attracting love, being love
Any relationship with another can be no better than our relationship with our self. It takes self-awareness, willingness to communicate fully and honestly and put time into a relationship. It takes a willingness to be vulnerable and present to the best of one’s ability. (This means the relationship to your self above all.) It takes living into one’s own values and having respect for the other person’s values. (Or the values of different aspects of your self!) It means honoring one another’s needs equally.
Love is, above all, the gift of oneself. ~Jean Anouilh
This type of relationship is deeply fulfilling and rewarding on many levels. Don’t wait for another to play with, play with your self! You will find the same rewards within your heart for your own acceptance and love. And then you will be more likely to attract that kind of love from others.
