Saying “Yes!” To Who You Could Become

I saw that I would love him,

and that loving him would mean

saying yes to the self I would become

by loving him,

and no to the other selves

I would never become by not loving him.


I don’t know who made this observation – but, I’m deeply moved by the truth expressed.

I think the truth of this quote speaks to why making a vow to another person is such a profound act.

In a real way, you’re vowing to become the person you could only become through the loving of this particular partner – and no other.


Now that’s deep.

And courageous.

And generous.
