Too many people are in relationships where they constantly fight. Too many people are unhappy. Some people I know say they can’t remember the last good memory in their relationship… That’s just terrible. That’s unacceptable.
Love has nothing to do with ANY negative emotion. Love is inspirational and moving. Love gives us power… Love itself is a simple thing, but WE make it complicated. It exists in a pure form BEYOND relationships… BEYOND socially accepted values. Love is, in my opinion, the very fabric and nature of the universe. You are favored to exist every day that you do, whether it is by God, a group of Gods, the Karma you create, the universe, probability, science, or simply the people in your life. You are favored. You are loved. Don’t associate it so easily with concepts like romance or relationships. That’s not the only way to receive it… It comes in many forms and on many levels.
You must let it in for it to flow freely. We must all love ourselves, even for our biggest sins and mistakes. They are a factor in creating the people that we are today… You cannot change who you have been, but you have FULL CONTROL over what you will become, so aim to become the best person you’ve ever been. Don’t allow yourself to be distracted by what society tells you is needed to find love. Love is all around us and is a resource that is never subject to scarcity. You simply have to live your life in a way that brings love to you and makes you feel whole.
Now, there are definitely times where love will come from a romantic source… If this is truly the case, cherish it. Give them all your heart if they give you theirs… Be aware of their needs and of yours… Defend each other, love each other, work together, but if you are ever unhappy, it is wrong to let that be the case. Unhappiness is not a characteristic of love. Don’t EVER believe otherwise or allow unhappiness to linger. It will destroy you, your relationship, and your perception of love. Don’t ever settle for a situation that doesn’t fulfill you. We NEED love to survive. Love is the force that makes life worth living. Fill your heart with love and keep love positive and pure in your mind.
Love fully, love fairly, love immensely :)
