Love Does Not Hide Anyone

Love does not hide anyone! Love stands tall in the truth of what it is for everyone to see and receive it. Love does not tell half the story just to save time and feelings. Love is respectful, honest, noble and honest.Love is gentle, compassionate, willing to share and able to comfort.Love speaks boldly yet softly - Until Today

My professor told me - anything you want to hide you do not love! We were talking about a paper but it struck me at so many levels. He went on to say " the thing you want to blossom the most needs air, it needs light, why are you afraid of your own self?" 

I will always remember that, I apply it to all areas of my life and know for sure that love does not hide anyone or anything, that is fear in some form.

When I find myself hiding parts of a story I know that I am acting from a point of fear, I mean I can make many excuses and justifications for it, simply though - it's fear, I don't want any questions to have to answer. 

Love will never ask that of me, I created the situation in the name of love.

What are you hiding in the name of love?
