Love Is Hard, Love Is Easy

What's the hardest thing to do in the world?


Love is the hardest thing to do.

But it's also the easiest.

We make it harder than it needs to be, with our constant feelings that we don't deserve to be loved. We reject those who love us as fools, because we know we're unlovable. So they must be deluded to love us.

But that's wrong.

We are all loved whether or not we deserve it.

That's what unconditional means.

Your task is to overcome those feelings that you don't deserve love, feelings which you hold up like armor, to keep everyone out, to protect yourself. Or so you believe. But all you're doing is preventing love from getting in, by driving it away because you imagine you don't deserve it. Then it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy: you isolate yourself, then call yourself alienated.

It doesn't matter. Nevertheless you are loved.

Deal with it.
