True love is unconditional and selfless. It loves people right where they’re at. If they need help, love them by helping them. If they need acceptance, love them by accepting them. True love loves people beyond their mistakes, shortcomings, or outward appearance. It considers what they are going through, what they might be worried about, what they are feeling, and how you can help them.
True love is brought forth by selfless acts of love between people. Every day we have many opportunities to express our love to others. Here are some examples:
Be empathetic. Smile at everyone you see. Call your parents and thank them for everything they’ve done for you. Volunteer at a homeless shelter. Don’t embarrass others. Do something for someone without expecting anything at all in return.
There are many ways to put love into action. So reach out, love generously and unconditionally, and love your neighbor as yourself.
