LOVE IS.......patient, love is kind. It has no envy, nor it boasts itself and it is never proud.
Love is one of the most talked about subjects, yet so difficult to define. Can you feel love without being with another person? It is possible to have love for a platonic friend? Is it possible to love someone without jumping into bed with them? Is it possible that long after death and divorce that we can still love these people?
True Love comes from within. Until we feel complete love and acceptance for ourselves true love will continue to allude us. We will attract relationship after relationship that will be empty, abusive and unfulfilling. When we don't love ourselves completely we have low self esteem and tend towards negative expressions of love like addiction, jealousy, envy and unrequited love.
The answer is YES! You can feel love and be alone. Your heart can be so filled and overflowing with the feeling of love and not be in a romantic relationship. Not only is it possible to be in love with someone and not have consummated the relationship, but it is recommended if you want to begin a healthy balanced relationship. Loving someone after they die is not only possible but millions of people do it. Even after divorce, love does not end. Once the anger and resentment dissipates, the underlying feeling is love. Once connected in love, it does not stop. You cannot turn it off. The love still remains.
How you feel about yourself is what you attract
If you don't love and accept yourself completely you will attract others that don't love and accept you completely. They will try to change you. You will not be your authentic self. You will instead be the chameleon changing yourself to please your partner. When you change yourself for someone else you end up feeling empty, resentful and angry. Your partner will wonder why all of the sudden the person they initially fell in love with is no longer there. You can't keep up a phony persona forever.
Longing To Be Filled Leaves You Empty
When you don't love yourself completely you will not feel full, complete and confident. Looking for someone else to fill you, steady you and balance you will net you an incomplete person. Instead you will attract someone else who is coming from a half empty place looking for the other to fill them up. Two half full people does not attract a perfect relationship.
