Dr. Maya Angelou once said “Love is that condition in the healing spirit so profound that it allows us to forgive”. If I had to give my younger self advice I’d tell me, to forgive. The mistrust I found myself carrying from one relationship to the next, made it hard for me to identify what I really needed. I’d tell me to communicate more and pay attention to the red flags, even the small ones. Like my grandma once said “Everything that’s good to you ain’t good for you”. The sweet kisses only go but so far without substance and intent.
