were right: it takes you on a journey so, thank you, Tar, for nominating me. I hope you are enjoying being home and having a break. ❤️
Enough blabbering and on to the quotes:
This is about the biggest love of all. The love that has no requirements. I have a very hard time opening up to people I know so how can I really call them friends if they don’t KNOW ME.
I once had a friend who knew me better than I knew myself. He broke through all my walls and I didn’t even see it happen. With one single look he knew exactly what I was feeling. Sadly, I lost him to a birth defect in his heart that went undetected until it was too late. I don’t think I ever cried so much in my life.
I would love to have a friend like that again, to drop my mask. I am taking baby steps towards it and I hope I will get there sooner rather than later.
Yes, I feel it and it’s related to the first one. If my barely husband can’t accept who I really am and wants the Stepford Wives version of me, then he is not my friend. And without friendship… I’m going around in circles!!!
My last quote is not exactly a quote. It’s not eloquent and it’s not poetically written but it’s the most powerful message of all. Love has no rules: who you fall in love with, why, how… it’s all a mystery!
And then society tries to put so many barriers: you can’t love someone of the same gender! You can’t love someone who follows a different religion! Interracial relationships are wrong!
I say FUCK OFF! With all the letters and all my mighty. SHUT THE FUCK UP!
Now that I let it all out, I can happily finish my challenge with the last nominations. Again I remind you it’s OK if you don’t want to do it, but I say the results are quite astonishing for the ones who actually do!
