Love does not make you fragile and vulnerable. Instead, when you are deeply rooted in Love, you are grounded, steady in storms. This steadiness-in-Love makes you practical, realistic, clear-eyed, gentle, forgiving of yourself and others, gentle, with a clear and firm sense of yourself and your own worth.
