Has Life Made Love Hard?
Let’s talk about love, about your lifestyle of love.
Do you give it? Do you live it? Do you want it? Are you afraid of it?
Are you sabotaging it in your life?
Self-examination, especially internal is hard. Being honest with yourself about your feelings and your fears is scary. Being honest with someone else about those feelings and fears is almost impossible, especially if it has to do with them.
If you can identify your issues you can probably determine why you have them. Google it, “It’s always the mother’s fault”. You’ll be surprised at the number of postings.
I grew up in an emotional desert. My grandmother died shortly after giving birth to my mother. Her dad left her with his mom because he couldn’t raise an infant daughter and 5 year old son. His mother had suffered the loss of her only daughter in a high school bus accident.
Talk about emotional starvation.
Was love there? Yes.
There was love but that family was so damaged by life they survived by building walls around their heart. I’m a product of that and it impacts every relationship I have.
How do we take who we are and what we want, issues and all, and gift wrap it so that we can live our lives to their highest and fullest purpose in all things healthy, wealthy and wise?
That’s a lot to think about. But if I wasn’t passionate about living life to it’s fullest I wouldn’t be here on this journey with you.
"God sent an angel to speak to me--
A word He was fain I hear;
And the angel brought the message
And whispered it in my ear.
"God knew I needed the word He sent--
I had lost the zest of fight;
And the right was all but beaten;
The wrong it was all but right.
"Simple the word that He sent me--
But it soothed a spirit raw
With the pain of too much striving--
’Twas 'Love fulfills the law.'"
