I wonder why people consistently maintain short term contracts with themselves – I know my love, affection, care are all meaningless to most people (friends, family, relationships etc). Yet, without fail, they all show up eventually in my life again, silently begging for it back when they realize the value of it; at which point ofcourse I have already learned the lesson I needed, and they have learned the lesson they needed and they are already off my train of life as I am off theirs. Wouldn’t it be easier to take someone’s care, bask in it, appreciate it and grow from it? Who grows and prospers from the opposite of love? No one!
