You don't believe in doing things the easy way. You don't believe in following the beaten path, or staying safe.
Life happens in the boundaries. This all gains meaning when we push outside of ourselves and open up to the possibility of the unexpected. This includes the painful, but it also includes the wonderful things about being alive and free.
Loving someone does not mean servitude or settling. You need to be open to be open to love. Love should never make you settle. It should make your heart soar.
You are a pioneer. You were born to explore.
