When you are a loving, caring, attractive person who realizes you possess these qualities, you tend to project these traits in your daily encounters, and assume that those you devote your energy to are like you, because for you the world is a loving, caring and attractive place.
Most people will never realize what a precious gift it is to love someone, and how much more precious it is, to be loved. A beggar suspects all others of begging; a thief, all others of theft.
Fools who talk of compatibility forget that it’s never about convenience, but working at something, every day. Yes, we project ourselves all the time. Our passions, our insecurities, our disappointments.
It is only those of us who have realized the true value of being loved, who have learnt to balance fears with resolute positive actions, and who find their worlds are beautiful, who are able to love others.
We can never find peace or love, if we begin our journey by looking for it in others, but have none of it ourselves.
