Love

“Love is the answer, now what was the question.”

In the not so distant past, I had become enamored with a kindred spirit. My old concept of love was emotionally abusive and verbally abusive when I would not get my way.  The majority of times these toxic behaviors surfaced I was going to the bars to drown whatever pain I felt in the cheapest and easiest way possible.  However, this time when those behaviors surfaced when I wasn’t drinking and when I reached for a drink or drug I was disgusted by my responses and admitted catching a  buzz won’t solve my problem.

Learning the lesson I did about how toxic my concept of relationships could be been one of the most damaging things ever.  Instead, I embrace it as a gift. All that emotions I felt for that one woman, has caused me to grow exponentially.  Love is also funny because the more you give, the more you receive.  If you want to improve the quality of your life increase the amount of love you have for self and others.  Love can and will reduce all your negative emotions to their simplest essence so you can take only what you need from the situation.
