Love Note #2

Why do the hard work?

Why do the hard work? The work that takes more time, more effort, more intimacy and typically feels uncomfortable. 
Why do the hard work of confronting something when you could take the easy road and avoid it? 
Why do the hard work that leads to longer and deeper relationships when you can just split? 
Why think about the long term when you can get what you “need” right now?
Why do it "right" when you can just get it "done"!? 
Why have integrity, show up, be vulnerable?
Why do what you believe in rather than what's popular?
Why care? Why listen? Why lend a hand?
Why think about another person when you have your own problems? 
Why do we do it?  
We do it for our ourselves.
