“I give myself permission to love and be loved.”
Loving others is exercise for my soul. Each time I embrace someone, I burn away the unwanted weight of hatred and bitterness. Love is the most basic of human feelings. We are born to love and be loved.
Not only do I give myself permission to love, but I also require myself to look at others through compassionate eyes. Love is a choice. Love is not an emotion that rules my actions. Love begins in the mind when I make a decision to love. I express it with my actions and eventually it lands in my heart.
Infatuation is a feeling that takes over the body but disappears after time. Love is different. The seeds of love take time to grow. Once they take root, it is impossible to remove them.
I love with passion. I love unconditionally. I love faithfully.
I accept the love of others. I never question whether others truly love me because I fill my mind with positive thoughts. When others tell me that they love me, I believe them. When others extend their love to me, I grab it.
I lay down my guard around others. When I allow myself to be vulnerable around others, they see a side of me that is easy to love. I love because there is much more to gain from loving relationships than from relationships of envy and hate.
By focusing on their positive traits, I can convince myself to love even the most difficult people. I can love those whom I have difficulty accepting. The more I love them, the easier they are to accept.
When I have a hard time loving someone, I pray for them. I have found that it is hard to deny loving someone when you care enough to pray for them.
- How do I respond to the love of others?
- Do I expect love to just pop into my heart or do I cultivate it?
- Who can I pray for today?

“Forgiveness frees me to love.”
Forgiveness frees my soul. When others wrong me, the act of forgiving lifts the chains brought on by anger and resentment. When I forgive, the bondage of bitterness is broken and I am free to live in peace.
Bitterness clouds my view and prevents true happiness. Holding on to anger causes the heart to grow cold. I shut the door on the poisonous effects of anger and let go of my pain. I search my heart and extend forgiveness for transgressions old and new.
By forgiving those who have hurt me, I free my heart and allow the opportunity to love again. Forgiving empowers me to rule over my emotions, rather than being a victim of animosity and resentment. I am stronger when I am free from the heaviness of an unforgiving heart.
Holding a grudge is like giving the offender permission to rule my heart. By forgiving, I take back the key to my heart, and with it, the ability to unlock love and mercy. Love is strong enough to overcome the obstacles brought on by discord.
To fully forgive, I give up my need to be right or feel justified. Sometimes forgiveness requires that I choose peace over principles. The selflessness that accompanies forgiveness is a strong foundation for lasting love.
Today, I choose to forgive those who have wronged me in order to free myself to experience love at a higher level. With arms open wide, I embrace new relationships free from fear.

“I learn lessons in love that help to make my relationship stronger.”
I believe in love and the stirring emotions that I feel when I encounter someone whom I can call my soul mate. I realize that such a relationship is rare, so I carefully nurture it to allow those feelings to grow deeper and stronger, fortifying our bond of love.
I acknowledge that no relationship is perfect, yet everything that happens in my relationship has a lesson attached to it. I take advantage of these lessons in love to build a more positive relationship each day.
When I have an argument with my partner, I always endeavor to reach a point of forgiveness in a short time. I initiate discussions on the issue so we can find a resolution. This approach makes it easier for us to relate more positively going forward.
Whenever I make the mistake of doing or saying something hurtful to my partner, I immediately acknowledge the negative effect on their well-being.
I take a step back and revisit my actions. I put myself in my partner’s shoes and realize the impact. Then, I sincerely apologize.
Today, I take the time to learn from love so our love can keep growing. I commit to learning each day from my relationship and embrace the fact that every effort made to build a better relationship results in a stronger love.

My partner may put their hand gently on my shoulder, a friend may listen with deep compassion, or my children may give me a hug that just sings with love.
Love comes in unexpected ways, too.
I may be without a partner for some time when someone I have already met shows up again in my life, brimming with genuine love and ready to share that with me. Or I may face a challenging situation in a relationship, and watch that person come through for me in a way I could never have predicted.

By being loving, I know that I am being genuine, since I believe that love is the core of all of us.

I remind myself that love can solve any challenge. Sharing my love can help to heal all of the issues that I face in my life.
My love can heal friends and strangers alike. True love lacks boundaries. It is always there for me to share with anyone I come into contact with.
When I am by myself, I take time to feel the love within me. My capacity to love and give love is renewed with each breath I take. As long as I can breathe, I can continue to give love.

Knowing that I have someone to share my deepest secrets with is freeing. I am my truest self when I am in the company of the one I love.
The positivity from my relationship extends to everyone who I encounter. Having that depth of feeling for someone makes it easy for me to share positive vibes with anyone I come across. I see that there are far reaching benefits of being in love.
Winters are warmer when there is genuine affection and adoration. Challenges are more manageable because I know that there is someone to walk the path with me.
Having a trustworthy partner allows me to be honest about my feelings. I know that my expressions are taken without offence. I am just as willing to be open to my partner’s sentiments because love is a two-way street.

