Sometimes I'm just not very strong.

something you said in an earlier post struck a cord with me. i don't think that growing up means a loss of innocence.
I think a loss of innocence causes one to grow up faster in ways that give you a hardened and calloused appearance. But growing up essentially is being able to hold on to innocence with the wisdom that when looking at things-good and bad- you would choose to love with a childlike trust even though it isn't always safe. Growing up doesn't mean experiences, it means being able to observe and delve into the meanings of things and decide for yourself what kinds of innocence are worth holding on to.

I don't know if that made any sense. haha.

That makes perfect sense, thanks for that...sometimes I need to be reminded that I don't have to be defined by the things I have lost. Loving with a childlike there's something very few people in your life will ever encourage.

Hey, I haven't forgotten about us having dinner...when is best for you this week? Maybe you can just message me and let me know. :)
