Quote talk: Believe it or not...but...I am a hopeless romantic, also.
I have learned that one must love themselves before they are able to fully love someone else.. You love yourself by not settle-ing for something (or someone) that is not good for you.
Liam is too much of a child for Hope. She is maturing at a pretty fast rate of speed. Liam is going the other direction at the same rate of speed.
Hope needs to mourn her love for Liam (which she is doing) and then go forward with enough open heart to recognize love when it is standing in front of her in the future.
She needs to put action behind her emotional learning & put in her heart a replacement to fill the void. It doesn't have to be a man...it could be a cause, it could be a friend, it could be many things but she needs to fill herself up (the void) with whatever would make her happy and crowd out the un happiness.
One walks toward the now and the future...using the past as a learning scale.
Talk, I love this post! You are so right! I am only 30 but I know what having a broken heart is like and believe me given time things do get better and a more deserving person always finds you ;) I was with my first love for 4 1/2 years all through highschool. I loved him and we even got engaged. As time went on I realized that he wasnt what made me happy but comfortable. I left and he ended up moving on in no time. Of course he waffled much like Liam. Maybe that is why I dont like Liam,lol. I soon realized his ways and moved on and ended up finding the love of my life. We didnt have an easy road either but in the end it was worth it!! We have been married for close to 8 years now and have a beautiful family. There are days I want to knock him over the head but finding him was one of my greatest gifts. I was reading some other posts here as well and saw your story and it was very touching. You have such a wonderful way of looking at life and I enjoy your posts. My husband and I also have that connection. I think it is hilarious sometimes when I am thinking something and it comes out of his mouth. Talk to you later!! :) I will make sure when I post to stop by here.
Destiny thank you for sharing another beautiful true story with us. I love how you said finding him was one of your greatest gifts. That is true love and how it should be. I think when Liam and Hope first were together before Steffy came along that is what I saw and why I fell in love with them as a couple. Why did Bell have to ruin that by changing Liam? He has ruined his character. I do believe in redemption and feel that it is possible to get the real Liam back. He needs major work and I believe he is living his life now through his dad's eyes and what his dad Bill wants for him.
Again, he needs a major overhaul, but if he became the guy he was before he found out Bill was his dad I would be happy. I may be the only one out there who feels this way, but I know he did not start out being a waffler and I wonder what happened to that guy?
