“Love is not possessiveness; many people think that’s what love is: you possess somebody totally. To possess somebody is to destroy all possibility of love.” Osho

I love my wife and can honestly say that I want her by my side all of the time. I cannot stand to be away from her. Now as it turns out, this is not a healthy thing. I am learning to give her the space she needs to be her own person. I am discovering (it has taken me a while) that when I support my wife’s interest in other things beside spending time with me, she comes back a more interesting person and our own sharing can be made richer because of it. If love is to flourish, it must be free.
