Love is Love

“At the end of the day, love is love. And it’s not an incredibly interesting thing.It’s an opportunity where you can be yourself completely—without the fancy outfit or funny lines—and another person still chooses you every time.

Of course, we have sexual preferences. Of course, we have our own predispositions. But if you want to make something work badly enough, you really can make it work. It might take time. It might take patience. It might even take moving outside your comfort zone. But you can absolutely make it work if you’re willing to negotiate a level of expression for love that feels right to you.

At the end of the day, love is love. And it’s not an incredibly interesting thing. It’s more of a Friday-night-in-front-of-the-couch thing. It’s more of a lounging-around-in-sweatpants thing. It’s an opportunity where you can be yourself completely—without the fancy outfit or funny lines—and another person still chooses you every time.

If you’re lucky enough to find that, throw the rules out the window. Throw the labels out the window. Throw any boxes or containers or restrictions out the window. Because you’ve got something special and unique and magical. You’re the only one who can make the rules for your life.

And, uncomfortable or not, that’s something worth fighting for.”
