As humans, it appears that we can get pretty mixed up about our choices. We forget that we have them. We tell ourselves that “we had no choice.” We deny responsibility for our choices. We let others choose for us. We forget that choices are meant to be followed by action. We don’t want to admit that choice gives us our results and outcomes.
Love says, “I care too much to let you do that.” Love puts its head down and growls and says, “I will protect you and stand beside you until you are strong enough to protect yourself.” Love grabs the sword of caring and conviction, looks in the mirror and says, “I love you enough to say ‘no’ when I need to and ‘yes’ to your brilliance.”
