“If I ever loved a woman, the more I loved her, the more I wanted to hurt her. Frida was only the most obvious victim of this disgusting trait.” ~ Diego Rivera
I know you love her.
If you didn’t, you wouldn’t be with her. That’s why you are still with her, but since you’re only a human being with variable emotions, you might be inclined to love her in all the wrong ways.
You might not realize until this moment…
A healthy, happy relationship can transform into a destructive one if you treat her less than how she deserves to be treated.
Furthermore, I hope you try to love her right. I hope you cast every ray of awareness upon your love for her. I hope you know that awareness is what keeps a relationship strong.
Remember the first day you saw her?
I want you to remember how she looked when you first laid eyes on her. She was everything you longed for. Be it her beauty, her wild nature, her sense of humor or her independence, there’s something about her you haven’t found in anyone else.
And what floored you the most was her completeness.
Her perfection in her own imperfection…
If you love her, keep her this way. Keep her beautiful, keep her wild, keep her complete.
She wants to fly, to do what she likes, to be wise… Let her be!
While she’s the master of her own fate, I wish you understood that you play a major role in her life. How you treat her determines how she views herself—you can make her shine or make her feel lost. She’s a statue in your hands and she only hopes to be held with vigilance.
If you love her, don’t destroy her.
Know that she was destroyed before and another destruction isn’t what she’s aiming for. If she’s with you, know that she has stepped over her fear and insecurities to be with you. She has stepped over her past and decided to give love another chance. She has entrusted you with the health of this relationship—and with her heart.
She wants you to support her, but never restrict her; that’s not what she’s wishing for. Don’t destroy her childhood dreams, don’t play her as a game, let her be her cause she will not leave..
Don’t let her down.
You destroy her the moment you think you know her. She’s not a book you will eventually finish. She’s something yet to be discovered—so live every day as if you’re meeting her for the first time.
Be present. Nothing destroys her more than your emotional absence. You can sit with her all day long and not really be there, yet you can be so far away and be completely present.
Stimulate her thoughts, her emotions, her being. Dive into her soul like you’d dive into an ocean.
