Loving others entails accepting them for who they are. Letting go of the desire to change them and allowing them to be responsible for their own personal growth. You may also find yourself in a relationship with someone whose behavior is unhealthy and detrimental to your mental and emotional health. At that point it is wise to consider choosing to limit or not to be in their presence—and that is acceptable. It is vital to love ourselves enough not to allow self-destructive individuals to be mentally and emotionally damaging to us.
As we grow and develop our personalities, the important others in our lives will also change in the way they relate to our new personalities, or they will distance or leave our lives so that new people who will appreciate our growth are then able to enter. However it happens, it is always a move in a positive direction for us when we love and accept ourselves.
Another powerful tool for healing all relationships—family, work, casual, or intimate—is practicing compassion. When someone is engaging in behavior that is disrupting the harmony in your life, send love and compassion. You continue to wish them well; even if you choose to not have them in your life. Manifesting love and compassion does not equate with continuing a relationship with that person. However, practicing love and compassion allows us to let go of the turmoil that those individuals may cause in our lives.
When we do this consistently, we feel good about ourselves and are able to make healthier choices and decisions. Sometimes loving someone means letting them go because we recognize their unhealthy presence in our lives. Doing so in love and peace is much healthier than out of fear, anger or resentment.
