Love With No Limits

Most of us long for relationships in which we are loved and accepted just the way we are. Our hearts' desire is to give and receive love in relationships that make us feel that even if others disagree with what we do or say, they still love us. They accept us. They appreciate our contributions to the world.

While it would be wonderful to have these types of relationships with all people, we know that's hard to do. We can, however, have them with some others, but only when we first have them with ourselves—yet this is often the hardest relationship of all.
