Virtue of the Fortnight - Love

Love is the Virtue of the Fortnight.

LOVE is a special feeling that fills your heart. You show love in a smile, a pleasant way of speaking, a thoughtful act or hug. Love is treating people and things with special care and kindness because they mean so much to you. Love is treating other people just as you would like them to treat you – with care and respect.

 

WHY PRACTISE LOVE?

Without love, people feel alone. When they feel they don’t matter to anyone, they become unhappy. Sometimes they act angry and don’t let others get close. Everyone wants to be liked. Everybody likes to be loved. When you are being loving, you help others to feel important. They become gentler and kinder. Love is contagious. It keeps spreading.


HOW DO YOU PRACTISE LOVE?

Love is putting yourself in someone else’s shoes and caring about what they feel. It is accepting them, loving them just as they are. You can even be loving to people you don’t even know, just by caring about what happens to them and sending good thoughts. Sharing is a way to show love. Love is thinking about how you want to be treated and treating others the same way.
