LOVE CHANGES EVERYTHING BUT LOVING PEOPLE ISN’T EASY

Do you agree, love changes everything, but loving people isn’t easy?  

And just how do you love someone who is hard to love?  

Hey, does it make a difference which generation you’re talking about?  Does culture really change that much?  

Well this could be TMI or TMQ  (too much info or too many questions) at this point.

So let’s investigate….

First Train of Thought:  

Everyone has come across =

  • less than truthful,

  • the money hungry,

  • the back stabbers or

  • vow-breakers.

  • Either, we meet them casually;

  • develop a friendship;

  • see them at work;

  • or marry them.

These type people seem to cross our life-path sooner or later.  Or is it we who are crossing their life-path?  Either way we cross and they bring good or sometimes bad to us.

Below Mr. Fulghum, a prominent writer who wrote, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten (1988), which stayed on the New York Times bestseller lists for nearly two years. Throughout the collection, subtitled “Uncommon Thoughts on Common Things”, Fulghum expounds his down-home philosophy of seeing the world through the eyes of a child said it all.  

But Mr. Fulghum used deductive strategy while comparing a boat-load of previous, knowing life experiences to come up with this statement: 

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge.  That myth is more potent than history.  That dreams are more powerful than facts.  That hope always triumphs over experience.  That laughter is the only cure for grief.  And I believe that love is stronger than death.”  – Robert Fulghum

Do you agree with Mr. Fulghum?  

Well, let’s keep investigating …..

Second Train of Thought = Think of your family

Other people believe that love changes everything, but loving people isn’t easy ; especially and including people who are in their family.  

What about your family?  One definition of family is:

989028849

Some part of that definition also says, that people who make up your family are living, loving and laughing their way through the trials and griefs from this world.

The last thing to remember when you’re trying to know how to love the “ones in your family” who are hard to love:

LOVE CHANGES EVERYTHING BUT LOVING PEOPLE ISN’T EASY

Third Train of Thought: Where does the loving start? It starts with you.

What you are thinking , what you are feeling and what you are speaking will prove your love for yourself and your love for others.” – Patricia (me)

 It doesn’t matter who are the other people.  It should be so ingrained within your heart “to love your neighbor” religiously, or morally,  politically or otherwise.   

There are many different people, but your love should always be the same, if not growing stronger.  

 Let’s further investigate using this video by Brian Tracey.

[Brian Tracy is one of America’s leading authorities on the development of human potential and personal effectiveness.]

 Even if others who are crossing your life-path are:

  • looked up to, or looked down on

  • church leader, or a street walker

  • hosting the party or crashing it

  • the lender or the borrower

  • and so forth and so on.. for as many titles, categories, levels or areas you can think .

Like I said above, your love should always be unconditionally the same, if not growing even stronger.
