Here is my quote of the week on love, in light of my thoughts on the separation of John & Kate and how it will adversely affect the 8 kids they have. It’s also a good time to talk about love as one of the best love song writers of all times (Michael Jackson) has died.

From chapter 6 of my book:

“I’m always on my mind. I have been for a long time. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been thinking about myself. Most of us do…
    …To make matters worse, our culture’s literature, movies, poems, songs, and the like constantly reinforce our self-love. “Love yourself,” they insist. “Make sure you’re happy.” But happily ever after isn’t real life. Surrendering to that whimsical emotion is reckless and selfish. What do I do when the rush wears off (because it always does)? Do I set out to conquer a new love and ignore the consequences of this pattern?
    So, I’ve had to unlearn and then relearn what it means to love. And it hasn’t been easy.”
