To Be Loved

I like not only to be loved, but to be told I am loved.

George Eliot 

The greatest pleasure that we can have in life is to love someone and for someone to love you. Many people look for things that they think will give them love but they never find it. Why is true love so hard to find? Why are so many people so self-centered? Is unconditional love possible? I believe that a lot of people never accept their partner the way they are! We have this torture of wanting to change that person into the ideal of what we think they should be. Why? Should we not embrace and celebrate the differences that each person brings to the relationship? It seems to me that we have many selfish people.

The Bible teaches that we should love our neighbor as ourselves. It also teaches that we should serve one another and regard people as better than ourselves. Giving is a big part of loving people and showing that you have a very good heart. Can we really find true love that lasts a lifetime? I have not been able to, and I am still keeping hope that there is a person out there for me, even tho, I enjoy my solitude and quiet moments. Where can you have the most peace, married, or single?  We all want peace and contentment in our lives and for some, a committed relationship gives that person peace and they can be very giving, for others, being single gives them great peace, and they can give to friends, family, and the less fortunate. I hope love finds you!
