It’s possible

You may say, “Love, compassion, joy, and equanimity are the way that saints love, so since I’m not a saint, I can’t possibly love that way.”

The Buddha was a human being, and he practiced as we do.

At first, love can be overshadowed by attachment, possessiveness, and the desire to control.

But with the practice of mindfulness, concentration, and insight, we can transform these hindrances and have a love that is spacious, all-encompassing, and marvelous.
