Someone said, “I feel unloved.”

The feeling of being unloved arises from the truth. There are so many who didn’t love us — a parent, a relative, a teacher, a minister, a neighbor, a school mate, a stranger.  And truth be told, there are many who don’t love us even now.

There is one solution, one cure to feeling unloved — to love. Love the sunshine, love a young leaf, love a friend, love an animal, love a random person, love the taste of something, love a color, love a book, love a song, love your lunch.

Build your repertoire of things loved. Every day for two weeks — 14 days, 14 things — add one item to your repertoire. An aroma, a piece of clothing (I LOVE my socks), a child, your skin, your eyes, your hair, your muscles, your intelligence. Keep a list, a love list. Add to it every day. Look at the list before you go to sleep and again when you awake. Savor the feeling of loving each item on your list.

Let me know how it goes.
