SHARE SOME LOVE …
… First to … YOURSELF!!!
I have a great story about this! My mum told me, once, this story, which it is exactly about ME 🙂
Yes – as a kid, I used to receive, very often, that particular ( and stupid, let me say it ) question: << – Who do you love more? Your mum or your dad?! … >> ???!!! WOW!!! Hmmmmmm …. 😀 If there is a reason WHY I would like, sometimes, to be a kid again, is this: the kids talent to be straight sincere, to say exactly what they think, to show exactly what they feel – anger, fear, happiness, hunger, love, etc. And you can see, immediately, who they like and who they don’t … And nobody blames them for this! 🙂
As an adult, if you start to say what REALLY bothers you or what you REALLY think about something, or what are your DREAMS … you’ll find out, quickly, that some ” humans ” are not like you think they are … They’re jealous, they’re very greedy, they’re so … blind 🙂 … And, because of these, they will, ALWAYS, try to HURT you!!! 🙂
So, I was some years old, and I was facing that strange moment, to answer a stupid question. And I gave it, THE ANSWER:
<< Myself! I LOVE MYSELF! >> – I’m sure, now, it was a so-called ” solution-answer” : in my brain, and heart, I felt I have to NOT hurt somebody with my answer …
Of course, everybody around was very surprised, particularly my mum – who decided it, I’m a VERY selfish person! 🙂
But with time, reading a LOT, from Socrates ( in Plato’s ” Dialogues ” ) till today’s ” motivational ” writings and speeches, and being interested in the Human Nature, I discovered that loving YOURSELF is the most important thing: if you understand yourself, if you accept yourself and, finally, LOVE yourself, that’s ALL you need to can UNDERSTAND and LOVE … The Others!
Conclusion?! … SHARE some LOVE to yourself, first … And after, IF YOU’RE STRONG ENOUGH … LOVE THE OTHERS!!!!! 🙂
