“What can I value about someone I find hard to love?”
That is a tough question. I’ll be honest. I thought and I thought and came up with nothing.
So I then thought of someone that was hard to love. That part was easy. What to value about them? That took some time. But I came up with things.
I listed these things about several people that I find hard to love:
- they love their children
- they never waver in their believes
- they have a determined spirit
- they are dedicated to their work
- they are loyal
They might be hard to love, but they are not without value. That is something we all seem to forget over time. We (and I mean “I” also) need to look beyond what we see and deliberately seek out what we can value in that person. It makes the love come so much easier.
