Do you ever feel as *intensely* in love as you do when you're a teenager again?
I'd love to feel that burning, passionate romantic positivity for another person but with the added frame of gained wisdom.
Think I've had several layers of guards up for so long that I've denied myself this end of the emotional range

A wise friend noted to me that brains do that too. External problems in our lives make it hard to push through but our brains want to do it anyway, roll with the stress.
It made me think—maybe it’s okay and right to let our bodies and our souls both rest. Acknowledge that it’s hard. Tap out if we need to, and love ourselves. ❤️
