I’m saying this really gently and sadly, but I can’t help thinking that the love that many people describe to me sounds a lot more like ownership than liberation. Love is the most powerful force on the planet and it does not create fear-based thinking like jealousy and control. Those are forces that come from a perceived ownership and control of another human being.

On an even sadder note, love is not conditional. It is not something that you can just switch off. And if your love is gone now that you have broken up, it simply was not love.
