What it means to love
To love means to be actively concerned for the life and the growth of another. Being in a relationship is supposed to be an enriching, growing experience where you learn selflessness and love in new ways.
What it means to be in a relationship
At the same time, we should be able to get to a point in our life where we don’t necessarily need a relationship. If you need a partner to help you pay bills, buy food, find a job, be happy, meet friends and stay sane, you are definitely searching for the wrong thing. I know that may sound harsh, but
Choose love, even when it's hard
A strong relationship requires choosing to love each other even in those moments when you struggle to ‘like’ each other. That is why I always say, ‘Relationships are damn hard and it is only when you are in a place of peace, wholeness, satisfaction and self-sufficiency that you have the capability of taking one on.’
Re-look at your relationships
I challenge you today to look at all your relationships in a new way.
Are these people in your life because you chose them and want them to enrich and enhance your life?
Or are you unable to function without them?
Love is a choice
Love is a choice and you choose love again and again the same way with the same person and the same routine every single day.
We are blessed everyday by simply being able to rise in the morning and say “I love you” to the ones we chose.
