It’s always easier to wait. For the other person to say I love you.
For the other person to apologize.
For the other person to admit how they’ve been wrong and stupid and childish
But don’t do the easy thing go first
Say I love you. Even if you’re not sure they’ll say it back.
Apologize even if you might be the more wronged party
Admit that you messed up screwed up and acted a fool
It takes a spoonful of humility and a bucket full of grace
But when you do go first and say
the thing that takes courage you can lead others from fear and doubt
into love and grace
and it all starts with going first
