‘Love’ according to Iyanla.

 

When you need to be loved, you take love wherever you can find it. When you are desperate to be loved, feel love, know love, you seek out what you think is love. When you find love or what you think is love, you will lie, kill and steal to keep it. But learning about real love comes from within. It cannot be taken away. It grows from a sense of self. It grows from an ability to recreate within yourself and for yourself the essence of loving experiences you have had in your life. When you have not had loving experiences or when you do not have a sense of self, the true essence of love eludes you. Instead, you hold onto, reach out to, and find yourself embroiled in, your mistaken beliefs about yourself and love.

About The Roving Reader ShenekaRushell

I'm that person who read with a flashlight when the light goes out at 2 in the morning when I'm reading a book that I absolutely cannot put down. I arrive at the destination long before I ever leave the plane.
