"Love is a lot of things. Love is kindness and compassion and grace, not only toward your partner but toward yourself. Love is giving someone space to be vulnerable but to be vulnerable in turn. I can explore parts of myself that I’ve hidden away out of fear, loneliness or shame. Love means pushing through that fear together, to create something new – something I couldn’t create on my own. I’m not a different person when I’m in love. I’m more open and honest about who I really am. That’s the power of love.” - Becca Dierschow. This is Becca and Elliott. They give me hope.
