What is greater than love- True Friendship! Love is selective, and
friendship is based on openness, and wanting the best, for your friends,
and helping, without thought, to what is gained, as in love, where
lovers act, to what they want the other person, to see within them.
Love can be beautiful, but if it is based on ownership, then it's
limiting, and does not build beauty, but restrictive dilemmas, which
show up, as being, what you're not, to not upset- your loved one.
Love is built on action and consequences, gains and losses, and
demands and expectations.
Friendship is built upon- simply enjoying being with another or others,
without putting limits, on that friendship; if a friend likes that
which you don't, then when he/she/it is doing this, you're doing
other things, but it doesn't threaten your friendship.
Love puts scales on what is done between two or more people, and one
can take offense easily, if the other isn't doing what he/she/it wants,
or if they don't do, as the lover wants.
Friendship, is- if you don't want to do something with a friend, you
simply say no; it's your right to say no; it isn't a power
struggle with your friend, but simply your right, to make your own
decisions, as it is the right of your friend, to say no to you, also.
Love is within friendship, but it isn't demanding love, but simply
love of a friend, who you enjoy and like being with, who helps you
grow, and allows you both, to be the best- you can be.
When love breaks up, it can be a vicious thing, but when friends go
their separate ways, it's because, they have grown in different
directions, and there's no legal shenigans involved, usually. Each does what is
best for them, and supports the decision to move on, in the other ,and
