All Relationships Call for Love

When will the relationship end?
Has Love died or have you shut it out?
Are you at peace when you think of the other?
Do you know how to complete each day with kindness and respect?

We complete each relationship or issue in life, when we are at peace.
We have mastered every difficulty, when we are no longer afraid.
We can move on, when we are content with our part.
We have healed whatever is wounded, when we Love again.

In relationships we talk about falling in love and out of love.
In relationships we refer to love/ hate connection.
In relationships we make some people special good and some special bad.
When we can simply be Love in all relationships, we are at peace.

Resistance to simply being kind and respectful indicates lack of forgiveness.
The need to never see, hear or relate to another is a sign of being hateful and afraid.
The desire to hurt, resent or withhold love from another shows a lack completion.
When we are complete in any relationship, we have mastered the lessons of forgiveness and love.

Sometimes we have high expectations for other and are disappointed.
Sometimes we believe we need to stay together no matter what the cost.
Sometimes we wait until we are so hurt or offended we cannot forgive.
Sometimes we keep trying the same thing over and over hoping things will change.
Sometimes we grow as individuals and need to let go of the relationship.
Sometimes we foster dependencies and then resent the neediness.
Sometimes we feel cheated by the lack of intimacy, appreciation and support.
Sometimes we stop feeling the connection, because one has outgrown the other.

There are many reasons for choosing to let go of a marriage, friendship or family relationship.
There may be a need for space, personal growth, healing and for moving on with other relationships.
There may be a desire to care for oneself, to travel, to mature, to eliminate addictive habits.
No matter what the reason, there is never a reason to stop loving, respecting and being kind.

When you are wanted, respond with Love.
When you are needed, respond with Love.
When you are resented, respond with Love.
When you are rejected, respond with Love.

Love is not clinging or dependency.
Love is not worry or concern.
Love is not sacrifice and martyrdom.
Love is allowing harm or abuse.

Love is freedom and trust.
Love is freeing oneself to be fully self loving and affirming.
Love is trusting oneself to be guided from within by what is inspiring and fulfilling.
To make oneself happy and at peace yields happiness and peaceful in all relationships.

Let us stop blaming anyone for not fully loving ourselves.
The more I love, trust and free myself, the more I love trust and free others.
The more I love, trust and free myself, the more others love, trust and free me.
The more I love, trust and free myself, the more others love, trust and free themselves.

Bless us all for healing our relationship with ourselves.
Betty Lue

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
No disease that enough love will not heal;
No door that enough love will not open;
No gulf that enough love will not bridge;
No wall that enough love will not throw down;
No sin that enough love will not redeem.

 It makes no difference 
  how deeply seated may be the trouble,
How hopeless the outlook,
How muddled the tangle,
How great the mistake. 
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.

 If only you could love enough, you would be the happiest 
and most powerful being in the world.
