(who just wants to be loved)
This is a wonderful way to start my day. You are loved. Let's not forget the power of love. Thank you for the morning reminder.
And this is exactly why I believe love is the greatest (and hardest) revolution of all. Imagine. As always, thank you for such a post, Brad!
This will always be my favorite message, and one that I will continue to stand by. It shaped me in college, and continues to shape me in adulthood. We need to remind ourselves that every person matters, and is worthy of love. Thanks Brad!
Hello, I loved reading you and I agree that thinking about others as human beings who want to be loved is a great way to develop empathy and patience. Thank you for providing this needed space for reflection.
Ugh, the trolls WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO DO SOMETHING KIND are the worst. I always think of one of my mentors in ministry who told me about the concept of transference, that people misdirect pain and anger that actually has nothing to do with you. It helps me to remember that since they're not actually mad at me, there's not really much I can do either to help them or dissuade them. All I can do is be as kind and gracious as feels safe to me, and not continue that cycle of harm. I love your way of framing it. And the stickers are such a great visual reminder. Those would be super useful on Twitter!
I feel this, deeply. Thank you for your words and for being.
Beautiful reminder. 💛 sending love your way Brad. I’m Emily, I’m just a human who wants to be loved too.
Love you brother and what you stand for. Thanks for the kindness reminder 🙏
Beautiful perspective! Thank you for sharing.
You and your ideas are loved. Kudos tonyou for finding a way to share your positive vision in creative, descriptive, artful and inspiring ways. You are making the world a better place.
A simple yet ingenious idea. Most angry people feel unloved by, most importantly, themselves.
I'm just a human being who wants to be loved. My life is pretty darn lonely.
I was reminded of reading that we are not human doings we are human beings. It’s not about what you do, it’s how you show up in the moment so I thought of an edit to your very awesome sticker “I am a human being and I just want to be loved.” Keep on bringing your fabulous sense of wonder to all that you do!
A very nice article and oh so true! Thank you Brad
