Your love is meant to be shared. Don’t bottle it up and keep it all to yourself. Not only are you missing out but you are depriving others from being able to show their love for you.
When we have been hurt in love, the natural tendency is to shy away. After all, no one wants to open up to being hurt more than once. The problem though, is that we all need love in our life. It makes us shine a little brighter. Having someone to love in your life allows you to share the burdens of this life, but it also allows you to give your love away to another and to brighten up their life.
When you shut yourself off from love for a long time and focus on your children, or your job, it becomes harder and harder to open up. If there are children involved, it also models that love isn’t worth taking a risk for, or that you think you are not good enough to be loved by another. I myself made this mistake. The truth is exactly the opposite, there is someone out there searching for you. They may have passed you by because the energy that you omit says stay away, but they are still searching.
If we hadn’t loved, we wouldn’t hurt, so hurting means you have loved . Loving means you were blessed. Let your wounds heal, remember the joy that came with the love, and then ….love again.
Look for love, live with love in your heart and share your love with everyone you meet. Be open to receive love back from them as well.
If all else fails remember that God loves you and so do I. Yes, I love you, you are my brother or sister in spirit and therefore part of my family.
So go ahead, share your love and open yourself up to be loved. After all, love was meant to be shared.
