I’m fortunate enough to have many people in my life to love. I have my family to love. That goes without saying. But there are so many people I’ve met over the years who have worked their way into my heart as well. It seems love is an easy emotion for me to have.
What can I say… It feels good to have warm fuzzies about people when you think of them. I’d say the only down side to loving people is seeing the best in sometimes the worst people.
Some say there are people I’ve loved who haven’t necessarily earned my love or deserved it. They’ve laid out pretty convincing cases why I shouldn’t love someone and I’ll admit… They’re usually right. Unfortunately, it doesn’t change the way my stupid heart loves to love.
There is one thing I’ve learned from those who loved me enough to give me doses of harsh reality from time to time and it’s this:
Even though I might not be able to change the way I feel, I can change the way I allow people I love to make me feel. It’s my way of having it both ways. Having my cake and eating it too as it were.
There’s no sense in taking any love out of the world right? 😉
