Love. A special force. That conquers all. Yields to none. Foundation of life.

And yet, what pain it can cause in relationships. How difficult it at times can be. What torment it can inflict upon our lives – shattering – never to be the same again…. But yet we do it, and we keep on doing it – seeking love – and all our past loves we carry with us, as small but important lessons, lest we forget.

Like water flowing down a new hill, new territory. It will get stuck in a niche, a crevice, pressure will build up, and if the niche is not solid, which it never is, it will break, so the water can continue to flow. And it will repeat it – flowing, building, breaking – all the way down the hill, until the water has carved out a route where it can flow freely for the rest of its ‘life’.

I want to say thank you to my ex-girlfriends, flirts and flings. I like them, I love them, I respect them, and I regret nothing. They all saw things, in me or in the world, that I was blind to before, and it has taught me a lot. In a way I am sorry that we broke up but I also forgive that that was what happened. It were niches, and they broke, bursted, and I believe we have all found better ways to flow since.
