How do I explain love? How did I identify love? How did I embrace love? It was familiar, comforting, relaxed, happy, natural. That’s how my mother always said she could tell if the love was true…was if you were yourself with your love. You didn’t change, but remained true to your character and I did. I felt loved like I was in familiar ground. I embraced it with no reservations. I think being young helped with that, in addition to it being my personality to trust my instinct but at 15, you don’t yet, or at least I didn’t have any inhabitions. That makes loves easier to accept so freely and in my opinion beautifully open, as only a teenager can love like.
