I don’t feel like the most experienced person to talk about love, but who really is? We all see love differently through our own personal lens depending on what we’ve experienced, what we’ve witnessed, or what we want (or what we think we want).

I could go on and on because you’ve helped me grow up and you continue helping me now, to this day. But that would be a never ending blog post so I’ll stick with just this for now.
