Love does not demand its own way. If we’re making demands, we aren’t acting in love. We’re making a withdrawal from that relationship that will ultimately lead to more unhappiness. The answer is kindness. The word kindness in the original language means to be “beneficial or useful.” Spend time and energy to discover what would be useful or beneficial to the other person in your relationship and choose to do it. The results can be startling. Kindness often begets kindness because love is kind.
