Lack of love: The importance of love in our livesThursday, May 15, 2008 By Dalia Gonzalez
Love is one of the most important qualities of life. Love helps us cultivate good qualities like patience, goodness, kindness, tolerance, and empathy. With love, we can be better people, even though some people have a tendency to do bad things. A life without love is sad, lonely, and can be a cause of many problems that flood the world. The hate between countries, delinquency, selfishness, and corruption are very frequent today. People learn to tolerate injustice and become more unfeeling. Hopelessness floods the heart of people who want peace, and justice. Unfortunately, there are ambitious people who kill, steal, and lie. People don’t have fear to harm others. These people think that love is antiquated and a weakness. Love can also be an obstacle for their objectives. For example, people can be ruthless or egotistical and do everything without thinking of others, and sometimes people do this unconsciously. Also, there are companies that want to acquire money. They swindle and take advantage of their clients, and many times they offer bad products. Those products can harm people, or their merchandise is very expensive and of bad quality. They do everything for their benefit without thinking of others or the consequences. Delinquency increases everyday. A lack of love in the family can cause the youth to become delinquent. Each day delinquents become more aggressive, and they don’t have any fear to murder or steal, sometimes from their own family. Also, a lack of love can cause a disintegration of the family, children without homes, and the elderly abandoned. Rage and egotism can cause distrust, fear, hate, and nonconformity. These qualities are due to a lack of love. Most people know that love is the solution for many problems, but sometimes we do less to nurture love. We need to be more aware that learning to promote love is difficult, but we must try to cultivate good qualities like patience, goodness, kindness, tolerance, and empathy. We must remember that love never fails, and it helps us to be better people.
