” When another person makes you suffer, it is because he/she suffers deeply within self, and his/her suffering is spilling over. He/she does not need punishment; He/she needs HELP. _Thich Naht Hanh” Ooh but he/she can make it hard to want to help.
"love is different. love is choosing to serve someone in spite of their filthy heart. love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. love is hard. love is pain and sacrifice, it's seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship.
