Today’s quote from “10 secrets of success” by Weyne Dyer: "In all of your relationships, if you can love someone enough to allow them to be exactly what they choose to be- without any expectations or attachments from you- you'll know true peace in your lifetime. True love means you love a person for what they are, not for what you think they should be. This is an open mind- and an absence of attachment."
Not an easy one. For me it was especially difficult with my son, who I wanted to become, to be, to look like etc… And only now, for the last few years, when he’s already 28, I can say that I do love and appreciate him the way he is. Sometimes being unhappy sometimes very happy about what he does, but not about him. I do feel now that it is his life and accept it, and love him the way he is. Without planning what he should be. And yes, it brings peace, joy and calmness in the relationships.
I’m still not there in some other relationships. But I’m on the way. What about you?
