Ep. 29 - What is Love?
Show Notes

I came across the words of Iain S Thomas and it struck a chord. Here is what he wrote:

Before your children came, they were told you would love them.
So whatever you do, however you treat them, to them, it is love.

If you are cruel to them, they will think it is love.
If you yell at them, they will think it is love.
If you ignore them, they will think it is love.
If you walk away from them, they will think it is love.

 And if you are kind to them, they will think it is love.
And if you are gentle with them, they will think it is love.
And if you listen to them, they will think it is love.
And if you hold them tightly, they will think it is love.

Because we cannot point to anything that exists and say, ‘This is love.’ So you will teach your kids every day they’re with you what it is. And one day, when someone else treats them the way you treated them, they will say, ‘This is love.’"
