Love Shouldn't Be Transactional

Updated: Dec 13, 2021

There are many reasons I have heard women use to justify their own mistreatment. There were many ways I myself justified relationships that were not honoring. I was a master at twisting positive principles into reasons why I should endure more, forgive more, and tolerate unacceptable behavior.



One of the principles I twisted to justify my own self betrayal was “Love isn’t transactional”. The truth is, love ISN’T transactional. True love is not given out of obligation or indebtedness. It is simply given out of pure inspiration and DESIRE.
