I have used “special” love relationships to alleviate the pain caused by the belief in separation. What I called love was always an effort to find validation outside myself of my worth. My relationships then became a means of getting….not of giving and receiving.
Years ago, after leaving a very painful relationship that was based on abuse and victimhood, I committed to learn what love was. Since then, I have worked on acknowledging and letting go of the blocks to the love that I am.
As I deepen my relationship with my Creator, I understand that nothing can change who I really am. I realize I am love, whole and complete. From this state of mind, I relate to others in loving and joyful ways, giving and receiving love instead of relating to get.
