Healthy love must always include an element of discipline and discernment;
a degree of distance and respect for another’s boundaries;
an assessment of another’s capacity to contain your love.
Love must be tempered and directed properly.
Ask a parent who, in the name of love,
has spoiled a child;
or someone who suffocates a spouse with love
and doesn’t allow them any personal space.
Help someone on their terms not on yours.
Apply yourself to their specific needs even if it takes effort.
