Do you think it’s possible to love too hard? I think this often but I’ve never asked anyone. I wonder if I love too hard because people disappointment me. I know we weren’t all raised the same, I know we aren’t all Christians but…common sense.
In this post, I told you a few interesting things about me, one of which, my great aunt raised me. She loved me like her own. Taught and showed me how to be respectful, considerate, loving, take care of myself, be a strong woman. Sadly, she passed in 2015. While growing up into the woman that I am today, I’ve always tried to put myself in some else’s shoes and try to understand, WHY?
I’m a loyal friend. A loyal family member. If you need me, I’m there. If I can surprise you and do something special for you, it’s done. I will go out of my way to show you how much I care because I really care. It’s not an act. I do all these things out the goodness of my heart so when someone hurts me or isn’t considerate I wonder, “What Is Going On??” Everyone has their issues and sometimes they take them out on the person/people who love them the most. Just being human I guess.
One day while on our way to a kids’ birthday party I decided to ask my husband, “Do you think I love too hard?” He said, (I’m paraphrasing here) “No. You have a big heart. You care a lot about people. You can’t help it. lol” He always makes me laugh when I’m thinking too deep and about to make myself sad. Guess that’s another reason why I love that guy!
So, do I think it’s possible to love too hard? No. Experiences have made us think and act the way we do. Loving “too hard” makes me happy because I’m making others happy. I want to be a blessing to others so I’m going to keep on loving hard. As my husband said, I can’t help it!
Over the years I’ve come to realize that the ONLY person who will NEVER disappoint me is GOD! With Him in my life, Everything will be JUST fine!
Oh, Yolonda! I’m so happy that you love so hard! I need to love on you even harder. Thank you for loving so much and having the biggest heart I know. I can’t tell you enough how blessed I feel to have you in my life. You truly do go out of your way to make people feel special. Thank you!
Awwww, Hannah! You are a blessing to me as well! I love to see you smile! Glad I am able to be there for you. That’s what friends are for! (In Shere Khan’s voice. Jungle Book reference. lol)
