Love without attachment?
Wonder without confusion?
Passion without limits?
Life for its own sake?
What if we could actually choose to live our own life? What if we could live deliberately with the intention that we made ourselves happy? What if we could really let go of living through the eyes of those around us – our friends, the media and our families – and choose to live with the purpose of enjoying living a fulfilling life? While the virtue of selfishness continues to be derided in the modern world, what if we could let go of the opinions of others and embrace our individuality and deliberately choose to be happy?
Staying in a relationship as a martyr makes neither you nor them happy. Being loving is not about surrounding others in cotton wool is it? We all have our path to follow, and it serves no purpose for us to stop others from learning the lessons that they need to grow. What is needed is for each of us to put ourselves first… We’re a long way off as a culture, but I wonder what would happen.
