“When I lose at love, I do not lose love—but rather simply one possibility of love. So I pause—I turn from this past love, lost, and commit myself to now—to the hard and worthwhile work of being friends with myself. Then, I pause again—and step forward into the unknown future, with love in my heart.” – Unknown
One of my best friends shared this with me the other day and I’ve read it over and over. It’s perfect! It’s not always the easiest thing to believe at first when you’re hurt, but it’s the clarity that comes to you once you have calmed down, processed it all and accepted.
We all get multiple tastes of love and just because we may lose from time to time, doesn’t mean we lose love, just at one possibility. It’s true, every time I take a minor hit in the “love” department, I go back to working on being friends with myself, reminding myself to love me again so that I can go out into the world with love in my heart to hopefully share time and time again until I win at love.; constantly reminding myself that I will never lose love!