True love allows me to see light where others see darkness.
It changes my perspective on many things. I like the person I become when I am in love. I am a better friend, sister, and co-worker when the joy of love fills me up.
Love energizes me and gives me the drive to go out and reach for whatever I want. I feel invincible, like nothing is too far or too high for me to reach. It is this feeling that pushes me towards greatness.
I know true contentment when I am in love because there is very little that makes me uncomfortable or unsettled. Even the most difficult situations are like a walk in the park because I know I have something greater than the negative feelings that situation is trying to create.

There is nothing my family members can do to earn my love; it is something I give to them freely. There is nothing they can do to lose it either, because I love them for who they are, not for what they do.
The love I share with the people in my life is unconditional. When I express my love, I hold nothing back because I want to live a life without regrets. I give my all to those I love. There is no doubt in my mind that the people whom I love know exactly how I feel about them.
I share my heart openly and honestly, with the people I love. I am unafraid to tell them how much they mean to me. Even if they may be tired of hearing it, I tell them again. Life is too precious to take love for granted.
The love I have for my family and friends is about more than hugs and kisses; it is accepting their personalities, quirks and imperfections. My love is humble, placing the needs of my family before my own.

“I am above jealousy.”
I am above jealousy because I trust my partner. I know my partner loves me dearly and is respectful of our relationship. We are by each other’s side through thick and thin.
When unfounded jealousy tries to creep in and eat away at the trust we have built, I abolish the thought before it even begins to take root.
I am confident in myself and let go of any expectations for my partner to cut off all ties with the opposite sex. That is unhealthy and unnecessary in a relationship built upon trust.
My partner has friends of both sexes, just as I have friends that are male and female. As much as we love spending time together, we have social lives outside of our relationship.
I let go of any worries about others becoming attracted to my partner. Although the emotions of others are out of my control, I have total faith in my partner’s ability to fend off unwanted advances.
I know that my partner respects the boundaries of our relationship and intentionally avoids anything that could cause me pain.

Yet, even if I did none of these things, I would still deserve to be loved and cherished. Being loved and cherished, to me, is a birthright. Everyone on the planet is entitled to know the joy, certainty and celebration of being valued and loved.
Simply because I was born, I have a right to experience feelings of love and to be treasured by another person. Even though I am not perfect and sometimes I fall short in the face of life’s challenges, I deserve to be loved and cherished.
Feeling that I matter is a sustaining part of life. Even though people are quite different from one another, we are all the same in terms of wanting to be special to another person. I believe that the human condition compels us to seek out and receive feelings of being valued.

I openly communicate with my partner about my thoughts, feelings, and frustrations. I let go of the need to hurt my spouse or to prove myself right and, instead, focus on simply expressing how the situation made me feel. I always aim for understanding, not revenge.
I recognize that there are always at least two points of view in any conflict, and I take the time to listen to the other side. I have let go of the need to have the last word and I am satisfied if we both feel that we have been heard, even if we haven’t yet reached an amicable solution.
I make it a point to affirm my partner’s value. I also show that I am trustworthy by who I choose to confide in when we are at odds. I choose to avoid gossip and, instead, focus on achieving peace through positive solutions.

I love to do things for them. I make them a special meal or arrange a pleasant surprise. I might take them somewhere special that the two of us enjoy and pay for it, too.
I tell my loved one that I care about them on a regular basis.
I show them my love in ways that are sweet and loving – perhaps giving them a rose or sending a text that lets them know I am thinking of them.
I ensure that they know how much I appreciate them. This lets them feel good about themselves and gain confidence in the strength of our love. They know, without a doubt, that I love them.

My marriage is strong because a bond of selfless love holds it together. Selfless love stirs up forgiveness within me when self-righteousness tries to justify anger.
Whenever frustration tries to blind me, selfless love allows me to see my spouse through the eyes of compassion. I put myself in my spouse’s shoes when we communicate. Allowing selflessness to reign results in a peaceful home.

Like any other couple, my partner and I experience ups and downs. But, each struggle makes us stronger. Our bond solidifies after each trial and tribulation.
Our children mean the world to us. We nurture them every chance we get. But, the secret to our strength as a couple lies in carving out quality time to spend together without interruptions.

When my one-and-only does something nice for me, the first thing I say is, “Thank You!” This gives them instant gratification and we both make an effort to do even more.
