Love hurts?

 

Some say love hurts.

In my experience, love is love. It’s kindness to my own experience, others, and life.

What hurts is the very human parts of us that sometimes get caught up in it. The beliefs, wounds, identifications, expectations, insecurities, longing, and so on. Anything in us with a charge on it.

The two – the love and the human parts – are often intertwined in our life and experience, but they are actually distinct from each other. And we can unwind these two.

Eventually, we can more and more often allow love to be love, and our human hurts and hangups to be just that and be met in that love.

Initial notes……

  • love hurts?
    • some say love hurts
    • in my experience, love is love – kindness to my own experience and others and life
    • what hurts is the beliefs that sometimes get caught up in it (quite often in our human lives), the insecurities, wounds, trauma, neediness, longing etc. – when those get triggered, it hurts
    • the two are often intertwined in our life/experience, but are actually distinct from each other

We can allow love to be love, and our human hurts and hangups to be just that and met in that love.
