_ Finding you, Finding me
A few years ago, and for the first time, I fell in love. To be honest with you, I was certain love was made up by the patriarchy, as a way to control women. I know, I know. It makes me giggle a bit now. Poor naive young version of me. But I was sure love, the big idea of love didn’t exist. I had never met anybody who experienced love in the way I have now. Love without violence. And even if I had met someone, I probably wouldn’t believe them. My life before that point, was surrounded by violence and sexual abuse.
So there we have, young Nina falling in love and discovering that another reality is possible. Life taught me a lesson. Realizing, this way, that human relations don’t have to be intoxicated by violence. Finding you finding me, is my response.
