Since we're in the middle of the week, let's tackle a tough question today. Give this some thought...What does it mean to you to allow another person to fully love you? I'm not going to do my usual chat on the topic because I think we all might interpret this one quite differently. Think about it and share your thoughts... I'll post later on.

Have fun!

This is a tough one Chutzie. I know what it feels like to totally and completely love other people. I guess I would say you have to be real, let the other person see all sides of you, the good, bad and ugly. You have to open up so the other person can see clear to your soul and share everything about you with that person. I think that is what has worked for DH and I anyway. I don't think there is a subject that we haven't talked about over the years. It is harder for him to open up than it is me but he trust me with anything he tells me.

That's a good one. To me it means to be vulnerable, let the walls down to be real & be yourself & being totally honest. How can someone love & know the real you if you have walls built, which is a form of self protection but is also a basic form of dishonesty.

I would have to agree with Marlee and lettuce on this one. No one can truly and completely love you if they only know part of you. You have to let down the walls and allow the other person to see every aspect of you before they can truly love you. Without honesty, love will not survive. Without commitment, love will not survive. You have to be completely open, not only to allow love in, but to give it as well.
