Getting Love vs. Being Loving
Welcome - we are glad you came for help!
Many of us grew up believing that getting love from others is what makes up happy, and creates a sense of worth and safety. You might be spending a lot of energy trying to get love, not realizing that everything you do to get love pushes love away.
Be loving to yourself and others, not because of whether or not others will be there for you, or how they feel about you, but because evolving in our ability to love is the soul's journey.
By Dr. Margaret Paul
