You Were Created to Love With All Your Heart !! Try This For a Change

There aren’t a lot of things in life that are free. Things don’t cost anything and that we have an abundant amount of and won’t deplete. Thank goodness, love is one of them.

Love with all your heart. Our hearts were made to love.
There isn’t a finite source of love. You won’t run out of it and no matter how many people you love, there's always room for more.

You can open your heart and love those around you, and still have room to let others in. I promise.
I grew up in a household where we told each other we loved each other multiple times in a day. Whenever I left the house, I would tell my family I loved them, and they reciprocated. It’s how we always did things, and I didn’t think anything of it.
 I’m the same way with my family now. I tell my family many times each day how much I love them, and I never get tired of hearing them say it back to me.
I’ve met people who have almost never heard their parents tell them they love them. And while these people say they always felt love and knew they were loved, we can’t dismiss the importance of hearing it.
Don’t hold back on your love. Tell those you love how you feel and make sure they know. Let them hear you say it, but only if you mean it. And while loving comes with risks-- the risk of unrequited love, of not being loved back, of loosing the person we care so deeply about, it’s one of those things that’s worth the risk.
When my Mom passed away, I could actually feel my heart hurting. I understood what it meant to have a broken heart. I don’t wish that pain on anyone, and I don’t want to feel that way again. But it’s a risk we take when we open our hearts to others, let them in, and love them fully. For awhile after I lost my mom, I wanted to pull back my love, close off my heart a little bit, and love more cautiously. It felt safer. I was protected. That way, if I lost someone, it wouldn’t hurt as much.
And while this might have been safer, I was actually hurting myself. I was closing off my relationships, and not fully experiencing the joy that comes from loving others.
To live, and not fully love, wouldn’t really be living. We’d be going through the motions of life. And I don’t know about you, but I’d rather risk feeling pain again to experience the joy that comes from loving others.
Find meaning each day,
