Came across a lovely quote from 'God's in every man' by Jean Shinoda Bolen:
'It's been my impression that we alll come into the world as children who want love, and if we can't get love, we settle for power'
Its a quote that is as true for women as for men although maybe, just maybe, us chaps have a harder time recognising (or is that admitting?) these things.
For me, the key difference between the two is that power is over another while love is with another...
Sit with that for a while, and maybe ask yourself the questions, without judgement or self criticism 'Why did I settle for less than love?', 'Why would I settle for less?' and 'Can I give myself permission and allow myself to love?'.
