You know that saying, “If you love someone, let them go?” Well for years I thought that meant physically, like if they wanted to move to a different country, or even mentally having to move on from someone. But yesterday, I realized that phrase most nearly means, “if you love someone, you let go of who you think they should be.” You don’t [try to] control who they are or get disappointed when they don’t meet the expectations that you’ve set for them. You kinda just let them be and love them no matter what they do. Which is why love is so hard—because it’s about lack of control. It’s you letting someone in and allowing them free range over your heart, where they can either love you back or hurt you. It’s a gamble, but I think finding that type of love is one of our greatest privileges as humans.
