When Love Bites, Don’t Fight Back…Bite Back!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We all know that love sucks once in a while. It can tear us through the mud and make us feel like there's nothing left of us. It can rip our hearts to shreds and make us believe that we'll never feel whole again. And it can even close us off to trusting people if used in the wrong way.

But for some of us, hopefully, more than not, we also know that love is the most powerful force in the Universe. And that it is the bond that holds people together when all hope is lost. It is is the strength people find where they are their weakest and what is great is it can be found in each and every person.

Many of us, once we get hurt we tend to close ourselves off. We throw in the proverbial towel in surrender and acceptance that we're just unlovable or maybe it's just not worth the trouble letting people in. I mean who thinks getting hurt is fun? No one. But love and losing love (which is impossible actually and I will explain in a moment) contain our great lessons in life because they provide our greatest opportunity for growth.

This isn't always clear to most people, however. When we are hurting or in pain, it's not always easy to see the bigger picture and how things will turn out. It's especially not easy to see the benefit and actual positive purpose it all serves when you are set in the midst of some good old fashion suffering. But if we can make it a habit to begin to insert appreciation into the lessons we've learned from hard times from our past, then it will become easier for us to bring that gratitude into the present moment when things get a bit rough.

As we develop this habit, the so-called bad times will not appear as such, even the roughest storms. Not because they are downplayed, or minimal in comparison to any prior, but because you have built an inner strength that allows you a broader vision, a wider view of how it all plays a vital part in making you who you are. And the more you can appreciate ALL moments in your life, the more you will come to appreciate those things for yourself that you may struggle to accept.

Now, when it comes to losing love, that honestly is an impossibility. Why? Because you cannot lose something that you ARE! We all come from Source Consciousness, God, The Universe, whatever label you prefer to slap on it, it is the beacon of creation and the purest resonance of love. It is what we come from and are at our innermost core and being! We are love and therefore cannot ever truly gain nor lose it! We can only remind others of the love they have within themselves they've since forgotten!

And isn't that beautiful when we stop to think about it? So often we look to others for validation and our own feelings of self-worth. But we are often left feeling empty inside. Why is that? It's because we are looking for things in others, hoping they will see them in us, that we don't see in ourselves. But it doesn't work that way. They can only REMIND us what is within and has always been within us all along. People only ignite feelings within us and make us FEEL loved and secure, etc. But that actual love was there all along.

So, it's not so much about going into turtle mode when love and life get scary, but to open wide and bite back when life really sinks its chompers into you! Sometimes we bite off more than we can chew, but often those are the tastiest meals! 🙂
