If you want your loved ones to be happy, you must learn to understand their sufferings and their aspirations. When you understand, you will know how to relieve their suffering and how to help them fulfill their aspirations. That is true love. If you only want your loved ones to follow your own ideas and you remain ignorant of their needs, it is not truly loving. It is only a desire to possess another and attempt to fulfill your own needs, which cannot be fulfilled in that way. —Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #loving# #love #lovedones #suffering #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotes
