One would think that receiving love would be welcome by everyone. What’s not to like about love and what it can do for you? Here’s where the obvious ends though. To receive love requires the awareness of recognizing and acknowledging it first. Parents demonstrate love for their children by caring and nurturing for them. Their kids are oblivious to the fact that they are receivers of this love until they are old enough to step beyond self-centredness and appreciate the gift of love their parents have bestowed on them. This realization does not happen to everyone. Loving parents may not figure in someone’s life. Self-absorption in adulthood usually excludes the ability to a greater or lesser extent to recognize, acknowledge and receive love. Not knowing love early on influences how one is able to receive love when they grow up. Love is a great gift that is ours for the taking however, we must first recognize it to be able to receive it.
To your Happiness,
