when we treat love as something sacred and rare, we miss opportunities to critically engage with it or even explore different types of love. when we treat love as sacred and something to be found, we are implying that the relationship and construction of love is perfect from its inception. that prevents open dialogue and transfer of ideas and definitions of what relationships are and what is desired from them

when we treat love as something to be built, we allow for the opportunity to love anyone we meet and the threat of finding The One fades. when we treat love as something to be built, we allow for nuance in any and all our relationships and for those relationships to hold more weight on our lives. when we treat love as something to be built, it becomes a communal act, rather than something we do alone


we should treat love as something to be built rather than found

Plants take time to spread their roots before you see even their first leaves. Just because you cannot see progress does not mean you are not making any.

As I get older I鈥檓 starting to let go of the guilty urge to build permanent habits. Like, a while ago I decided I would start jumping rope every day. I did it for like three weeks and felt good about it. Then I got bored, because of course I did, because I鈥檓 a human person. So now I do a bit of kickboxing because that鈥檚 what I like now. The other week I cut all sugar from my diet, just for a week, to challenge myself. Now I鈥檓 back to eating sweets but I don鈥檛 crave them as much.

Growth is about stretching, trying new things, and setting small, realistic goals for yourself, not picking a聽鈥済ood habit鈥 you鈥檝e decided you will be doing always and forever from now on. That鈥檚 not discipline. That鈥檚 pointless self-torture and unhealthy resistance to change.

What鈥檚 good for you today will not necessarily be what鈥檚 good for you tomorrow.

acceptance doesn鈥檛 mean forgiveness.

acceptance doesn鈥檛 mean what happened was ok.

it just means it happened.

it just means it happened.

please make sure that wherever you鈥檙e at in life, you don鈥檛 treat it like a transitory period. don鈥檛 waste your college years wishing to already be graduated & have a job. don鈥檛 waste your single years wishing for someone to be in love with. if/when those things come, they will come in due time and they will be good. but there is nothing like looking back and feeling empty because you wasted literal years ignoring what you had because you were hoping for something better. while it鈥檚 important to better yourself and reach for your goals, don鈥檛 neglect the present because that鈥檚 where you are now and it鈥檚 your now that determines your future.聽

The truth is - love exists in so much more than just romantic partner. Love is everything around you. And I hope you learn now to open your eyes to that. I hope you find love in every spect of your life. I hope you find it tucked into early morning sunrises, and the smell of your favourite places. I hope you find it strung between the laughter you share with your friends, I hope it bounces off of you when you hug the people you care for, I hope it swells within your ribcage whenever you hear your favorite song, or discover something that moves you. I hope you fall in love with growth, and change, and the messiness and the beauty of fucking up, and making mistakes, and becoming exactly who you want to be. I hope you find love in places that were once void of it, in places within yourself that you could have been softer to, kinder to, in the past. Because if there is one thing I have learned, it is that love is so much more than boy, or a girl, who holds your heart. Love is everything around you. It is everything.

[ID: A screenshot of a twitter post by ninamonday. It contains an image and the text 鈥淵ou know what, person on facebook, I did need to hear this鈥

The image is a screenshot of a facebook post by Danielle Beaulieu. It reads 鈥淚 don鈥檛 know who needs to hear this but your choice to give up the last 7 months of your regular life being careful and socially distancing could very well be the reason someone else is still alive today and it will always have been worth it. Please don鈥檛 give up caring just because everyone else is, cases are rising again.鈥 End ID]
