Love & Misadventure

I wanted to share with y'all a book that I've stumbled across and absolutely love. Love & Misadventure by Lang Leav. This book is full of poems and stories about love, life, and hardships that can take place. Only having this book for a short amount of time, I've already fallen deeply in love with it. When the words rein completely true to my heart, it's hard for me to ignore.

This particular passage has touched me the most, and has completely opened my eyes. It relates so much with what I've been going through in my personal love life. And even though I still want to hold on, I still want to fight for it, sometimes you just have to let it be. As much as it hurts us.

"One day you meet someone and for some inexplicable reason, you feel more connected to this stranger than anyone else—closer to them than your closest family. Perhaps this person carries within them an angel—one sent to you for some higher purpose; to teach you an important lesson or to keep you safe during a perilous time. What you must do is trust in them—even if they come hand in hand with pain or suffering—the reason for their presence will become clear in due time.

Though here is a word of warning—you may grow to love this person but remember they are not yours to keep. Their purpose isn’t to save you but to show you how to save yourself. And once this is fulfilled; the halo lifts and the angel leaves their body as the person exits your life. They will be a stranger to you once more."
