“The simple truth is that love is a part of who we are, not something that others “give” to us if we’re worthy of it.  We’re taught that if we just find that right person, and that person “falls in love” with us, everything will be fine.  We’re not taught about recognizing the love that is a part of our spirits, the love that we radiate when we recognize the beauty and need in all the people that surround us.  Love is ours to share, at all moments and in all situations, but for some reason we fear doing so.”
