Receiving love is a numbers game.
We all want the fullest love possible from those we care about: 100%. But people are flawed and have their own burdens and emotional blocks to grapple with. Sometimes, they can only give us 70% of the love that we want. Or 40%. Or even 10%, if their own burdens are too heavy.
When we shut ourselves off to the love of others, saying no, this is not the 100% I wanted, then we are closing off our receiving channels in all abundance too. If someone is only able to give you 80% or 50% of the love you want, do not turn them away and reject their love, incomplete as it may be.
Accept that they are flawed, as we all are, and receive whatever they are able to give — never compromising your own emotional health and stability in doing so. When you are able to accept gifts that are, to your perception, incomplete, then you open yourself up to all kinds of abundance from the universe, because this telegraphs a clear signal that you are fully open to receiving all good things, whether in little or large amounts.
When you are flexible, like the bamboo, in how and what you receive from people and the universe, then you give yourself permission to receive, abundantly.
