Is loving somebody more than you love yourself… a safe thing to do? Free to go and free to come, you’ll be always there for him or her?
Of course not. There is risk involved.
“Think not that you can guide the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, shall guide your course.” – Kahlil Gibran
But if you don’t love other people more than you love yourself, then what is the purpose of love?
PS. The safe way is to not bother with more (or less). Just love everything the most you can. In this way, whenever you say, “I love you the most,” you’re speaking the truth without the need to think twice.
