Click book title for more information
When your Nerve Force is at a low ebb, you are inclined to develop an inferiority complex and can easily lose your self-confidence. As you start to feel inferior you begin to fear that someone else may take away anyone who is near and dear to you. There is just one way to defeat this gnawing fear. You must build your Nerve Force so high by natural living that any feeling of inferiority will leave you forever! Jealousy is something all humans must fight. We can love someone, but that does not mean that we own that person. As you build your Nerve Force, you will see the wisdom of letting every person live their own personal life.
Build your Nerve Force so high that you will be above jealousy and the fear of losing your loved ones. Love is the strongest force in the world! Give love and you will be loved in return. Remember that you can never lose one whom you love and who loves you. If you do lose your beloved to someone else, you may be sure that he or she was not really your beloved in the first place! You must remember that there are plenty of fickle people in the world and there is no use crying over their loss. In such cases, one might do well to remember this wise classic saying:
‘Tis better to have loved and lost
than never to have loved at all –
or better still, its paraphrase:
’Tis better to have loved and lost – Lots better!
The fear of being alone and unloved – although it haunts many people – is a groundless one. There is always someone who needs your love and who needs to love you. “Seek and ye shall find.” All you need is the confidence that comes with health and a powerful Nerve Force!
