    This sounds harsh. Disagree.

  • C W

    I don't think is true. The measure of your life is how much love you give to others, not how much you receive. There are very good people in the world who do not receive much love, and there are many superficial people who are adored

    Judged? I don't agree with this Real Simple.

  • Lindsey Middleton

    Huh? This literally makes no sense.

  • Chelsea Glenn McCallum

    Agreed, showing love would include good manners.

  • Emily Handler

    Love is a concept, whereas manners are an action.

  • Caron Slimak

    I think the world needs people who posses both. You can have impeccable manners but be a cold hearted biggot. T

  • Melanie Marino Spindler

    Love is active, not a feeling or a concept. If you have love for one another, you treat people with respect-- an active thing. If you're mannerly without anything behind it, it's disingenuous and people know it. Like when someone fake smiles at you in passing. It's hollow. "The church" is made of people...and I'm pretty sure Scripture speaks about mutual I can't separate "the church" or me/hubby teaching manners or respect of others to my kids...

  • Gretchen Piofcyk

    Love is not just a concept. It is also an action....hence the use of it as a verb.
