Want Love

Everyone wants love yet they're afraid of it. We're all afraid to open up, be vulnerable & say to someone: you know what, I adore you, I love you & I’m afraid you might leave me one day.  

But I say it to people anyway. Some have left. Some have stayed. Either way... it isn't about me. 

I still adore them and love the people that come and go in my life. Do I always like them? No not always. You don't have to like the people you love or adore all the time. Why? Loving others isn't about them. It's about us. 

Buddhism helps me a great deal with the attachment part of my relationships & friendships. I can't say it's easy to see people go but I know their journey has to take them away from mine. Practicing non-attachment does soften the departures. 

You want love? Let yourself be loved by others and love others in return without expectation. Then you will have love. It's not always about romance and love affairs. Not everyone will love you back. Just know that love is there everyday. Everyone has the potential to feel it. It's up to you to be open to it. 

Receive love. Give love. Share love. Be love.
