Is it more important to love or be loved?

Report as

I think like anything, it's best to have an equal balance.
How can you love when no one loves you? But also, as a stable human being, how can you be so loved but not love back?

I could really do with a hug actually. Can you fly over here just to meet me after classes? Hahaha. I'd take you for an iceblock... on me for freeeeeee! :P
If only everything was that simple... hmmm.

I know.... I will baby.. and I'd love an iceblock... :) Can we eat it while walking somewhere, while explaining to me the weird places you've been to there? Then later just sit around somewhere comfy and nature-y? :)

I eat it while walking to the bus stops. Makes the two hills I have to scale so much easier and more enjoyable :)

Its better to love than to be loved. Being loved only causes comfurt, and not always.. But loving makes you a better person. God bless you

To Love, of course. It is not necessary to be loved in return of love. To expect to be loved in return of love is but counterfeit love. Love gives nothing but itself, and takes nothing but from itself. For, love is sufficient into love alone. Love has no other desire, no other motive and no other want but to fulfill itself. I believe, even though love longs to be loved, so shall love be equally satisfied without being loved.

If you are incapable of giving love how would you expect to receive love. You have to give love to receive love.

Both of course, if you are loved, then generally you should give love away to others...yet, these days, the word 'love' is used too much. Love is a special word, today it is thrown around in sentences like, "I love you," but you don't actually looovvvveee that person, you just love them for what they can offer, not what you can accomplish together. Though there is the other side of things, where children that are brought up in families that don't say 'I love you' become bitter. But, in the long run, yes, it is important to love, and it is important to be loved, for without love, one becomes rather depressed and tries to change themselves so that people will 'love' them...but now I'm babbling.... haha. YES! IT'S IMPORTANT TO DO BOTH. There we go. haha xD

Jesus Christ told the Pharisees that the most important commandments were to "love God with your whole heart, soul, and mind, and to love your neighbor as yourself." (Matthew 22:24-40) Both of those commandments involved loving someone else. Jesus did not say "be loved by God and neighbor." So it's more important that we show love.

Small children who receive little to no cuddling and adoration have an alarming death rate. It is important to love. But vital to be loved.

It's more important to love, for God loved us first.
