It’s not about why. It’s about how.

To love without knowing how to love wounds the person we love.

To know how to love someone, we have to understand them.

To understand, we need to listen. That person may be our partner, our friend, our sibling, or our child.

Give the other person an opportunity to open their heart.

  1. I think “knowing how to love” is based upon all our life experiences and every person is unique in their needs. I’m not sure I agree with it “wounding the person we love.” It is an opportunity for both people to communicate their desires and the one who is receiving also must have understanding!

      True, how to love a person would be unique to him/her and that understanding works both ways.

      After a point however, I guess we must concentrate more on what we want to be/do than what we want the other person to be/do…

      Thanks for sharing! 😊
