Don’t Be Careless With Other’s Hearts
“Be the one who nurtures and builds. Be the one who has an understanding and a forgiving heart one who looks for the best in people. Leave people better than you found them.” – M. J. Ashton
As the media spreads red hearts and roses across our screens and phones let’s take some time to refocus on real transparent love. First and most importantly, let’s rebuild self-love. Get in some “me time” and some “free time.” Once you have mastered self love, then venture out. The first rule – don’t be careless with other’s hearts. Take time to figure out what you want and need before you jump all in. Get to know yourself, so that when you do enter a relationship you feel comfortable being YOU. Allow yourself to be vulnerable and courageous, not cowardly.
Let’s treat each other’s hearts with loving kindness. Let’s nurture and build. It can be hard to see the best in a person if they only reveal half of who they really are. Give people the option to decide if they are OK with the “your” full package. Be honest about where you are personally, financially, and spiritually. In the end, if you were transparent about your needs and expectations and it doesn’t work out you can both walk away with a sense of peace; no hard feelings. Reflecting back, you will realize you made the right decision and know in your heart you left the relationship and person better than you found him/her.
The quote above applies to every aspect of our lives. Let’s try to give and do our best in all that we do. What will be your love legacy……
