Self-love is about reconnecting with nature and growing some of my own food has also been helpful as has getting rid of that box of mind tricks that helps to maintain the status quo ‘TV’ is also helpful. Always be kind to you, there is but one of you beautiful human
One of the most important things I have done for self-love is to find a way to reduce my working week by one day, leaving only 4 days that I slave away like a lunatic. To me a job especially a full time job is very harmful to mind, body and spirit so if you can find a way to do less harm to you then please do
One of the things I have learned is to start by being kind and compassionate to yourself and to find ways of nurturing and loving you – you spectacular speck of conscious awareness spinning in infinity in the all that is
“The distinguishing features of melancholia are a profoundly painful dejection, cessation of interest in the outside world, loss of the capacity to love, inhibition of all activity, and a lowering of the self-regarding feelings to a degree that finds utterance in self-reproaches and self-revilings, and culminates in a delusional expectation of punishment” Freud
“The most widespread misunderstanding is that which assumes that giving is “giving up” something, being deprived of, sacrificing..” Erich Fromm
Love is about loss, trust, of fear of abandonment. Elusive. Uncertainty yet searching for a recognition
“Before we give up on love it might be helpful to know that we’re all ultimately love amateurs. Read a love letter between Freud and his fiancé Martha, full of silliness and desire, and you might realise that even for the father of psychoanalysis putting love into words is really hard”
“is the ability to contemplate the world without the desire to try to reconcile contradictory aspects or fit it into a closed and rational system”
Do not be content with showing friendship in words alone. Let your heart burn with loving-kindness for all who may cross your path
When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace. A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love
A Pansexualist sees every drive as ultimately a sexual one. It really is all about sex.
Nothing like standing up in front of a group of people talking about love to make you feel like a wronger
My precious darling…Even when you use endearments, I don’t entirely like it…I don’t want you to love me for qualities you assume in me, you must love me as irrationally as other people love.
I’ve been an activist most of my life and really passionate about what I do. But it means I’ve got a superego the size of a tank. So my top tip for love is try to be less busy.
I know that i have heard many people feeling sad that they have not been loved enough and just a handful briefing that they are not able to experience the feeling or to offer their love to another human being.
When you are heart broke and feel you have lost love remember, and cherish the memory when you experienced love.
To love you have to stop referencing yourself. You haven’t had the same experience. You don’t know how it feels. You don’t know what the ‘people around you’ should do or what they think or feel.
