- 33 He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground;
34 A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
35 He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.
36 And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;
37 And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.
38 He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.
39 Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.
40 He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way.
41 Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families like a flock.
42 The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.
43 Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.

sacrifice is love sometimes. swallowing your pride and your ego is love sometimes. it's not pretty to try to make things work and who ever said it was... is a fucking asshole. you want to find love? you want to find peace in love? then you must let go a piece of yourself. you must find a balance between who you are and who you want to be. you have to sacrifice something. that's how it is sometimes. no one is perfect. but by understanding and respecting one another, then by all means, something special could be achieved. that is all we want ultimately, understanding, unconditional love but not many of us are willing to accept the flaws. to accept the horrors of it all. most of us only want the pretty things. most of us only want what we've been told to find. to find the "perfect one." this I say to you, that… that is a goddamn lie told by these corporations that what to sell you the idea that the "perfect love" exist. this I say, to my friends, to my family, to my readers across the globe and I take this to the grave. so please engrave it on my tombstone. do not fall for that illusion. do not believe that the perfect love is out there. you will search and search and search and never find it. you will come up short everytime. find someone who completes you. who makes you feel alive. who gives you fire. who allows you to be yourself, flaws and all. find someone who admires your dreams. who'll support them, who'll do you more good than harm. find someone, anyone... it's okay to be alone sometimes but it is sad to feel completely alone. everyone needs someone to lean on. someone to talk to without feeling judged. without feeling some kind of way after, you know? find someone who contradicts themselves sometimes. find someone who makes peace with their demons and yours. find someone who's been through things. who's been defeated and understands what it's like to be under pressure. under stress and fear and has move forward from them. find someone who's capable of saving themselves. and someone who has the heart to save others—to try to save others even if they know they can't. the list can go on. but the bottom line is, to just find someone who makes you happy.
