“Love is worth the risk of loss. Both bitterness and true happiness are choices that we make, not conditions that fall upon us from the hands of faith. Peace is to be found in the acceptance of things we are unable to change. Friends and family are the blood of life, and the purpose of existence is caring, commitment.”
The first line rings true, and we have heard it often enough, with any great love there is a great risk, and it’s the possibility of the great love that makes the great risk palatable.
