“We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection.
Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – we can only love others as much as we love ourselves. Shame, blame, disrespect, betrayal, and the withholding of affection damage the roots from which love grows. Love can only survive these injuries if they are acknowledged, healed and rare.”
~ Brene Brown
I love this quote.
It resonates all through my being as truth. These are not just words to me, they are my experience.
Our deepest nature resonates with love. If we choose to live a life with happiness and peace, it is our work to remove the ways we damage the roots from which love grows. Shame, blame, disrespect, betrayal and withholding of affection must be put to rest.
