Love is True Self Reliance πŸ’•

I haven’t always felt worthy of love. After many years of contemplation I can say I love myself. Love is becoming an adult. It is emotional maturation. To love you must first love yourself than you are ready for others to love you. If you cannot love yourself others will have a hard time. This is why love is difficult. All emotions of the soul are caused by love. The origin of love is empathy: feeling for other people. Love is a force field: you can feel it but you cant see it or touch it. It is where the head and heart intersect. It’s an essence. Consider it a lifelong journey.

Hatred is caused by love. Real courage is to be gentle. To harm another is to harm yourself. It is not hard to be a good person. Compassion comes naturally; cruelty is learned. The wicked are always weak. The good are always powerful. Hate is strenuous. It takes energy. Anger only hollows you out.

Friendship is forged in confidence and trust. Friends are life’s finest adornment. Advantages result from friendship. Put family above all other concerns for it is the most stabile possession. With family you are always strong even when you may be weak.
