Did this love challenge teach you anything? If so/not...what/why?
Of course it did. I learned a lot. About myself...about the fellow challengers.
I learned a lot about the love I THOUGHT I had and the love I didn't realize I had. I learned how perception is a MUG and how often while IN it...we don't always see it.
I've learned that just when you think you've gotten over things, memories of pain can pull you back as if things happened in that second. I also learned that the things I thought I'd never get over have washed away with time, understanding and self-love.
I've learned that my girls are SO fuckin' cool. I have a list of chicks who were SO supportive during this challenge. Throwing up my blog's URL every chance they got...speaking of me in a beautiful light and MEANING it. We banded together and helped each other through each question. Some of us had a harder journey than the others, but we ALL were in each other's comment sections applauding, cheering, giving e-hugs and love to support through the epiphanies, the inspirations, the beautiful moments, the relived struggles and the moments that some wanted to throw in the towel.
All I have learned is love and more love. Tolerance. Clarity. Retrospection. Forgiveness. Understanding. Reconciliation. Pleasure. Happiness. Peace...peace and love.
Again, thanks to all those who participated, read and commented.
I love you...
I really do...
