Why loving is difficult

It’s difficult to love people who are not fluffy teddy bear huggable. They wish you no good with their glance. They’re cold.

It’s also difficult to love people when you’re consumed in your own life story, so consumed that you don’t care to learn about someone else’s story.

Like you, everyone is facing a challenge right now. Like you, everyone struggles to hold on to their hope. 

At the end of the day, isn’t love what heals this world of suffering?

Isn’t love what causes you to do things that you don’t particularly like for the people that you care about?

If loving is difficult, loving is difficult because there’s a force of evil that succeeds in its job of keeping people apart—through hate, through fear, through ego.

“Your every act should be done with love.”

1 Corinthians 16:14
