Thank you Kris again for reinforcing things I have to recall constantly.

“we only control ourselves and our responses”

I have to remind myself and others this daily.

Many of the behaviors and suffering that we assume are a “normal” part of love (from jealousy to infidelity to heartbreak) can be avoided. They are no innate part of mature, healthy love

I am so over the assumed jealousy that everyone seems to think must come with love of all kinds. Family and lovers always think everyone must get jealous. Can’t we all just love each other and be able to empathize and understand why loved ones show to love to others?
