“You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free” Thich Nhat Hanh
The difference between narcissistic love and healthy love:
Narcissistic love seeks to use others as supply.
That kind of love controls and manipulates to only get own needs met,
without consideration how the other person might be impacted or feel.
Actually, the word “love” in this case
is a cover up term for abuse and neglect.
Healthy love seeks the happiness of the other person.
This kind of love lets the beloved be free
and does not use them to get own needs met.
Love that allows for freedom and space
is also deeply considerate and compassionate.
Do you feel free in your relationship?
Then you are being truly loved.
