We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves 
to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection
 that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection.
 Love is not something we give or get; 
it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – 
we can only love others as much as we love ourselves. 
Shame, blame, disrespect, betrayal, and the withholding of affection damage the roots 
from which love grows. 
Love can only survive these injuries if they are acknowledged, healed and rare.

Brené Brown
