Fulfilling relationships and how we define love
Fulfilling relationships are something most of us aspire to have. All of us have our definitions of love and thus all of us make our ideas as to what relationships mean to us. Most of us romanticize love with the understanding that we get from movies, novels, and other forms of entertainment.
Lao Tzu in the book Tao Te Ching wrote
“love the whole world as if it were your self; Then you will truly care for all things.“-Lao Tzu
So much so that for some people finding a ‘soulmate’ has become one of, if not, the most important pursuits in their life. Without it, their life lacks meaning or is somehow incomplete. They keep looking for the partner that completes them and if fate wishes they might find them someday.
