Part 3. Conclusion

Go to table of contents

This day, I vow to myself to love myself, to treat myself as someone I love truly and deeply – in my thoughts, my actions, the choices I make, the experiences I have, each moment I am conscious, I make the decision “I love myself”. Kamal Ravikant

A few thoughts on love…

What does love mean to you?

The way I think about it is this: love will make you live a remarkable life, BUT, there’s a high probability you’ll get hurt in the process.

After all, to love is to risk, right?

I’m sorry to disappoint you…

And that’s what happened to me in 2004 after I lost my girlfriend in a car accident.

I loved and gave a part of me and then lost it, suddenly.

Before that, I remember only beautiful moments, smiles, fun, and connection.

Then, in the following years, I wasn’t able to love as much since I’ve been hurt so badly.

I was scared to try again.

Want to know the good part?

It took me a few years, but I finally realized that I couldn’t hold myself indefinitely.

Life was meant to be lived and I preferred to give everything than have regrets.

They say love is the answer and I believe it.

What about you?
