Love That Will Be Ready

“Someone can be madly in love with you and still not be ready. They can love you in a way you have never been loved and still not join you on the bridge. And whatever their reasons you must leave. Because you never ever have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge. You never ever have to convince someone to do the work to be ready. There is more extraordinary love, more love that you have never seen, out here in this wide and wild universe. And there is the love that will be ready.”
― Nayyirah Waheed

  3. This is exactly what I needed today!

  4. yes, i also needed to hear it …

    thanks for all the wonderful things you post.

  5. Also, if you are not ready, then do not let yourself be coaxed out onto that bridge!

  6. Oh boy, the truth in these quotes feels like a knife through my heart. :/

  7. I was such a “someone”, loving fervently and yet being unable to keep going.
