I love you... or do I love me?
“The beginning of love
is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves,
the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image.
If in loving them
we do not love what they are,
but only their potential likeness to ourselves,
then we do not love them:
we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them”
― Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island
