Don’t build a dam around it, let the rivers run wild and they will always find their way back to the ocean, a little wiser, a little more compassionate, after tenderly shaping mountains into valleys. Eventually it is the river that remains the same and the harsh rock that is forever altered.
The only thing you need to do to feel loved is to let yourself feel loved, not by anyone, but in and of its own, and that is the only love that can be truly unconditional. Lock this knowledge in your heart and it will be a perpetually shining light even in the thickest darkness, like a seed covered in winter snow it will be your hope when the world is cold reminding you of who you are and of your truest nature.
Love does not need a giver or receiver to exist, nor does it need to be manifested. Love is a gift to humanity, but it does not need humanity. Love needs nothing but itself, it gives of itself to itself, yet it does not need to be received for there is no space in which it does not exist.
Your worthiness of love has nothing to do with how many people love you or how deeply loved you are. It exists entirely on its own, unneeding of anyone to acknowledge it, including yourself. It can not diminish nor increase because it is immeasurable in its immaterial infinity.
