you’ll just end up getting hammered


Take, take, take! You can’t just give and not take. You want to get something out of all this, too, don’t you? That probably doesn’t sound like it’s in the spirit of being Love, but it’s true. When it comes to Love, as much as you have to give, you have to take, receive, open up and accept.

Part of shining your Love on as many people as you can, is allowing Love to shine on you, too. It’s amazing how exponential this is. When you give Love, you fill your Heart and the Heart of the person you’re giving to. When you allow Love into your Heart, you let it be filled up as well as giving that person the opportunity to fill theirs up, too. It’s just Love after Love after Love. Really, what’s more inspiring and beautiful than that?!

None of us is as tough as we think. We put on stoic exteriors; we believe our past experiences have taught us lessons to harden us; we believe we can handle whatever life wants to throw at us; and we build up a galvanized outer shell, all the while weakening and crumbling on the inside. When the deteriorated inside finally compromises the integrity of that false exterior, it not only brings us down but those around us.

We’re only as strong as the weakest link.

Everyone on this planet is part of the chain of Love; we’re each a small, little link in that chain. Alone, the load we can pull won’t go very far. But, when you hold me up and I hold you up, and we hold up those four people over there and they hold up another six, there is nothing that can’t be carried. We have to give and support and we have to accept and be supported.

We all have problems. We all fight our battles. We have things that bring us down; make us feel helpless; make us feel worthless; that make us destructive and tough to be around. Whatever it is and however we externalize it doesn’t matter. What matters is that we all need help. To be honest, I don’t even know how I put up with myself, let alone how the people in my life put up with me. But, over and over, these special people show me how much Love is in their Heart. They are constantly trying to teach me how to Love myself. They show me that just being who I am is deserving of Love. These people offer me their Love because of who they are and who I am, without exceptions or conditions. It’s just up to me to let it in!

You can be that person who doesn’t want to burden anyone and can figure things out by themselves and never lets anything get to them. Or, you can stop lying to yourself, extend your hand and be part of Love. That’s just how simple it is. There is no pride in Love. There is no badge of honour. There is no judgement. There’s just you and that’s more than enough. Loving yourself means letting others Love you. It means trusting Love enough to be entirely vulnerable. It means being willing to be hurt and, also, helped. It means knowing that by putting your faith in Love, it will only bring you what you need.

be Love.
