Holding love loosely


Don’t confuse love with longing.

Love is soft, bending, forgiving…

Longing is a form of neediness.


Would we think to capture a butterfly...

possibly crippling its wings...

by holding on to it with tight fists?


Love doesn’t carry a strong emotion.

It’s feels gentle, warm, promising…
 
inviting us closer with no expectations.

The purpose of relationship
is not to have another who might complete you,
but to have another with whom
you might share your completeness.
