Have you ever felt alone in your own home? Does it seem like your loved ones don’t care? Do they walk out the door without saying goodbye? Do they shut down when you try to communicate? Do you argue more than you laugh together?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, the easy road to travel on is to start getting angry or to begin feeling sorry for oneself. But what if there’s a better way?
What if the ones we are closest to, the ones that are hardest to love, are feeling the exact same way that we are? Insignificant. Unloved. Unlovable. What if it’s not about us, but it’s about how we make our loved ones feel? What if we weren’t meant to be served, but to serve?
One of the sweetest friends I know told me a story about some advice she was given. It was suggested to her to give more…even though she was already giving all she had. Then the most amazing thing began happening. The more she gave, the easier it became. I took that advice to heart and let me tell you, she was RIGHT!
I don’t have all the answers and I have tons of growing to do, but hear me when I say this: We were made to love and be loved.
And it starts with you and me.
(If you are interested in where my strength comes from, it’s from the One who made me. My philosophy of love can be found by reading 1st Corinthians chapter 13).
