It is often easier to hate one another than to love. It is easier to judge you. It is easier to criticize you. It is easier to deny you. It is easier to ignore you. It is easier to label you. To stereotype you. To demonize you. To see you as less than you are. It is easier to lie to you. To deceive you. To manipulate you. To hurt you.

Know it is not you. It was never about you. It was as always has been me. It is my pain I projected onto you. It was my self-judgment, self-denial, self-deception and self-hate. Know it was never my heart but my mind trying to protect it.  Protect itself from the parts of me I have had to face. To learn to love and accept.

In my heart there is only love. I love you unconditionally. I love the parts of you that sometimes hurt. I love the parts of you that are so different from me. The parts you may not love about yourself. I do this because I see you. I see past the superficial aspects others may consider flaws, I love them too. I see into the depths of you. I see what you truly are. I see beauty. I see strength. I see compassion. I see forgiveness. I see courage. I see love.

Love is not always easy, but nothing worth having is. In the end, what else is there?

I love you, more than you may ever know
