Releasing the burden of love

To the degree that we're willing and able to take care of ourselves—by no longer abandoning our present experience—we will be able to lift this burden from the others in our lives. 

When we take responsibility for all that we have disowned, we will no longer need to project our unlived lives onto others, and can be in relationship with them as they are, not as we need them to be. 

For this is how we will truly love ourselves—and all beings everywhere.
