~ To renounce what you love for the love of another is an odd thing. (To me) Love doesn’t or wouldn’t require giving up any part of your Soul for someone else’s Ego. Nor would anyone who truly loves you ask you to do that. Love enhances the things we adore; they can’t be removed from our essence. Those qualities and talents are our personal “god” particles deeply embedded inside.
Love accepts, not expects. Period.
If you are going to surrender to anything it might be the things/places/people that light the fire with-in, because when you light up – you touch everyone. To share this with our family, friends and loved ones is part of our human experience – One to one…Ceding to what makes the heart sing, but never at the cost of inner happiness.
