Unnatural Love

“Love isn’t something natural. Rather it requires discipline, concentration, patience, faith, and the overcoming of narcissism. It isn’t a feeling, it is a practice.” – Eric Fromm

Love is not easy if it is lasting.  It takes work to get through the inevitable rough patches.  It takes sacrifice, killing off the worst pieces of ourselves for the greater good.  It takes effort, especially when we are at our weakest.

Love is the highest, most difficult calling to your soul.
