do unto others

"Do to others as you would have them do to you." So I do. Or at least I try to.

And then I find my heart disappointed and sometimes even hurt when those "others" don't do to me as I've done to them.

Which doesn't mean they are being hurtful. It maybe just means they are doing for me what they'd want done for them. Ya know, the whole we speak different love languages thing.

Maybe what's a priority for me isn't as important to them. And maybe doing unto them what I value doesn't mean as much as doing unto them what they value.

Such is the random ponderings of my mind this morning...

Love sure is a tricky thing.
