Heard this from Oprah while trying to extricate myself from a horrible relationship.
Lover,parent, friend, spouse, child - no matter who you are, or what the dynamic, LOVE does not hurt.
We may get our hearts broken, or be disappointed, but LOVE does not HURT.
It should not hurt our bodies,our selves,our souls, or our minds.
So simple, and so true.
LOVE - true,unconditional,romantic,platonic,familial - DOES NOT HURT.
