Loving others for the wonderful qualities they possess rather than how they make you feel can ensure that your emotions are enduring ones. It's easy to feel affection for those who have cared for you, praised you, or given you gifts. Love that lasts, however, will always be the result of your appreciation for your loved ones' real qualities. When you love others for who they truly are, your feelings for them do not waver when they show their faults or when they act less than lovingly toward you. Their imperfections are a part of who they are, and you are able to love them through good times and bad. Choose to love others today for who they are, and you will strengthen your bonds and create authentic relationships.
