Love is kind; love is patient and understanding and empathetic.
But love is not passive or people-pleasing; it is not quiet in the face of injustice or harm.
It may be boundless in nature but it also has boundaries and knows how to say NO.
Love is protective and proactive. It is inclusive and celebratory.
It is unapologetic and unashamedly truthful. It is sensitive and emotional. But it is never weak.
It is bright like fire and deep like the ocean.
Love is a mother; love is a healer, and a nurturer.
Love is also a warrior, my dear. Remember that.
