Love Gives Life

Is love about you? Real love is not about us; it is about other people. According to William Blake, “Love seeketh not itself to please, Nor for itself hath any care, But for another gives its ease, And builds a heaven in hell’s despair.” Love does not seek itself. Because it is not about what you do for yourself; it is not about how you treat yourself; it is about how you treat other people; it is about what you do for other people. Love is not about you. Love is freedom. Love is freedom because love does not require anything from you. If you have it, just give it out. In the words of Samuel Butler, “It is love that alone gives life, and the truest life is that which we live not in ourselves but vicariously in others, and with which we have no concern.” Whether we want to take it or not, love is not about us. It is about other people- our fellow beings.

“It is love that asks, that seeks, that knocks, that finds, and that is faithful to what it finds.”-

Augustine of Hippo

You can be lonely when you are with your best friend.

It is better to be alone than to be lonely when you are with your best friend.

You can be alone, but you are not lonely.

Alone time is the best way to heal yourself.

You have better be alone than to be with someone who is always disrespecting you.

It is better to be alone than to be with someone who does not know you.

It is better to be alone than to be with someone who is always treating you badly.

Even though you need other people to succeed in your life, you don’t need to be around toxic people.

Even though your life is not about you, you don’t need to be around someone who is always abusing you.

If you do, the person will never stop abusing you.

You have got to leave that person.

You need to do it for your life.

You need to do it for yourself.

You need to do it for others.

Because if you can’t stand up for yourself, you won’t be able to stand up for others.

If you can’t defend yourself, you won’t be able to defend other people.

Remember, your life is not about you, but about others.

Take care of yourself to take care of others.
