Why do we think it is a good idea to be cautious with love? Never, no matter how we try does withholding love ever net an outcome that brings satisfaction. NEVER.
Still we hold ourselves back as if we are precious cargo that can be spoiled. As if not committing to the moment, the person, the event will somehow give us something to be proud of.
If we are honest it never does...nothing is farthest from helping us; to get LOVE, be loved and experience love then holding ourselves back.
The thing is though we have to give without any thought of getting anything back.
Just plain ol' "here I love you" or " here is a gesture to share this moment take it or not" or simply " I just love you."
We hold ourselves back for fear of being "hurt" when in fact the simple act of holding our selves back "hurts"
