All of us get to form a few meaningful bonds in our lives and, often, these bonds are among the most treasured of the possessions we collect on our brief journey from conception to passing.
We are taught how to win but we are never taught how to lose. We are vilified and mocked and derided if we aren’t always seen to be winning.
How? We must first give ourselves everything we need from others. Attention, understanding, validation, support, acceptance… love.
