I just didn’t know.

I never expected living in real community would break my heart.

I didn’t expect it to be the hardest conversations I’ve ever had.

I didn’t expect it to make me lay everything out on the line.

I didn’t expect the tears I would cry or the pain I would feel.

But I also didn’t know that I could hurt without wounding.

I didn’t know the freedom in saying what I really felt.

I didn’t know what it felt like to be loved.

I didn’t know how to trust others with myself.

I didn’t realize I don’t have to try so hard.

Now I know and I never want to go back to the way things were.
