Without love!

Love is not finding someone to live with, it’s finding the one you don’t want to live without!

I tend to learn stepwise. Sudden insights make me understand. This quote on love made me realize that I have been chasing love the wrong way. 

I am divorced since long, and am ashamed of not succeeding in the marriage. In addition, since my divorce I have not been able to keep a lasting love relation. This adds to my guilt. But, before I didn’t have the understanding I got from the quote above.

Some years ago I actually stumbled upon the kind of love that is hard to live without. I haven’t realized this before. Unfortunately, she was divorcing herself and I became the springboard out of her marriage. Her feelings towards me perhaps were mixed with the feelings of life reorientation. 

Anyway, I have tried to move on, my habit faithfully, on my stepped path, but it has not worked. Now I know why, and it really feels good. I am not anymore chasing someone to live with. I might find the one I can’t live without, or I won’t. The important thing is that I finally understand what true love is all about.

My photo blog seems to evolve into something else! For this post I have selected previously published images that I enjoy. I have also posted this from my smartphone!

Trust and confidence

Trust and confidence are essential in close relations with love. Consider the many oddities we humans are devoted to in order to avoid closeness. Do you know the expression “alone is strong”? What a nonsense! Alone is afraid of intimacy.

The other day I had the confidence to watch the marina. In the boat club we share the responsibility to watch each other’s boats. Together we become safer. We trust in each other. Compare this to a single boat in a small private dock. Independent, yes but insecure.
