Whatever you do today, don’t make it about receiving love; that is the surest way to not get love. Oh you may get attention, you may get lust, and you may even get a little real love (it’s called “pity”). But you will never get the deep down soul satisfying healthy love that you so desperately need by trying to get someone to love you.
Love is a verb—something you do, not a noun—something you get.
Love is a gift—something you give away, not a commodity—something you trade or barter for.
So whatever you do today, don’t make it about getting love—you’re doomed to fail. Make it about giving love, and as it turns out, that is how you will receive love.
The ONE THING for today: Love is meant for others and should be given freely.
