Love Isn’t About Being Loved

Photo by Joey Spadoni

Love isn’t about being loved.
Love is about loving and not expecting anything in return,
To give without getting,
To serve without being served.

Love isn’t about being cherished.
Love is about cherishing and not expecting anything in return,
To listen without being listened to,
To honor without being honored.

Love isn’t about being held.
Love is about holding and not expecting anything in return,
To comfort without being comforted,
To embrace without being embraced.

Love isn’t transactional.
Love isn’t calculating.
Love is selfless.
Love is a gift we give ourselves and others.

Do not withhold your love, for there is no better way to live each day than to share your love with others and with yourself.
