Love another day, by Lexi Blake
Might not know who I was, but I know who I want to be.
"You can't fix someone. That's not what love does. Love can make a person want to fix himself. That's the key". He frowned at his wife. "I said love. I want to vomit."
She smiled up brilliantly at him. "You go ahead, babe. I know how hard that is for you. But you're right. You couldn't force me to walk into the light. I lived in darkness, but when I met you, I wanted that light. I wanted you so badly I had to fix my world to have you".
I have been told I should sometimes let karma handle things.
Sometimes the universe deals us shitty cards and how we handle it is how we'll be judged.
She'd survived. She might have made a lot of mistakes along the way, but she'd survived and come through the other side.
She'd become a woman who thought of others first, who put kindness above self-interest. Who sacrificed herself.
Who needed to let a man love her so all those good things she did didn't mean she gave up a life of happiness.
