Encouraging or Discouraging

True love will not insist on an “exclusive” friendship. Some students become very possessive of a boyfriend or girlfriend’s time and attention. It may seem flattering at first, but it is rooted in distrust and insecurity. Instead of protecting and providing for the other person, this approach restricts and stifles a person’s happiness, health and spiritual growth. True love encourages healthy interaction with others.

True love will not do anything to damage the happiness, health and spiritual growth of another person. So how do you know when you have found true love? You know love is real when you make the happiness, health, and spiritual growth of your boyfriend or girlfriend as important to you as your own. That’s what it means to protect and provide for someone you love.
