Loving is a choice and never has it been "perfect". When two people connect in a profound way, there are bound to be secret spaces left untouched and gaps that an embrace cannot map. The passion and arguments of youth may be symptoms of the struggle to make it perfect. When I was younger I wanted to be completely absorbed by the other, as I thought it would make me whole, and I worked hard to imagine it so. As I get older I realize the intricacy of each person's journey and I see that, at best, we are here to honor the other person, bring to them what we can, and have grace in accepting what we can't.
