Many people, including me, love the song, “Make You Feel My Love.” Bob Dylan wrote and recorded it. Garth Brooks, Adele, and others have recorded their own versions. And it helped Kevin Skinner win a million dollars on season four (2009) of “America’s Got Talent.” Although the rest of the lyrics have some measure of truth, the title and chorus do not.
You cannot “make” another person feel your love. They must be receptive to it and be capable of giving and receiving love. Otherwise, what they will feel is indifference, disbelief, an ego boost, or just some uplifting emotions. The indifference comes from them not being into you (attracted & falling or in love). The disbelief comes from a lack of self-love or even self-hate. The ego boost comes from low self-esteem. The feel-good emotions come from a self-serving disposition.
A person who is able to give and receive love has self-love, self-confidence, and no self-centeredness. The lack of selfishness is a strong indicator of healthy love. You know you’re truly in love when you have greater concern about doing things that bring your partner joy and pleasure than you are about them doing these things for you.
You cannot force or manipulate love. These tactics never produce a healthy, strong, and lasting relationship. True love can only happen in a relaxed, unhurried, and completely honest environment.
Focus on being your own best friend. Then concentrate on just being yourself with the person you love. If you are a good match and the timing and circumstances are right, they will feel your love and you will feel theirs. 🙂
