True Love

We all know this beautiful fairytale of that day we’ll meet our true love who’ll sweep us off our feet and take us away where we’ll live happily ever after. Well, most of us have this dream and still do. Our longing for true love is there and we yearn for that special someone, just for us.

Before we find true love, loving oneself seems like the obvious thing to do. It’s impossible to love someone else, if the feeling of love is not within ourselves first.

Today, finding true love has become a full-time search in our modern society. Keeping or maintaining your true love is even harder. How come? What do we wrong?

There is an old saying: ”Truly loving someone is setting them free.”

We all know we can never own someone else, but we still do that. It is impossible, and this is where we go wrong. Living this fact of knowing we can never own our loved ones, that’s exactly the time we set them free. When this happens, a natural feeling of want arises for our loved ones. We will make any effort to love them and impress them. We will be creative, with a lightness in our step and a happy smile on our face.

As humans we tend to want that what we can’t have. Setting them free does not mean we must let go of them, it means we create a space in our mind and hearts for an unattached love.

  1. i think you are absolutely correct, you cannot give someone what you don’t have. Sadly people don’t really understand what love is. its actually not roses but rather the thorns that protect the roses. creating that unattached space in your mind gives you the space you need to redefine yourself in your relationship and in your own life…well written.
