Don’t give up on love

“Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance” – 1 Corinthians 13:7

To a teenager, a failed relationship literally feels like the E.N.D.! You do not want anyone to tell you that you are going to be okay or that you deserve better, in some cases you don’t even think better exists. You play the blame game. You blame him, you blame her, you blame them and you blame yourself. What you fail to remember at this point is that you always have yourself even though it feels like you have lost everything.

Many a time when these relationships fail we proclaim to be through with love and  done with relationships. What we actually mean by this is that we are not keen or prepared to set our hearts available, or to expose it to the pain that we would have to deal with, should another relationship fail. This does not mean that we don’t want to be loved.

Here is the deal (Cliché alert!!), only open hearts receive love. In order to ccompletely love and be loved, you have to open up your heart to love. As dangerous as it may seem, you have to make yourself available to love. Of course its risky in the sense that you mmight get your heart broken again, but on the other hand, this time it could be real. You could find true happiness!

Just don’t give up on love. God is love so giving up on love is ultimately giving up on God. Think about it…
