Inevitably, when you are in a “love” relationship with a man, a friend, your child, there will come a time when you say, “I love you, BUT…right now… (you fill in the blank)! But right now…you’re on my nerves…I’m angry about what you said, I’m tired of you lying to me…and on and on. Truth be told, love does not mean relationships will be easy. In fact, sometimes, it means that you will have to dig deeper, be the bigger person, love harder or just resolve to love in spite of what may be happening at the present moment.

Can I get an Amen from somebody who’s said, “I Love You…BUT!” Lol!

So, what do you do when you think you just can’t continue to love? You continue to love! I know you don’t want to hear that! You want the 10 step guarantee. The 2 key things you must do right now. Or, maybe you’d prefer the Wiki How! LOL! Ladies, love is an amazingly strong, resilient, incredible commodity. It can go the distance. It can keep believing way past when you’ve given up. Love has patience you wouldn’t believe! Love can endure the WORST of mankind—the lies, the cheating, the anger—and it doesn’t go away or cease. Love is an amazing gift we’ve been given that works when we work it. Love has to be extended. It has to be given even when we don’t want to give it. Love, contrary to your favorite love song, is so much more than a feeling. It’s a choice. That can be chosen time and time and time and time again.

When I’ve continued to choose to love even when they didn’t deserve it, I’ve never been disappointed. I didn’t say I’ve never been hurt. I said, I wasn’t disappointed because love doesn’t disappoint. It’s stronger than any hurt or anger or frustration I can experience. Today ladies give love a try, even if you don’t feel like it. You’ll eventually be glad that you did!
