The problem with “love” today.

Are you with someone (dating someone or looking for someone) that makes you feel happy or someone that challenges you to be a better person, while loving you for who you are?   One of the most meaningful relationships I had was definitely not the easiest.

It doesn’t necessarily change how you feel, but it does remove the sting and allow your heart to get healthy...
