An Active Decision to Care

“If you want to grow in your ability to love well, if you want to heal your mind, then you need to train yourself to see more than just what you are feeling. Being able to care for how others feel, while still honoring how you feel, is a sign of inner balance and maturity.” — Yung Pueblo 

Discovering the balance between loving others and loving ourselves is a lifelong endeavor, and we may never truly achieve it. But trying, striving to love well in every moment of our lives, is a worthwhile and fulfilling path towards connection, community, and camaraderie. Accept the imbalances, the miscalculations, the times when we overextend ourselves or act too selfishly. Love isn’t a formula; it’s an active decision to care.
