Just love me!
|Just LOVE me,
like a fat kid loves cake!
Have you ever felt like that? When I first heard that, it hit me
like a ton of bricks. To be in LOVE like that or to be loved
like that would just rule forever. Is that not what we are all
yearning for? Do we not seek out LOVE from the second we breathe
as an infant? We search our parents eyes for that look of LOVE.
We smile because we know it makes them smile with the LOVE that
they feel for us.
To LOVE or not to LOVE? This is the question we all ponder
through out life.
Why do we yearn to be someones everything? We want nothing more
than to feel like the LOVE of one`s life. We spend our lives
looking for that special person that will make our world seem
like a dream. We want to feel safe and secure in our choice of
partners. But how do we really know that this one is "the one"
we will LOVE unconditionally forever? How do we know that this
choice of LOVE will not break our heart? How do we know that
this LOVE will LOVE us when the chips are down and we are not
that perfect person that they fell in LOVE with?
Well I hate to sound like a wet blanket here on a cold night,
but nothing is guaranteed. Life promises us nothing. We make our
lives what they are, right at this moment. In matters of the
heart we gamble, and as I have said before, to give LOVE is to
risk losing LOVE. That is just another one of those bleary
facts. Like rain storms and snowfalls, we have no control over
anything that nature has given to us. We can only do our best
with what we have. I have spoken before about gifts. Well, LOVE
is a gift when it is given and when it is received. It does not
happen because we say we want it to, or when we like a person
and say "LOVE me". HA. I am sure that almost everyone out there
will agree to that. I am also certain that the word "Stalker"
comes from that notion.
LOVE can be a very scary risk. "Have you ever been in love?
Horrible isn't it! It makes you so vulnerable. It opens you up,
totally exposing your heart only to let someone get inside you
and twist things up so tight, you can barely breathe. You build
up defenses, you build an entire suit of armor, so that nothing
can hurt you, then that person, not seeming any different from
any other person, wanders into your lonely life. You give them
your heart. They didn't ask for it. They did something one day,
like kiss you or smile your way, and then your life isn't your
own any more. LOVE takes your heart hostage. LOVE swarms inside
you. LOVE devours your entire being and leaves you crying in the
darkness. With the simple phrase, "lets just be friends", it
turns into a knife, cutting its way into your heart. The pain is
like no other you have ever felt nor ever want to feel again.
Not just in your imagination, not just in the mind. It's like
losing a part of who you are, or rather who you were. That my
friends is one reason we are so careful to not make the wrong
LOVE choice. I know reading this totally makes one never want to
do that. But we do, over and over again. Why?
Is it such a deep needed desire that we really have no control?
Is cupids arrow that strong? YES on both counts.
LOVE is one of the most powerful sensations we will ever endure
in our lives.
LOVE knows no limit to its power, no end to its trust, no loss
of its hope.
LOVE can overpower anything.
LOVE stays up, when all else has falls down.
LOVE is felt when one grasps another's hand.
LOVE is as much of an object as an obsession. Everybody wants it
and everybody seeks it, but few ever achieve it. Those who do,
will cherish it, get lost in it, and among all, will never, ever
LOVE does not waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead
it creates a perfect love.
LOVE is somewhat like an hourglass, the heart fills up on one
side as the brain empties the other.
LOVE is admiring ones heart: as admiration is the love of ones
LOVE is with you when you least deserve it, because that's when
you really need it.
These are a few thoughts that I have that tell me what LOVE is
and why LOVE is.
When we're incomplete, we're always searching for somebody to
complete us.We must understand that until we admit that while
our partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we alone are
the only ones that can bring that same fulfillment to ourselves.
No one is responsible for our happiness.
Some people fall into a pattern of needing that NEWNESS LOVE in
their relationships. These people will go from one relationship
to another forever, never getting off that roller coaster of
failure. They never understand that LOVE has stages. LOVE at
first is so full of mystery and excitement. Then we move into
becoming comfortable with one another and blending our ways to
continue to strengthen our LOVE for one another. We continue to
grow with each other, adding newness to each other by growing in
one world, but as two people. Our years together build our road
to our destiny of spending our lives and enduring tribulations
as one. If you want life to always be a bed of roses, then you
best grow a few gardens, because the roses will only get there
if you grow them or bring them to your life. In other words
sweet people of LOVE, your LOVE and passion is only what you
make it. If you ignore it or get too busy to feed it, it will
die or fade away. It's like any other living breathing thing.
LOVE needs to be treated with respect and treated like the
special gift that it is.
Another thing we must be careful of is to let those we love be
perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own
image, otherwise LOVE is only the reflection of ourselves we
find in them. LOVE like you mean it, it is the only true way to
let your LOVE for one another grow stronger and continue to be
all powerful and wonderful.
Relationships ask us to contemplate "forever" as a way of life.
It is a world without end of our own creation.

The purpose of life is to discover your gift.
The work of life is to develop it.
The meaning of life is to give your gift away.
The gift, is LOVE!

Hello my name is Dorothy and I thought you might like to know a bit about me! I
was born and raised in Canada where I raised 4 great children and ran a business
for 23 years. I recently moved to Florida to continue my life and enjoy the
tropics. My experiences throughout my life have built my character and made me
an independent women. My issues regarding self-esteem have directed me towards
creating a wonderful website for all the women in the world!
www.WomensSelfesteem.com My goal is to simply put a smile on your face, add a
little sunshine to your day, and help you find the strength to deal with your
fears and tackle your weaknesses, but most importantly to help you find the
goodness that is inside of you, so that you can live a peaceful and happy life.
I have had many questions reguarding why my website is totally free. Well, it
isn't actually really free. The payment that I ask for from my members and any
women that frequent my site is that they feel better about themselves, and that
they use some of that gained strength to help other women who also suffer from
self esteem issues that women are faced with in daily life.
