Loving your significant other, family and friends is important. It is not the only love that should be deeply considered in life. It is critical to love everyone. Okay, so loving people is hard, am I right? If you really think about it though, loving people is such an easy thing to do and brings some incredible happiness along with it.
When you love instead of hate you are able to let go of pain and resentment more easily that might be holding you back from truly moving forward in life. Someone may have really hurt you or completely broke your heart. Why not love them anyway? Love them because they too have been hurt and their heart will surely break in the future. Love people because loving takes less effort, brings more joy and expresses who you are. It isn’t about liking everyone you meet or staying in close connections with everyone you have completely been in love with. Love is caring and thoroughly acknowledges the existence of other people.
Everyone has their battle wounds. Everyone goes through pain. Everyone has a unique story to tell. So, love them for that. Love people because they are someone special to someone else. They are someone else’s reason to smile. Let the bitterness diminish and the love overflow.
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.”
