What would you do for someone you truly love?
Would you do whatever it takes to keep them healthy? Would you go out of your way to keep them safe and to protect them from trouble? Would you spare no effort to make sure they received a proper education? Would you give them all the care they needed? Would you give them the attention they deserve? Would you push and challenge them to be more than they “think” they can be? Would you lift their spirits when they were in a “funk”? Would you laugh with them? Would you be truly present when you were around them? Would you be totally OK with their physical appearance just the way they are? Would you support them in their struggles and celebrate their victories?
If the answer to any or all of these questions are YES YES YES, then please do ask yourself just one last question.
If you would show that kind of love to another being, why not start by showing it first to yourself?
