Unconditional Love, Possible?
At first glance anything can appear beautiful, further inspection reveals its flaws.
Shallow tendencies despise and reject this,
deeper understanding illuminates the true perfection in it.
So why do I feel like my flaws are judged so harshly?
I am intense.
I do feel deeply.
I care immensely.
Too much of a good thing can be overwhelming and send people running.
I long for real acceptance.
I yearn to hear that love can be unconditional.
Am I so hard to care for with all my passion and concern?
I have been told that these aspects make me unique and special,
but they seem more like curses when I am consistently met with resistance.
Has everyone forgotten what it means to emote?
Are we all so frightened by our feelings that when confronted with intense emotions our first response is to bail?
I recognize my flaws and want nothing more than to eradicate them but do they really make me so impossible to love?
“You move too fast.”
“You feel too deeply.”
“You think too much.”
When did theses qualities become so negative?
It used to be that you had to lie, cheat, disrespect, not think before speaking, be too closed off.
Now openness and honesty are the exceptions, the abnormal.
What has happened to us?
Why is love so difficult for some?
Now the question becomes:
Stay true to myself or play the game in order to succeed?
But is that true success?
Is there someone who will accept me for who I am?
Or am I doomed to be caged by conventionalism forever?
