I think that deep down I’ve always believed this to be true, though, I’ve never been able to put it so succinctly. I always felt a bit odd or maybe just heartless because I felt like I could never “love” someone enough that I’d fall to pieces if they left. To me that wasn’t love, it was dependency. To me entering a relationship as half of a person, hoping/expecting the other person to fill in the gaps and make up the difference is a recipe for disaster not to mention a bit selfish. In love, two halves don’t make a whole. It’s really more like multiplication with each trying to take half from the other and all you end up with is a quarter. I do believe love can heal and make you whole but it’s best if you start by loving yourself.      (Quote curtesy of Psychology Today.)

Sometimes I like to just guesstimate how much water I need and then pour it into a measuring cup to see how close I was. #mutantpower
