Love and relationships are truly one of the most paradoxical aspects of being human. For it is in love that we find the greatest of strengths and the deepest of sorrows. Love can seem to be so fleeting and unachievable yet it remains well within our reach if we only learn how to embrace it's power. To experience true love, we must be willing to open ourselves up and sacrifice part of our heart and part of our soul. We must be willing to give of ourselves freely, and we must be willing to suffer. It is only when we expose our inner selves to the white hot flame of rejection, that love can burn so brightly as to join to souls, melding the two into one, creating a bond that joins forever. It is from this bond that we draw strength eternal and power ever lasting. It is in this thing that we call love that we find the means to achieve greatness, both in ourselves and in our lives.

"and we must be willing to suffer."

Why?

No pain no gain?

How about
no pain
no pain.

We all suffer - it is one thing that unites us.  And if we love, we are willing to take upon us another's burdens - to understand that we are all alike, we wish to be free from suffering and to know joy - happiness is found in compassion and compassion is love -

Susan

Happiness isn't something that happens to you, it's created from within you.  Joy is a state of mind.
