I am a big fan of Michael Josephson, and I repeat his words frequently. During the time of year created for Mr. Hallmark and Mr. Whitman – I just knew he would have some great words on love:
Love is not a mirage, and it’s not a game. It requires work and patience, but its rewards far exceed the hollow pleasures of hooking up. The glory of love is not the satisfaction of urges, but the discovery of a soul mate who, in the words of writer Richard Bach, “has locks that fit our keys and keys to fit our locks.”
Love, he writes, is a place where we feel safe enough to open the locks and let our truest selves step out. It’s a place where we can be loved for who we are, not for who we’re pretending to be.
Josephson also shared a story I believe worth sharing – A Box Full of Love.
