Just as we love ourselves despite the shortcomings we have, so should we love others despite the shortcomings they have.
Though it seems there are many spiteful and hateful people we must continue to love them. Not everyone that we cross paths with in this huge mass of time we call life will agree with us, or even like us for that matter, and sometimes this is our fault while other times this is purely a result of people seeing something in us that they wish could be in their selves. Nonetheless we should continue to love. There is nothing more creative than figuring out why and how to love people no matter how they treat us.
Love people without condition, love people because you know that love is the key to making the world go round, because love is the key to your heart continuing to pump healthily and without disturbance. Love people because doing so is the best way to encourage and strengthen others to get to where they dream to be, and in doing so you will love yourself to the point that you see your ultimate dreams realized as well.
