Love is a Choice
At the end of the day, love is a choice. Like respect is a choice. People can groom us for it in childhood, train us to do the right thing and to say the right thing. And it’s true that with good habits we are more likely to have a default of being respectful or of being loving. But in truth, we make the choice to be loving just like we make the choice to be respectful: one interaction at a time.
Even if we had to recover from pain, heartache or abuse, loving is a choice we can make. One interaction at a time.
Even if we were raised lovingly, most of us have black holes of deceit, betrayal and self-deprecation. Are we going to listen to the back holes of nothingness or are we going to choose to love?
When we choose to love, when we take the risk, we embrace life, we bank on our future. When we choose to love another, we choose to love ourselves and to bring flow and joy in our life. Can we take the risk NOT to love?
