The first time I read this quote I cried. I was in the middle of the realization that my loved ones love me even when I mess things up, and they weren't going to STOP loving me if I wasn't perfect. It was a liberating moment for me.
"To love means to open ourselves to the negative as well as the positive - to grief, sorrow, and disappointment as well as to joy, fulfillment, and an intensity of consciousness we did not know was possible before." -- Rollo May
