Love Does the Trick

I think I get it now. I get what turns rational, practical, mild humans into irrational, impractical, wild people. It just takes another person breaking into your world and making you realize that you’ve never been truly rational or practical, that you’ve only ever been striving. It takes someone with the right balance of conviction and grace to begin wrecking all of the walls you’ve built around your heart in attempt to convince yourself and others that you aren’t a mess.

It’s people who can, with soft tenacity, enter your life and love well, in a way that unequivocally exposes you to your own quivering, messy, beautiful self. That’s what transforms a person. It’s relationships. It’s other people. It’s love.
