I believe at the end of the day all people really want is to know someone sees them, loves them, accepts them, and will stay by their side through the joy and the agony of being alive.
People want to love and be loved. They want to know that in this gigantic world they have a safe place. They want to be missed, needed, wanted, and chosen.
We were made from love, to love, and be loved. We were created for relationships, community, and to find our homes in each other.
We need to forget everything else and remember, we were created for one another and life isn’t meant to be lived alone. We need to treat each other with more tenderness. We need to see that every single person is valuable and precious. We need to stop being crappy to one another.
If we could only see that everyone has a story that deserves to be heard. Everyone has a book of life that they want to share with people. Everyone is starving for love and to feel visible. Instead of being so greedy, maybe today we could love each other more.
Maybe we could take the time to listen to the unspoken hopes we each carry. Maybe today could be the day when you made someone smile again. Maybe today could be the day when you decided hate is too much of a burden to carry, and choose love instead.
