What did you think love felt like as a child?
Perhaps, it was a warm feeling that bubbles up from your insides. Your lips are forced upwards into a smile and those bubbles stay in the depths of your mind.
That was what I always believed love to be.
I’ve never experienced that.
In fact, now that I am an adult, I have to say that I am not quite sure if I do believe in the love I once did.
It isn’t that I’ve had a terrible experience or that my parents are divorced. No, I came from a loving family.
I have had romantic experiences in the past, but I’ve always looked at them as if they were something that would eventually break or that I would eventually learn to love them.
It isn’t something that comes easy to me.
It may be that I’m hard to love, but I sincerely doubt that. I’m just waiting.
