How great is it that in this world, we get to love whether it be a child, a friend, or something in object form. Love can never hurt us if we can be brave enough to love without expectation. The day I learnt to expect nothing back from who ever or whatever it was I was loving was the day my life changed and I finally felt free. My happiness was not dependant on someone else as I wasn’t waiting to receive, I was just ready to give, and that in itself felt fabulous. With loving without expectation, you are granted acceptance, and from acceptance ultimately comes peace. As a parent, it’s so easy to feel like the love you give is never enough. This leaves you in a state of never truly being enough, and on the receiving end, it’s the children who feel as though they are never enough because you are always trying to fill a void of love. Allowing yourself to love without expectation gives us and our children the realisation that all is well and they are perfect just the way they are. It also allows you and them to feel like what we all have is enough with the ability to still DREAM BIG!! When loving without expectation, we have the realisation that allows us to accept the feeling of disappointment without resent, regret, sorrow or pain, but with the ease to always move forward and the insight that we are delivering strength, resilience and gratitude to the special people in our lives.
LOVE WITHOUT EXPECTATION
