The story of human intimacy is one of constantly allowing ourselves to see those we love most deeply in a new, more fractured light. Look hard. Risk that.
~ Cheryl Strayed
I looked for a quote using the search term ‘fractured light’, when I came across the one I have used above. It hit home with me, as I read it over and over again, letting it seep deep into my heart, my soul; saving it in a treasured place to take out from time to time, to remind me of the beautiful intimacy I have in my life, the way I see my husband, the one man I love more deeply that I ever loved any other man before, and probably will love any other man ever again.
Life is forever changing, and as it keeps on changing. People look at us, and they think they know what our life is like, but mostly they don’t. I have come to a point where there are only a handful of people I talk to about the difficulties we face, because I have noticed that people are too busy to really listen. It’s okay, because I know I don’t always have time to listen to others too, even though I try. I’m in no way perfect, and never will claim that I am. Changes in our life started three years and three months ago, and the changes are still happening. We don’t know where it will end, but the one thing we know is that we will face it together, wherever this road will take us. As our life changes, the new, more fractured light seems to change too.
Life is good, even though it’s hard, because we are together.
