Let love be without hypocrisy…
Saying “I love you” has become too easy.
Using the “L”, word has become hypocritical.
We use the word when we should be saying “I like”, “I want”, “I lust” you. Saying you love someone carries a lot of weight and responsibility with it.
Saying you love someone should be used wisely and sparingly.
Loving someone is not a fling or a one night stand. Loving someone comes with a commitment and a lifetime of responsibility. You may love guacamole, or Cleveland, or the Dodgers, but that isn’t the same as loving a live, breathing, human being. The guacamole isn’t going to love you back.
Real human love involves pleasures and pains, tears and triumphs.
If you’re not ready for the roller coaster of emotions that real love involves then don’t use the word. Don’t be a hypocrite.
To say “I love you” is an easy thing. To really mean it takes time and work.
There is a cost when you say you love someone be prepared to pay or don’t use the word.
Don’t be hypocritical.
Make a list of those you love. Then Mark off those on the list that you love with a real love. Be honest with your feelings and emotions.
Are there people that should be on list and aren’t? Why or why not? What can you do to get them on the list of people you love?
