Love requires discipline

 

Happy forthright Friday. Our positive quote of the day states: “Love isn’t something natural. Rather it requires discipline, concentration, patience, faith, and the overcoming of narcissism. It isn’t a feeling, it is a practice,” by Eric Fromm. Love can be romantic, familial, and instinctual. But mostly love is a choice. We choose the relationships we have, the people we allow in our lives, and the commitments we keep. Love means using the word ‘I’ less and ‘we’ more. It means considering the well being and happiness of others equally, if not more so than our own. It doesn’t bow down, cower, seek revenge, or accept abuse. It encourages, extends grace, and is patient. Occasionally, we have to love from a distance. Just as we love others, we must also love ourselves. #Beinspired #Love #LuminousQuotes
