You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free. – Thích Nhất Hạnh
Many of have seen or experienced this – that someone in our life focuses on control in relationship to others. They may seek to control the behaviors or thoughts of others around them.
In right relationship, control is simply not relevant. There isn’t a need to control others or to be controlled. Instead, relationships are based on love and trust.
With love and trust, each of us can look out for ourselves and for others. Each of us can hold others tenderly in our hearts and minds. Looking deeply, we can see that only by starting with self-control, can we have an impact on the love in our relationships with others.
Being our true selves, we can more fully emerge into the joy of fully being our true selves.
