Tough Love is a different kind of love that we must all embrace at some point in our lives. It expresses a genuine concern for us individually, rather we have to receive it or rather we have to give it. This love shapes and molds us to become better individuals. We began to view life itself and all that it consists of, from a different perspective, when we meet Tough Love. This change in our mindsets leads us to prioritize and focus on becoming more appreciative of life and people. Tough Love allows us to stop taking life and people for granted. It allows us to become responsible and productive individuals that can contribute back to those who have instilled and invested in our lives.
Tough Love can be given or received! We need to learn how to receive it so that we can reciprocate it when it is time to give it. Tough Love doesn’t only deal with the issues between a parent and a child because it is typical of many adults and must be applied to them as well. Don’t become closed minded and just apply Tough Love to those who you have deemed to need it. Individually, we are not exclusive or overlooked, because Tough Loves applies to each of us. We need to embrace it when it arrives in our lives so that we can become better and not bitter! Tough Love, tells us, that we will no longer live under the assumption, that we have entitlements that are to be handed to us, without us having to work to earn them. Tough Love becomes all inclusive when we take the self-examination and realize that we are sometimes the ones who needs to receive it the most.
Tough Love addresses anyone that needs to be given their wings to fly so that they can be released from their acclimated nest. Yes, we do need to be released from our own nests too! What does a nest look like? A nest is any situation in which we enable ourselves or others from becoming responsible for the actions that we have chosen to make and take in our lives. We have held our hands and the hands of others for so long that we can’t recognize that release season has arrived! We have to become keen in recognizing the season so that we will be released from the nest at the exact timing!
Tough Love affords an opportunity to allow us as well as others to be released into our destinies! We learn to solely become disabled from the nest so that self-sufficiency and independence can take root! Once, this happens, we are now embracing a state of mind maturity because we can identify with our lack of responsibilities and our downfalls. Tough Love is not created to make life hard for us. We must learn to receive it, to give it, and to apply it to our lives. We will then reap the positive entitlements of Tough Love that we have so diligently planted and allowed to take root so that we can become entitled to the harvest that it has produced. Tough Love is an extraordinary love that is needed at some point in our lives rather we need to receive it or rather we need to give it!
