Does true love exist or does love become true? Do we stumble across true love or is it something we cultivate, something we learn? Is true love sealed with a kiss, or is love an art that takes a lifetime of practice?
One thing is certain, we all carry a mixed bag of love lessons. Some ideas on “true love” are helpful, some are hurtful.
Now, if you experience self-silencing, resentment, depression, anxiety, or loss of self, you may need to revise how you think about love or what you expect from love.
Take a pause and ask yourself ...
1) What is love?
2) Am I loving toward myself?
3) Am I loving toward others?
4) Are other’s loving toward me?
5) Or do I need some more practice giving and receiving love?
