This beautiful principle was ingrained in my being by my wonderful Mum (and thanks also for the blessing of my Dad for being the complete opposite to show me contrast and what I don’t choose!)
If I love you, I want for you what you want for you, even if it impacts me.
You’re moving to live on the other side of the world? Awesome! Okay, so I’m bummed for me, but I’m so happy for you that you are choosing for you and you have my 100% support and blessing.
I’m moving to live on the other side of the world? I’m so happy that you are happy for me. I will totally miss you but our connection need not be weakened by geography, and I embrace my new adventure feeling your support and blessing.
We make plans and you change them? Loving what is, thank you for honouring your own needs – no grief from me.
We make plans and I change them? Much appreciate your understanding.
I give you a gift and you pass it on to someone else? Awesome! How beautiful that it gave you the opportunity to enjoy giving, and that it was to someone who you felt motivated to give it to, who could joyfully receive it and/or benefit from it.
You give me a gift and I don’t use it? Thank you for the loving thought that went into giving it to me, which I can deeply appreciate and value irrespective of whether the gift resonates with me or not.
…and actually, this is how I would be with you whether I love you, like you or hardly know you, because I want for you what I want for everybody – acceptance, non-judgement, kindness, autonomy, self-determination and uninhibitedly and joyfully BEing the full expression of themselves.
Freedom in unity…
Therein lies a great potency for us to rock the world 🙂
