We are created to be loved. So for you to live as if you were unloved is a limitation, not the other way around.
Living unloved is like clipping a bird's wings and removing its ability to fly. Not something God wants for you.
Pain has a way of clipping our wings and keeping us from being able to fly. And if it's left unresolved for a very long, you can almost forget that you were ever created to fly in the first place.
PS: I dedicated this post to my best friend who messaged me in the middle of the night two days ago. Peace be with you.
