I won’t name names, I won’t call anyone out or reveal any secrets, but I will say something here, and I will hope it answers one of the Worry Knott questions that I was privately sent, but does so in a safely public way. The short-version of the question was simple: How do you find love, and when you think you found it, how do you know it is love? I wanted to answer this because I think it’s something that many people wonder of, many want to ask but feel embarrassed to do so, many are waiting for an answer on. I’ll do my best here, and I will try to make it make sense, but keep in mind it is a perspective that is mine and mine alone, born out of all the experiences I have had, the relationships both failed and successful, the ache, the joy, the whole burrito.
The haiku below says it all, truly, but I’ll expound. I believe that love will come easy when it comes, and it will come when it is supposed to. I believe that the love will feel as easy as breathing, like you’ve waited a lifetime to do so, been practicing all your life, already know the dance steps even though you didn’t have the music. BUT WAIT, you’re saying, it cannot be this easy! Alas, it is not. The love part, the loving part, the knowing part, I believe feels this way, but it’s time, tide, life, circumstance, responsibility, timing, and two billion other obstacles that make the having of the loving hard. We’re always going to be faced with these hurdles in front of the love we’ve found, and it’s up to us to decide if we’re willing, hell if we’re able, to jump over them. The love comes easy, the staying is the work, the choosing it, day after day after day, there’s the rub. What they don’t tell you is it’s gonna be hard, as hell, love…what they also don’t tell you is, it’s so worth it.
It'll come easy
when it is supposed to come.
Easy as breathing.

I’m not sure who asked the question - but thanks for putting words to a question that so many of us couldn’t...
As an almost 47 year old (02/06) divorced man with 3 older kids (23, 20, 17 - still my kids 😉) who only dated one girl in high school and married her and was with her for 18 years before our separation (and another 5 before the divorce was finalized) - HALF MY LIFE!
I don’t even know the dance steps anymore (ps - I’m a singer not a dancer, ladies ☺️) - I’m just starting to even try and it is the most tense feeling, tightrope shaking, fear of failing, fear of losing again...but I’m not gonna stop searching and I’m not gonna stop trying and I’m not gonna let fear make me lonely for the rest of my life...
Tyler - I like “easy as breathing” -
breathing is good 💜
