Let's Talk Love: Love Is Hard

in love •  2 years ago

“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Life is far too short for hold a grudge against people.

I’ve met some pretty bitter people in my time. People that have held themselves and others back because they have hatred in them.

I don’t know why these people have hatred in them. I don’t know the hardships they had to endure, but I know that it’s possible to recover from anything and become happy and love the world.

That’s of course if you want the world to love you.

Yes life can be hard. At times it actually feels like you get punished for being honest and true to your feelings. You do what you think is best for others and you get punished.

All you have to do is refer to the Paradoxical Commandments for further proof:

“People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.”

That my fellow Steemers, is only a small bite size of an epic piece of writing by Kent M Keith.

Loving anything is hard.

But if there is one thing I can guarantee you one thing.

Life will reward your love.

So guys!

Keep spreading the love you have in your hearts.

Ultimately you’ll be blessed with love in return.

Sorry for the tangent.

Another post tomorrow!

Deuces (:

"...faith, hope and love. The greatest of these is love." Any ideas on what book this quote is from?

·

I'm not too sure.

I'm gonna take a guess and say the Bible. I feel like I've heard a religious friend of mine say that before.

Yup. The Bible. My first born daughter is named Faith. LOL We thought about naming the second daughter Hope, but then decided if we had a third we wouldn't really want to name her Love! hahaha
