Restraint

While that word could bring up images of erotic fun, unfortunately that’s not what I’m writing about tonight. I’m referring to the restraint I’m using to not alienate a friend who I love.


Popular culture tells us to tell the people we live in our lives that we indeed love them. I wish I could. I’m restrained because that expression isn’t exactly welcome. Terms like friend/brother/sister have been used. There is a difference in opinion as to what love is and what it’s supposed to feel like. Not everyone comes from the same place, and I do understand that. I have hope that a revelation of the infinite reach of love and the human capacity to give and receive it in a variety of ways will come.

Adding love for one does not mean less love for another. It’s not pie.
