When we are looking for others to love us back ‘our way’, in the way we ourselves express love, it is from this expectation that we often actually miss the fact of love being expressed all around us.

When you’re open to the uniqueness of somebody else’s expression of love, this grows the appreciation of the other and you love them even more, confirming you both in the process, and in that joy there’s even more to love.
