When you think of weddings, you probably think of joy, love, gratitude, family, friends, and happiness! If you have been to a few weddings, there is an excellent chance that you have heard the follow from
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
– ( 1 Corinthians 13: 3, 5)
When was the last time you loved without hesitation or caution? Feeling gratitude at a deep emotional level should also be expre
ssed without hesitation or caution!
Withholding love as a means of control only leads to distrust and resentment. Loving unconditionally means loving without judgment. Free yourself from unrealistic expectations and accept the person you love for who they are.Have you noticed yet that again, the same is true for gratitude? What great ‘company’ gratitude keeps!
Do not expect your needs and wants to be fulfilled by someone else. Allow those you love to express themselves without fear of rejection. Do not punish yourself or loved ones for past mistakes. People use the word love very loosely, but do not stop to think of the implications of using the word. Take the time to be responsible in how you show love. Allow yourself to love and be loved.
Gratitude is not to be fulfilled by someone else either. You should feel it and enjoy it. No one can take it away from you. Nor should you let them.
