Love is a beautiful thing. In my language, they say “love is a temptation”. Don’t ask me, I still can’t relate but for those who believe love comes with ups and downs, I still can’t relate. Life has ups and downs but not love except we do certain things that trigger change in behavior which affects love’s long-suffering. Otherwise, love is love, constant and even grows if nurtured.
I can’t imagine a love that doesn’t care or manifests or gives most especially. The capacity in which these things are expressed is what qualifies a person as a lover, not by mere words of “I love you”. … More If you were the opposite sex, would you be happy to be loved the way you are loving your partner now?
Do to others what you want done to you
So what if people don’t reciprocate what you do to them, what do you do?
In a marriage, when you have vowed to love in good times and in bad, and your spouse does not reciprocate your love, what do you do?
In a relationship, or not, when you give, do you expect your gift will return to you from same person? If it doesn’t, what do you do?
If all you know how to do is to be nice and considerate towards people, if you don’t get same reaction from people in return, what do you do?
We are not God. Only God can love, give and be faithful unconditionally.
Since we strive to be perfect just as He is perfect, would it be too much to be unconditionally towards one another?
Otherwise, if you give me, love me or are nice to me only because you expect me to do same, pardon me if I don’t reciprocate. I might not have the onus on me at that point to be what you want me to be.
I thought I should share this food for thought.
Good morning all.
