I often think, when you love someone, with all your heart, is it possible to have the feeling of loving more?
You don’t realize just how much you can love a person until that person is hurting. When you want to take all the pain away for them, means you are loving that person more than you could ever imagine.
When someone says to you, “I wish I could take your pain away” or “It hurts me to know you are hurting”, is their expression of love. This doesn’t mean they are “in love” with you from the romantic perspective, it means they sincerely care about you with their heart – another form of love. It is okay to love your friends!
To find people in our lives who “sincerely” care about us, is truly a gift! Believe it or not, there are families who can’t even express this kind of love for one another, which is sad. Families like these let envy, greed, and all the nasty emotions get in the way of something that has the potential of being beautiful. A reminder, these people have their own pain they are clearly not dealing with, but in time, they will experience the feeling of “loving more”.
When people who sincerely care about you cross your path, they are there for a reason – they truly “want” to be in your life. Remember, they are a gift!
With Good Vibes Only – Love More!
