You are being too hard on yourself, you are being too hard on love. Will you give love a chance? Sometimes, we are quick to say, “I am done with love; love has hurt me, love has deceived me, love has failed me…”
But that is NOT so. Love has never hurt anyone; people hurt people, but not so with love. Don’t give up on love because of the hardness of people’s hearts; don’t blame love for people’s callousness.
At the end of it all, you have to WANT what you NEED; and love is what you need, what we all need.
The late doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. said it perfectly, “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
The good news is when you have love, it is not yours alone; but hatred is heavy and it’s rarely shared…
So, go ahead and forgive yourself if you have given up on love. Love has always been there, all along, all for you. You just have to be opened for love, be opened to love.
