Love is being able to honestly "let go", while not taking it personally. Ahhh, so profound!!! Yet, definitely what I discover more and more in both my professional and personal life. People take so much so personally, and when we do that, it is more about ego than about love. Offer your sweetie some freedom; freedom to mess up, freedom to hurt, freedom to move from a hurt place, and you may find that all the things they do that you find hurtful are really not so much about you, but more about their own mortal imperfections.
Not so many comments happening on this little page of mine. Would greatly enjoy hearing other thoughts about this, and what you think "love is", outside of silly fairy tales!!
