Love is a choice

Withholding love is a bit like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. You may hold back your love in the name of security or safety, but these are illusions, and in time you will stand as a dwarf compared to the person you could have potenially become if you had chosen love.

Love is a choice. When we choose love, our spirit expands. When we choose not to love, our spirit shrivels.
