    Why I Love and Care the Way I Do

    Its God's command to love thy neighbor as yourself. Well I know that doesn't mean I have to be there best friend. But I do love myself, because I learned that living an abundant life with the Lord, He taught me to love myself, therefore, I love all.  xoxo!

    They lie all the time. They say i am unable to love others until I love myself. Tell me, if that were true, why does the sadness of others hurt me?
