Love that restrains isn’t love. It’s insecurity. We may tell others how we feel about something they do or don’t do. We may make decisions as a reaction to others’ choices.
That is our right and our responsibility. But to restrain another in the name of love doesn’t create love; it creates restraint.
“Love means each person is free to
follow his or her own heart, seek
his or her own path. If we truly love,
our choices will naturally and freely
serve that love well. When we give
freedom to another, we really give
freedom to ourselves.”
Be blessed by God and free to love as He loves,
