The hardest thing I've ever done is learn to love myself. The only thing that came close to it was truly letting someone know and love me. Even the broken places. Especially the broken places. For so long the goal was to face my "fears" so they could become somehow magically transformed by and into "love." What has proven to be the case is that instead of "fears" defining "love" it has become "love" defining "fears."
Or, in the case of this song: "From a frightened man who's love to a loving man afraid."
This song can be found on the Missing Peace album.
