Big mindWhen you are young, you may want several love experiences. But as time goes on, you will realize that if you really love someone, the whole life will not be enough. You need time to know, to forgive and to love.All this needs a very big mind.

My comments:

Big mind.

In other words, a broad mind, as against a small mind.

When we first fall in love, we are young and naive and all that, we want the object of our love to love us back.

Love us back or else.

This is because we have a small mind. Small, petty and selfish. You can imagine such a person may not be kind and generous in giving out love, and will hold a grudge if his love is not reciprocated.

See what I mean?

If not, that’s no problem either. Live some and learn some – all you need to do is to live, love, and learn some more.

Which you will, of course.

And that means all is well.
