It’s okay to have emotions, and sentiments for others. But always remember:
Love must make you feel strong, not weak or crippled.
When you say you love someone, it must comes from strength. It means that you have something to give, to support, or to embrace. It needs not much, but it must always comes from strength.
Your love cannot come from weakness, neediness, greediness, jealousy, or your personal desires. That’s not love. That’s begging, craving and possessiveness.
When you love someone, you must not take away anything from other people. You do not demand anything from other people. When you love someone, you care, you encourage, you give what you have, even just a little.
And you must learn to be willing to not receive anything in return. Because the love that comes backwards cannot spread forward or around.
When you raise a cow to have their meat, that’s not love. When you grow a flower just to pick it the next day, that’s not love.
Never mistake love for anything that takes away its pure meanings and strength.
When you say you love what you are doing, you don’t take away the results, the fame, the money or the pride followed. When you say you love what you are doing, you give. You give strength, commitment, efforts, perseverance, dedication, time, or anything within your capacity. You can’t give excuses if you say you love something. Give what you have; do not try to explain, and do not worry about the rest. In love must comes happiness, not worries, fears, and burdens.
Love is tough. Love is hard. But at the same time, love is simple, and never meant to be complicated.
Love is of constant growth, of lessons, of small givings. Love is also about letting go, of knowing about yourself, and others.
Don’t worry, be happy. Whatever choices you make.
Breathe. And trust all will be okay with love on your side.
