"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion. For most men, it appears to me, are in a strange uncertainty about it, whether it is of the devil or of God, and have somewhat hastily concluded that it is the chief end of man here to “glorify God and enjoy him forever."
Henry David Thoreau

Often times, I wish I had the answer to why such distinctly wonderful individuals walk into my life, stay in my life, or leave my life. Please do stop me if I say “my life” again.
Other times, I care not to have such an explanation because I am at peace with it all. It is well because I won’t stop loving.
It’s not easy.It can perhaps drive some to madness which then further leads me to presume why?
“People are just people. They shouldn’t make you nervous”- Land the artist and the song and you’ve moved up, dear friend.
Functional relationships(and this goes for romantic, platonic, friendships, family, etc) take an incredible amount of work and effort.There are so many aspects and divisions of people that you should know if you’re genuinely investing care there. It’s important to be conscious of the love language they receive, the love language they deliver and have a good sense of communication about your receptive love language and the one you deliver.
This is becoming too long. Call me.
Green eyes absolutely take my breath away. They have such a rare beauty about them and perhaps it’s because they remind me of the wondrous outdoors.
