"Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves, without any insistence that they satisfy you."
I'll admit it. I haven't always thought this way. My love could have had some expectations at times, some strings attached...oh hell, who am I kidding, sometimes I tied a giant, damn rope to it. Like a noose maybe.
Love feels better and so much easier now.
I am grateful for this.
