Comforting Thought: Love is not ‘out there’ waiting for you

Love connection together

What my marriage taught me is that real love is only what you give. That’s all. Love is not ‘out there’, waiting for you. It is in you. In your own heart: in what you are willing to give of it. We are all capable of love, but few of us have the courage to do it properly…You can take a person’s love and waste it. But you are a fool. When you give love, it grows inside of you like a carefully prune rose. Love is joy. Those who love, no matter what indignities, what burdens they carry, are always full of joy.

  1. This sounds like a book that would help me a lot!! Looking forward to the full review!
    And I fully agree with the quote – there’s nothing just waiting out there, not even love! It takes a lot of work, patience, trust … to build a strong relationship (romantic or not).
