Driving a truck and being away from loved ones may put a damper on the ebb and flow of life that others seem to take for granted. Although everyone from time to time may struggle with this, it seems that over-the-road-drivers may encounter this more often. Absence from friends and family requires putting more effort into communication and connection.
Healthy love, it is so important that it can change our lives and the lives of others. Everyone wants to love and be loved, yet so many struggle with this endeavor.
Some people may or may not realize that there is a fine line between healthy and unhealthy self-love. There are those who are obviously in love with themselves to the point of loving or caring about no one else. Then there are those who are completely selfless and do so much for others that they neglect themselves.
The most beneficial direction for the sake of everyone is loving ourselves with our heart in the right place. We have to nurture ourselves so that we are capable of doing for others with the intention of the highest good of all. Then we will be able to give of ourselves and be a benefit to others.
If we all made it a point to examine self for the good of others, where would we be as a society?
Truckers, be that shining heart out there making a difference on the road. It is contagious!
Thank you for what you do.
