someone once told me that love is an act of will. i was certain i’d heard wrong. i thought that love was a river, endless and deep. i thought it merely happened, washing over you like water. it was nothing to search for, nothing to force. i didn’t understand that even when we can’t control our fate, we alone have the last say in matters of the heart. we can give it freely, even in the worst of times, even when it isn’t returned. the frightned walk away when love is difficult. i know that now. you have to be willing to end up with nothing. only then will your heart be whole
