What is LOve?

Beautiful Innocence

I wake up in good moods but as the day goes by my happiness fades

and all this happened since the day...

You told me you loved me.

And I believed you.

With any doubt, unconditional.

Nothing stood in my way from loving you.

I held you down like any good woman

raised with the right morals.

Knowing life hit you hard early in life,

knowing you weren't perfect,

weren't rich,

had an extra pound here and there.

Yet still I love you regardless and asked only for your

love and honesty,trust and time.

And even when you came up short

I letit slide.

I dealt with the crazy ex-girlfriends,

your childs mother...

And here i sit.

Everyday looking into air.

Right here in this chair, everyday.

Wondering how the hell I got into this mess.

You told me you had an STD.

My world stopped.

It did.

I truly trusted you.

I loved making you happy.

Should I question my love or yours?

I died in your arms when you infected me,

you should've told me!

You should've said something a long time ago!!

You hurt me.

But i still love you.

Like I told you that one night...

Love never dies.

You took the biggest piece of my heart.

When time heals, I'll see you again.

Because I forgive you.

Beautiful, read the last 7 lines of your post to yourself.

You hurt me.

But I still love you.

Like I told you that one night...

Love never dies.

You took the biggest piece of my heart.

When time heals, I'll see you again,

Because I forgive you.

There are two kinds of forgiveness. One allows us to say we forgive, and yet the pain of whatever was inflicted upon us remains, festers, and prevents us from truly healing. It offers no real comfort, nor closure, and yet we, as civil human beings, offer this forgiveness freely to those who harm us, either intentionally or inadvertently. It's expected of us... demanded of us by society, but it's a shallow offering, at best.

True forgiveness means letting go. It means putting completely behind us whatever caused our grief, and moving on, unencumbered by anger or pain. Only when/if you can do that, will you be free to move on.

And yes, sadly, love does die. Sometimes we kill it ourselves with anger and hurt. Sometimes it just fades away. Sometimes we keep it alive longer than we should. Then again, sometimes it does live and thrive forever, if we're willing to nurture it, and nourish it, and give it room to grow. It's like a living thing to be cared for and tended. Forgiveness is like sunlight and water, and it takes generous portions to make love thrive. Anger and blame will shriver love's roots and cause it to wither and die.

Sometimes, when the obstacles are too great, the only thing we can do is to open our hand and let love go. But if you truly believe it's worth holding on to, then it has to start with acceptance that no one is perfect, not even the one you love, and forgiveness for those imperfections and shortcomings.

It takes a strong person to turn your back on hurts done to you, and yet embrace the one who hurt you. It takes commitment, and a promise to yourself that once you've let it go, you'll never look back. But if you can do that, no matter whether, in the end, this love survives or not, you'll be free.

WoW that was beautiful. And made me feel really bad beacause i believe i have genital herpes and am waiting for the phone call whether positive or negative. I am not sure whether i got it out of nowhere or if it was my boyfriend who gave it to me. But if it was me who gave it to him i will be so trully devastated..omg..i dont want to be the one to ruin someones life. I dont want someone telling me they forgive me for what ive dont to them like your poem...Its good that you can forgive the person and move on with your life thanks for posting it. Makes me think...

      I like rice flour for coating. What about arrow root. I used it in recipe and it was fine. I would stay away from nut flour until you have your protocol in order.

      No, but in the right amount s it may have promise? Quercitin should only come from food Let us know what you think. If it is not high dose I would walk. I use BHT check Steve Fowkes Free book Two grams acerola cherry vit C 2g glutamine Whole vitamin like Gold liquid... I take 25% I eat somewhat clean 25mg DHEA micronized Lemon water for alkalinity sometimes apple Cider vinegar St. John's wort Idol iodine I was very vitamin deficienct Monolaurin, and black seed oil if I am breaking out Which will only happen if I am not taking my thyroid or BHT. Zinc applied to the groin area zinc sulfate

      He was helping, you just didn't see it. The number one thing you can do right now to overcome stress and depression is.... smile!

      You are only a few weeks in, the virus is causing the outbreaks regardless of whether you eat half a piece of toast, ten pieces of toast, or two bananas! You've got to wait until your immune system is in full implementation, about a year. Then it's about not stressing your immune system. 'Stress' in its holistic sense is the number one cause of outbreaks and is that way for the absolute majority of people with herpes. A lot of people might say that peanut butter is a trigger, or alcohol... however it is not these substances that are the issue in and of themselves but the WHY you had so much peanut butter or alcohol!
