Just saw this quote and love it: "If I love you, I care deeply what you think of me. If I don't, what you think of me means nothing." (Scott Derrickson) HT: Author Jim Denney
This is why the people who can hurt us most are the ones we love the most. Hate isn't the opposite of love. The opposite of love is indifference. And, at least in our personal lives and relationships, we reserve hatred for those we love and who have let us down.
