You rush into relationships with the unshakeable eagerness of a toddler trying their first solid food. So you give and you take and you want and you demand so much from those first few relationships. You want the love story you have been waiting for. You want the partner you truly deserve. You have a laundry list of everything you cannot wait to do, see, experience and become through loving someone else.

You have so much to give! You have so much to receive! If your expectations fail to be met, you just pretend and invent. Even the falling apart of the relationship possesses a certain poetic tragedy. The good things cannot last forever and you know that. And so, you try again. You fall in love again. You hope again. You feel again. You have faith again, that this one is going to be it for real.

And you repeat this process as many times as it takes. Until somewhere along the line, something goes wrong. Something inside of you breaks in the place where it has always only bent and in a swift, unexpected instant, your heart falls cleanly apart. Maybe none of it was ever built to last. You no longer feel guarded, apprehensive or excited about the prospect of meeting someone new. You just feel indifferent. You see the ending from the starting line and the race no longer seems to be worth running. And the truth is, this happens to us all.

Not a single one of us gets out of life with our hearts fully intact — we all have scrapes and jagged edges where the smooth parts used to be. Most of us have lost a love we thought would last forever. Most of us have felt disillusioned and spent. One that takes things are they are — not as you imagine them to be — and works with that reality. That allows it the space to grow into something concrete. In a way, we are all virgins of real love unless and until we first become jaded. Before this point, we were living in a fairytale of how we wanted love to be.

And afterwards, we are offered the opportunity to accept love as it really exists: In all its flawed, imperfect glory. Because that kind of love is based on truth. You may unsubscribe at any time.
