24 phrases to protect our emotional independence

Last update: 24 March, 2022

We must learn to enjoy ourselves, when we are alone and in company, and avoid that our happiness depends on others. The only love that can be imposed is that of oneself. We must suppress our insecurities, prevent them from enslaving us and choose to be the masters of ourselves and our lives.

Love and addiction are adversaries; if they coexist, they destroy us. If this happens, even if the relationship continues, love darkens and submits to addiction.

We need to change the need to preference, which is much healthier. 

We can love and adore our partner, but we must maintain good self-esteem to grow personally, to make our maturity reach its maximum splendor.

It is complicated to understand, but love must not be confused with falling in love. Love is not anguish, nor butterflies in the stomach, nor giving oneself totally to one's partner. To love does not mean to drown, to submit; love is not sacrifice.

Love is quiet and it is not obsessive, it is moderate, love is reason, desire, friendship, attention and balance. There is no terror in love and therefore it is worth changing. Below we introduce you 24 phrases that remind us of the importance of protecting our emotional independence:
