In modern days, we’ve allowed for people to love and have sex with more than one person in a lifetime, but not too many more… you’re only allowed so many “mistakes” – break-ups and divorces – before you find the “real” One, the real love of your life.So, the idea of love scarcity prevails. We are tricked into thinking the word “love” will lose it’s value and meaning if it’s shared too many times with too many people.
And I think it’s one of the most important types of love, because, as Alan Watts says “it’s only when you’re in love with another person that you see them as they really are … a divine being … when you’re not in love with people, you see only a fragmented version of them.”
Also, and maybe most importantly, if you love someone tell them be it your closest family, your friends, your significant other, your children…tell the people in your life that you love them when you do!! Sometimes it is all one needs to hear to get better, feel better, and maybe even be better. But mostly, love yourself and tell yourself as well cause sometimes that’s all YOU need 🙂
