The Hippocratic Oath of Love

You know the deal, doctors are supposed to live by this oath: “Do no harm.” 

The rest of us have a similar agreement, we call it the Golden Rule:  “Do not do unto others what you would not want done to you.” 

Here’s my new oath for Love: “I never want my love to make anyone’s life smaller.”

Like the other oaths, it sounds simple, but is stunningly challenging to put into practice.
