We can never love someone enough to help them to love themselves…

We can never love someone enough to help them to love themselves… We cannot teach or show another the error of their ways, how simple their suffering could end, or see how loved they are. Each of us must find our own path, our own way. We are taught to fight, commit, at all costs, make it work, “til death do us part”. But that philosophy has gotten this planet to where it is; numb, unhappy. Why must we sacrifice our happiness for anyone? Where did this hidden rule come into play that just because we made a commitment or love another, we can’t be happy when they are not. Sometimes walking or even running away is what is best. It may be what the other needs to wake up. And if they don’t, at least you have given yourself permission to move on and be happy… Love is simply first about loving ourselves… © Jodi Healy
