Wishcasting Wednesday: How Do You Wish To Be Loved?

How Do I Wish To Be Loved?

I wish to be loved honestly.  I think a big part of love is seeing someone as they really are and not only accepting that reality, but placing value on it.

There are a few ways we can love dishonestly:

  • Loving the past at the expense of the present
  • Loving who we wish our loved ones were
  • Loving who they have the potential to become more than who they are
  • Loving because they meet some need — money, shelter, emotional support — and we’re afraid it will be taken away if we don’t love
  • Loving because we are being hurt by someone and need to justify their presence in our life
  • Loving because the idea of not loving makes us feel afraid or because we don’t know what else to do

Loving dishonestly seems so complicated now that I’ve written it out; I guess I also want to be loved simply.  Just loved, no explanations needed.

    Wonderful wish! I felt myself falling into loving dishonestly, mainly loving people because they’ve hurt me and I feel the need to love them as some sort of reasoning or explanation. Loving honestly is much better.

    As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you as well.

    • Jill October 12, 2011 at 7:57 PM #

      Thank you. It can be such a trap — and the people who have hurt me are deserving of love, but I am not obligated to be the one to provide it.

  16. April Cole October 12, 2011 at 12:05 AM #

    Oh such a wonderful wish! :] To be loved “honestly”.
    As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well.

    • Jill October 12, 2011 at 7:56 PM #

      Thank you!
