Jordan Gray says that there will only ever be one reason for you to love, and love with abandon.
People fear entering into romantic relationships for a number of reasons.
Whatever excuses we can wedge between ourselves and love, we’ve used them all.
He’s too in love with his work.
She’s too small town.
He might leave me.
She’s a bit of a player.
I’ve been hurt in the past.
I’ve never loved anyone fully.
My parents abandoned me.
I’m fundamentally unlovable.
I’m not enough.
But there is only one reason to love…
And to love with abandon.
To love with such force that it knocks bystanders on their butts when they see you and your partner kiss each other goodbye.
And that reason is…
Love EXPANDS you.
People often fear relationships for fear of being held back in life.
They think it will take time away from their passions, their friends, their careers…
But true love doesn’t slow you, it grows you.
It doesn’t make you less you, it makes you more you.
It doesn’t take time away from your career, it makes you more efficient and blissfully happy in your career.
It doesn’t take you away from your friends, it helps you understand yourself better to the degree that you won’t want to hang out with the friends that weren’t aligned with you to begin with.
It won’t hold you back from your passions, it will light you up inside and make you seek more unique and amazing experiences that will be congruent with your lit-up soul state.
True love has never wanted to limit you. It only wants what is best for your highest self. When you’re with the right person everything in your life is that much more effortless. They are the super fuel in your life’s gas tank.
So give yourself to it.
Fall into the darkness and let love catch you.
Or free fall. In bliss.
Either way, love will change your entire universe.
Try giving yourself to it fully, and see what happens.
