Love. The end.
“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.”
― Christian Moulin Rouge
Not only one of the best love stories …ever.. but a great perspective for life. No I’m not suggesting we all find prostitutes to fall in Love with them (all though Pretty Woman is another favorite), but I do believe that it is “better to have loved and lost, than to never to have loved at all.”
Have you been “cured” of the need to be loved or love someone?
The one truth in all these Hollywood movies is that loosing a loved one can feel like the end. But as with Christian in Moulin Rouge, from darkness came a light. He had a life changing story to tell, that made his life richer and deeper for the pain he went through.
What are your Expectations?
Many of us wake up expecting to be loved. To be honored or wanted by others. Falling in love is the easy part, maintaining that love is difficult. It takes daily positive effort. Just because we are married or have children, we cannot stop investing in our partners. To put them first, and grow with them not apart from them.
But it’s not always that simple. People suffering from sexual addiction for example, their lives spiral out of control with the need to be wanted by others. Leading to the end of the current relationship to the need of the rush from new experiences.
It’s freeing when we “move on” to simply “love another” for who they are in life. Meeting lost souls—where they are—and loving them, not empowering or enabling, but just loving, gives us the freedom to love ourselves where we are.
Vive la révolution! to “Move on”.
