Love Needed Here

I needed love before I even knew what it was. Now that I understand something about it, I need it even more. By loving myself, I not only take care of my own needs, but I lay a foundation for loving others. By loving others, I learn to treat myself well. ~ Family Groups, Al-Anon.

Love is the answer…
such a simple answer…
such a profound answer.
Love is the answer
to every bit of pain throughout the world.
Love is the way to heal hatred,
jealousy, depression, resentment,
and the source of it all…fear.
Love is the response I will give
to violence, to bitterness, to life.
As I give love I receive it back
and if we all live love we will love life
and all mankind.
