With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, Oprah Winfrey shares a special love lesson in a candid interview airing tonight on the premier of Piers Morgan Tonight.
Piers Morgan debuts on CNN at 9 pm ET with excerpts from the former Simon Cowell sidekick’s two-hour chat with Oprah Winfrey. As Morgan takes on Larry King’s 25-year time-slot, the Cable News Network is banking that a candid conversation with one of the world’s most admired celebrities will inspire viewers to tune-in.
On tonight’s show, Oprah Winfrey, known worldwide as “Oprah,” talks about the love lesson she learned when she faced the betrayal of a family member who sold her out to the tabloids for $20,000.
“I’m really sorry. You don’t deserve this,” Oprah recalled her longtime partner, Stedman Graham, saying at the time.
Oprah’s Love Lesson
“When someone is willing to stand in and stand up for you,” Oprah said, “that’s what love is.”
Four weeks before Valentine’s Day, Oprah’s love lesson is worth thinking about. For a woman who has everything, standing in and standing up with words of affirmation at that moment in her life left her feeling deeply cared about. At another time, it may have been a special gift, gentle massage, helping her solve a problem, complete a task, or simply spending quality time together.
Oprah’s love lesson is that what makes someone feel loved or cared about depends on the unique challenges, resources, and values most important at a given moment in time.
As you prepare for Valentine’s Day, that’s a valuable lesson to take to heart. Being able to ask loved ones what makes them feel cared about and special at this moment in their life – and doing it – will help you enjoy a celebration you’ll both want to remember.
