We have all heard that love is a game. Its the game of life. However, if we play with the wrong intent, we can end up feeling the pain of emptiness and loss. Breaking hearts and having our heart broken hurts like no other pain there is. It affects your entire life. We can’t sleep, eat or have little desire to exist.
Love is the blood and oxygen of life. It fuels us and gives us the power and strength to endure even the worst of situations. For love we will forsaken our own existence by putting our lives on the line for those we love. So why would we want to play with it?
How to Play the Game of Love
Seeking to find that special someone who feels the same in their hearts is a precious experience. Not everyone is on the same page with how to love. Many are, like it says in the song …”just learning to love. Just starting to crawl.” We learn to love from infancy. How our parents and those who care for us express affection and intimacy during our formative years determines how we will interact with others as we grow. It has been shown in studies that babies who were not held during infancy can die. Those who are held more are more likely to have less issues with intimacy when as they mature.
Something as simple as a hug and a kind word of encouragement can go a long way. When we are honest with ourselves and those we care about then that expression of love can be the thing that drives them to success in life and in love.

So how do we play the game of love? We begin with living and being truthful. Trustworthiness can make or break any relationship. When we build and earn trust someone can put confidence in our actions and words. Our hearts and secrets are safe and we feel secure.
Next we understand that intimacy is the foundation of any relationship. It is all the ingredients of affection, care, nurturing, support, trust, respect and more that assures those we love will be okay with us, no matter what.
Another factor in the love game is controlling sexual energy. It is okay if you wish to freely share your sex with willing partners, but to use sex as a manipulation can backfire. Let your partners know what your desires are and if they agree, your energy exchange will be pure and delicious.
Finally, remember the golden rule of treating others as you would have them treat you. Karma is hell to pay. We know all the clinche warnings, but do we heed them? Putting out good karma returns to us. Planting seeds of disception, destruction and pain can only return to us. Love is the greatest gift we have. Win the ultimate prize and play the game to win.
