A few years ago I wrote this to a friend who needed a little encouragement because she was not having too much luck finding a healthy relationship. I think the advice is good for everyone...
The answer to WHY YOU DESERVE LOVE can only be ANSWERED BY YOU,
IF, and only WHEN YOU can
Will you be set free from the pain and anxiety you hold regarding relationships and life itself.
That's it... Plain and Simple. GO FOR IT!!!
Her main fear was being alone... something that should not be feared.
I sent her the lyrics to the "Mary Tyler Moore Show"
