Daily Dose for the Mind

on

If you look for love, in pursuit of what it can give you, it will hide itself. If you ask love to arrive because you are now ready, it will skip your door. Love is like an uninvited guest. Love will come when it wants to. Love will leave when you ask more of it. If you attempt to find a love that meets certain criteria, your new love may also make certain demands of you. Drop your demands quickly when love knocks on your door.

Love is warm and freeing. It is innocent, like a child without a hidden agenda. We can determine how close we are to someone by asking, Can I act like a little kid in front of that person? When we love someone, we feel like a little kid in our heart.

To cook something delicious, you need time for the ingredients to marinate. To build a lasting relationship, you need time for trust to develop. When you are dating, temper your enthusiasm. You may ask, “What is wrong with expressing my honest feelings? Why can’t I give her a gift and tell her I love her? Your words and gifts will mean more to her when she is ready. Love her, not your feelings.

      Thank you. Attachment is a surface-level connection. Love is deep and passionate. When you are attached to someone, as we have already said, you are attached to them because of how they make you feel. When you are in love, you feel so passionately for this person.

      Thank you. Love without compatibility, love without compromise, love without self-examination and self-improvement will never sustain a healthy relationship. Even though love is an incredible feeling, the more practical elements of relationships are just as important to the success of a partnership in the long-term.

      Thank you Sonya. Love and attachment seem pretty interconnected, but they are distinctly different. … The major difference is that love is a feeling directed toward the “other” (the other person, place or thing), while attachment is a self-centered—meaning based on fulfilling your need.
