Principles and Skills of Loving

Principles of Loving

More than anything else, we want to love and be loved.

Love is a gift.

Love is not time bound.

Love is good will in action.

Love is a response to need.

Skills of Loving

 I do not look over or through you, I see you in your uniqueness.

I listen to what you are saying.

Honoring of Feelings and Ideas:
 I recognize your right to think and feel as you do.

Having Good Will:
 I will you good and not evil.  I care about you.

Responding to Need:
 If you let me know what your needs are, within the limits of my value system, 
I will not run away.  I will be there for you.
