Chapter 1 - Love, Romance and Reality

Love does                    

Love doesn't

Accept you always

Control or abuse you

Affirm your goodness

Blame or bully you

Encourage you

Judge you

Keep your confidences

Use secrets and sore spots

Act kindly

Need always to be right


Pout or refuse to talk to you

Empathise with you

Punish you for being wrong


Undermine your confidence

Take responsibility for its own behaviour

Use you for its own purpose

Make you feel glad to be you

Remember mistakes

Value your uniqueness

Devalue you
