loving someone isn’t about saving them. it’s not about changing their circumstances. it’s not about changing who they are or how they feel. loving someone means meeting them where they are. it’s about creating a space in which they feel safe. seen. validated. it’s about helping them realise they are enough, as they are, where they are. to love is to accept. love isn’t about change. it’s about safety. it’s about presence. it’s about empathy and openness. love is creating a space for them to just be. in whatever colour or shade of grey they choose to be for however long they choose to be it.
