Love is not about ownership. You must absolutely let someone go if that serves yours or their higher purpose. This does not mean that pain will not also come. When we love other humans, I think, it is imperative we remember love is not about ownership. We don’t own our children. We mold them. Their failures and successes are theirs. Their choices are theirs. We must remember in every moment we love that we also let go so that person can truly be their highest selves. Love is not a trap. Love is like admiring the stars, at once breathtaking and moving, and absolutely free to shine in their own right. I love you means, when it has to, “I love you enough to let you go.”
