People We Love and Hurtful Things

Sometimes the people we love do things that are hurtful and that we don’t understand. The tough part is deciding whether that hurt is enough to make you feel as if you do not want that person in your life any longer. Would your life be better without that person? Does your reaction to the hurt cause more pain for that person than it does you? Loving is not simple, despite our desire for it to be so.

For you I wish that you will be so full of love that it is a shield for you against hurt. I hope that you are always able to look past people’s actions and love them because it makes you, them, and the whole world a better place.
