Bring love with you into a relationship…

Oftentimes we go into relationships looking for love. Looking for a love that will fill our ’empty spaces.’ What we need to take recognition of is that we must bring love with us into the relationship. For love to work we must bring a strong sense of who we are and a strong sense of purpose into the connection. We have to bring our sense of value and an excitement about who we are. All of this combined is what makes up the love we go into the relationship able to share. If we do not bring this into the relationship then love cannot happen. Instead of sharing our love from the inside we end up using our partner for the love they have to give and it is taken. Once love is used and taken and not shared, love dies. The best thing we can bring into love is our love for ourselves. The more we love ourselves the more love we have to share. When we share it, it increases. If we are with someone who does not have strong sense of self or purpose they will not know what to do with our love. They will take it but they will not believe it is real or feel as if they deserve it. Once this type of poison enters the relationship, they will do subtle things to make their way out of the love. Make sure you love yourself and that whoever you love has their own healthy sense of love, deservability and excitement about who they are. If this isn’t present we will end up in a crazy-making situation and that never ends with love.
