First, in someone else’s words:
“An honorable human relationship — that is, one in which two people have the right to use the word “love” — is a process, delicate, violent, often terrifying to both persons involved, a process of refining the truths they can tell each other.
It is important to do this because it breaks down human self-delusion and isolation.
It is important to do this because in doing so we do justice to our own complexity.
It is important to do this because we can count on so few people to go that hard way with us.”
Then, in my own words (mediocre as they may be):
I have a naive faith in intuition; particularly when it touches upon the synergy between you and me. You might ask: what makes you so sure about me? What if you’re wrong? What if I’m not right for you?
I say: it’s fine. For you, if I go down, I go down swinging for the fences.
