     I learnt the hard way that Love is too hot to handle until one fully decides to treat oneself and others with full respect always. No because anyone Deserves it, and even with all the pain they cause others, but simply as a free choice, because it's the thing to do. You have been "Hurt" and it's an incredible painful path to walk, since disrespecting yourself (and sometimes others) has become a deeply ingrained unconscious habit. The courage to silently say no and step back from the "bad stuff" every time, even if it's offered in a package deal with deeply desired emotional consolation, allows the rest to happen... enjoy while keeping that light-hearted awareness alive in some corner and cry your heart out while you crawl out of the long tunnel to freedom where the Light will shine on you fully and thru all time...
