Is love enough, or can we actually love too much ???? I am not talking about overpowering love, we all know that this overpowering love borders on toxic, when people are never left alone to breathe with ease, when we find ourselves living in a matchbox, especially made for us by our LOVED ONE’S !! they may call it love, but for the person suffering it can be very clustrofobic..
I am actually talking about when you care for the well being of another when you try with all you have to have the well being of that person utmost in your mind and take on duties that you really don’t have time for, but make the commitment and fulfill every one of them, even when you do things you do not want to do, you maybe do all this for the respect you hold for that person and love, this is a different kind of love, but sadly it is not recognized by that person, how does that make you feel? I recently received an email, regarding a situation like this, the person in question felt that they could not make progress, as it felt very negative, doing what you don’t want to, but feel they have to do it, and even feel pleasure knowing they are doing the right thing, but deeply felt that they were being taken for granted, which obviously does not feel good. I understand the confusion they feel and would say that if we go to the principal laws of the universe, they need to accept/allow the situation, this does not mean agreement, but accept/allow it for what it is, this way you will find peace within yourself and not this tormenting situation you seem to be going through when you accept/allow you will start to see things in a different way and will start to feel good about yourself, and enable you to move forward, you need to keep your emotions and truth and know that you are doing all you can, nobody can or should ask more than that, if you do not have reciprocal respect, you know you do have the respect for yourself, and this is important for you, when we let the emotions of others deep within, we allow them to control our emotions also, we release our inner power to them, never forget that you hold your power, it is yours to draw upon as you need it. ” You are the master of your life, you are the master of your mind, you have the power to change the way you feel. You have the power in you to achieve your goals, to become the person you want to be, and to live the life of your dreams” Zlatoslava Petrak…… When you feel the negativity around you, think of your power and your ability to change the way you feel, the only power our problems and situations can have over us is the power we give to them, the action and attitude we adopt today, is what is going to shape our tomorrow’s, so I hope I have managed to answer parts of your email, which you kindly allowed me to answer in an open form, be strong, be you and most of all be happy.
