All you need is love -John Lennon
Yea, I don’t think so.
It sounds lovely doesn’t it? But I would like some clarification.
Are we talking marriage, career, life in general? Or is love some magic pill that if we can figure that out, then everything will be ok? And if that is true, what about when life just flat out sucks? Did we just not love enough?
See, we want to believe that all we need is love. It sounds almost… easy. I can’t control love. So, if something doesn’t go my way, I guess it wasn’t my fault.
Clearly, it was my ex-wife’s.
Or is there something more? Something beyond love that we need? I think so.
As important as love is, it takes more than just this one element to be successful in life- in your marriage, in your spiritual life, or in your career.
It takes commitment. Love without commitment is infatuation. (more…)
