The letter L …

I would say this is as important as food, clothes and shelter.  I have been lucky in my life to have been able to love and be loved both.  I admit that I often lead with my heart and that is not always the wisest thing to do.  However, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to see those I care about happy and that is what it usually comes down to.  I love with a vengeance and find it very hard, if not impossible, to shut that off once it is there.  A couple of my past loves are still a very big part of my life.  I love them and want to see them happy.

I am not sure it is as strong on the flipside though and that is a place where I struggle with my depression.  I don’t always feel that love is returned as easily as given.  I think it is just my insecurities, but I just don’t feel it most of the time; it often just feels like going through the motions day to day.  Here again though that is a product of my depression.  But there are plenty of people and things for me to love and I do so with all my heart.  My L gratitude is love.
