Loving profoundly, loving deeply, loving intensely
“Of all forms of caution, caution in love is perhaps the most fatal to true happiness”
- Bertrand Russell
I have always fallen in love in what some people find may be the stupidest way – completely and utterly recklessly. I have given my heart and my soul to the people I love (whether it is my friends, my family or my partners) fully and entirely. I am intense, and I am sometimes a lot to take. Reflecting on what my life has been over the past few years with one of my absolute best friends from Mexico (CHBV), who was visiting here this past weekend, made me realize that I have always thrown caution to the wind when I have started new friendships and romantic relationships.
Do I plan to continue this way? Absolutely, because I agree with Russell – being cautious about how I love people has never made me happy. I’ve lost friends, I have lost the love of my life (at the time), but you know what? I wouldn’t change my life a single bit. Because, in loving profoundly, I am lucky that I am loved back just as intensely.
