oh, fmt, giving love is so hard. It really is. I have trouble giving love to people I do not like. I am working on it really hard. All I want to do wiuth people I do not like is cut them out.

It must be troublesome when it is hard to give love in a partnership. I commend you for seeking help. Sending gentle care

This is just my opinion but I'm not sure we can fully love others until we can find full love for ourselves. We can appreciate others. We can love them in measure. But when we don't love ourselves we block our ability to really love. And that comes from healing what is broken and hurt. That comes from learning to sort out truth and lies.

facinmytruth,
Maybe you already have started. When you say you have ‘the most amazing partner’, it shows that you know and appreciate your partner. To me, that’s a part of love.
