All you need is love

17 Nov

Love has been on my mind a lot in various different forms.  Love, intimacy, sex, and relationships.  And how love is felt and how it is given.  There is a quote that says “you can’t love anyone else unless you love yourself.”  And I believe I have written a post on that in the past and how I think it’s bullshit maybe you can’t expect anyone to love you if you don’t love yourself.  But that’s a whole different thing and you throw in expectations.  I’ve always had a problem with love, maybe because I never really felt loved.  I would argue about what love is and I would with intention not say I love you automatically when someone just said it to me, because I thought it should be real love just not something society expects you to say back to someone.  Even when I sign cards, I sometimes deliberately don’t put a heart and just put a dash or something.  Yeah I’ve been jaded, but I don’t think the word love should just be thrown around.

I still don’t love myself, but I do have moments where I love aspects of me so I guess that’s a start.  And I only have a deep feeling of love for three people in my life.  There are others in my life that I have some level of love for but I don’t know how to differentiate it other than saying it’s not as deep as the others.  People try to teach me I need to love myself but if they love me for the wrong reasons or don’t care for me at all, how am I suppose to learn it.  But with these three that have such an impact I think I’m getting closer to the love and acceptance I never thought existed.

    Love is a difficult one to comprehend. It is good that you realise that the love you feel for certain people runs deep. That’s great progress I think. Hopefully one day you’ll love yourself fully! XX

I'l love to hear your thoughts
