Love can be a complicated subject yet it is a very simple subject. One only needs to understand how it works and they will realize that it is not as complicated as they once thought. Human beings can be equated to a computer to some extent. Typically, with a computer, it operates on a GIGO principle that states, ‘Garbage in, Garbage out.’ Human beings also work with a principle that is almost similar to this. With humans, what you give is what you receive, and that is how love works.
Do Not Wait to Receive Love if You Have Not Given Love
People will always respond to you the way you treat and respond to them. It is a principle at work in humans that works automatically. Therefore, to get love, you only have to show love to others. No one can resist love because love is powerful.
When you show love to others, they will show love to you without limitations because love will attract love. At some point, while growing up, there were some of my classmates that did not like me because they always thought I was proud and selective. On the other hand, I did not know them that well, and I was shy to talk to people I did not know well enough. When I told my parents about these girls, they told me that I should start talking to them and showing them love. When I started doing this, everything changed, and we became best of friends. From this experience, I learned that you get love by giving love.
Love Gives You the Ability to Control How Others Feel About You
Love is a weapon that can soften even the hardest hearts. It is a language that everyone understands, and no one can resist. It is a language that is understood with the heart. Every time you show love to others, it gets to their heart and softens their heart towards you. You will get love by showing love everywhere you go. Never wait for someone to make assumptions about you and your character when you can show them love and give them a chance to see who you are.
Invest Love in Others
When you invest love in others, whether, by actions or words of kindness, you will change their lives. The love they get is what they will use to love you back with no doubt. Paul McCartney said,
“In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”
If you want to live a life that is surrounded by love, you have to invest love in others. As you invest in them, they will also invest in people within their sphere of contact. Those people will influence other people, and in no time the world will be full of people who show love to others. You will meet them at some point, and you will experience the fruits of your efforts.
We are living in a world where we get love by giving love. However, this does not mean that we are trading love for love. When you show love to others, do it genuinely, and you will attract love from them automatically. When you give genuine love, it seizes to be a trade because you are doing it from within since it is your nature to love. Getting love back is just the byproduct of your efforts, and you should enjoy it.
