💔Love hurts...if you’re not ready for it (or if your partner isn’t). When we aren’t fully healed from old wounds, past traumas, and insecurities, we cannot fully understand the concept of love. .
Love is not a feeling. Love isn’t needing someone. .
Love is a choice. ✨
Love is recognizing someone else for all of their beauty (inside) and choosing to give your extra time and attention to them...because you want to. And they choose to do the same for you. There are no expectations that they must do x, y & z to prove their love. The only thing that we must do, is uphold our own responsibilities, live true to our core values with integrity and gratitude. And give love freely. .
We must choose a partner in life whose values align with our own to understand each other. If your partner does not value your drive for success in career, he or she will resent you rather than support you for spending extra hours in the office. But where does that resentment come from? Likely from an unfilled cup that has a crack in it. It’s not always simply misaligned values. A person who is not fully healed from their past, will continue to seek from you to keep their cup full. And you will feel guilt for not being able to constantly keep their cup full. This is called codependency. .
All of those cracks in the cup need to be repaired so that we don’t need to draw from anyone else’s cups. .
So fill in the cracks with self love, and positive affirmations, and your cup will begin to overflow.
