I’ve written about various forms of love over the past few months (on her Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/gwen.patrone). Yesterday was about loving yourself FIRST.
I think, as a society, we’ve lost the impact loving each other can have on our daily lives. Petty biases and marginal differences have corrupted the most important emotion we have. LOVE. 💗
Love is the language that brings peace to the world. It speaks to us by slicing through the hardest of hearts.
LOVE IS WHAT TRULY MATTERS💋
Stripping away the learned mindset from my socialization allows me to see what truly matters. The basis of all successful human interaction is love.
Stripping away gender biases, color biases, religious and political biases will have us see that we’re not that different at all and we have more in common than our petty differences.
I was dressed enfemme for much of the weekend (lucky me), and I was treated with kindness and respect. Many even expressed their happiness that I felt comfortable enough to express myself as Gwen.
UNDERSTANDING IS THE FIRST STEP
Peace and understanding lead to our ability to live well with others. It allows us to see others as our brothers and sisters instead of holders of opposing opinions.
MOST PEOPLE JUST WANT TO BE HEARD
When we hold conversations with friends that have strong views, lets try to listen without judgment. Lets open our hearts and minds to their perspective. We may or may not agree with some or all of what they had to say but this approach encourages us to disagree without creating division between us because they felt HEARD.
It is important to be able to exist with others regardless of their personal or political views. Can we accept and love that each person is entitled to their own point of view? Sure we can. Be aware that most media is built on sensationalism and to polarize people. Your awareness of this is the antidote to their negative effects on your love power.
WE CAN DO THIS AT WORK AS WELL
Love takes different forms in our personal and professional life. When we interact with the people we work with, we maintain professional openness. It is a way of embracing them without criticism.
Appreciate those whose love for you is consistent despite their possible differing perspectives than your own.
The language of togetherness and synergy is ❤ LOVE.
Can we hold strong to the deepest and most recognizable language that requires no explanation? Sure we can.
THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT OF LOVE
Lets all welcome LOVE in our life, and lets all give it to each person who we interact while expecting nothing in return.
If we take the leap of faith and LOVE OTHERS FIRST, it’s amazing the ripple effect we’ll have across the entire planet. This is the Butterfly Effect. The frequency and amplitude of the VIBRATION OF LOVE 💗 is undeniable.
Be Strong. 💪
