They say not everyone will like you or tolerate your personality. They say some will dislike you without any tangible reasons. Finally, they say genuine love; indeed, it is difficult to find.
Well, I agree to some, but I will avoid acknowledging the latter because my understanding of love is a bit different.
My honest opinion is love MUST be you first before you can partake with others. Many cannot show affection to others because they lack that affection. Life is about 50-50, which means what you are is what you will give out. You cannot give to others what you don’t have. Most perpetrators of domestic violence are themselves victims of unwanted children whereby they grew up without anyone ever telling them they are loved, or they grew up witnessing the spiral of abuse within their extended family.
People who pretend to love others suffer from within themselves. It is all about personality. We grew up becoming how we are raised. This is why the usual saying that children born within wealthy circles tend to stay within that circle while those born in abject or unstable environment tends to bend towards that similar environment.
It is similar to love. If you don’t have it naturally within you, you will continue to live in denial of experiencing true love.
