I Believe in Having Love for Everything

I believe in having love for everything. I think if a person is a loving person than life is funnier and that person will be happier. When I’m with someone I love, like my friends or family, I’m usually happy and relaxed. I also think it’s healthy to be a loving person because people that love are relaxed and have less stress in their daily life. I love to do many things and be many people.

I love my dad he’s my best friend. My dad is also a loving person, like me. The morning of my sixteenth birthday my dad came up to me in the kitchen and gave me a big hug and kiss. He told me that I was growing up too fast, and he loves me more that anything. My dad supports me in everything I do. He comes to all my games and used to take me to all my practices. He also is the most loving caring person I know. I know I got my loving quality from him.

I believe people should have love for everyone else. I believe this because God said to love thy brother and sister. Even though people can be cruel we should try to see through God’s eyes and love them anyway. Love can make a person better and if we are kind and loving to someone that is in need, we can make them happier or more loving.

I think having love for oneself is essential. When a person has love for their spirit, mind, and body they respect themselves. When an individual loves their body, they eat healthy, exercise, and take care of themselves. I love myself, and because I love myself I take care of myself and I also have a lot of respect for my body. I think this gives me more confidence and strength compared to someone that does not have love for their self.

I believe people should have love for the environment. I think that people should try harder to protect the world we live in. We should love the world and try to keep it clean and healthy. People don’t have to be tree huggers to show their love for the environment. A few simple things like recycling and throwing trash away, instead of littering, can help.

Having love for a hobby is also very important to me. My hobby is playing volleyball. I love playing volleyball; it is the best sport ever. There are many reasons why I love to play volleyball. One of the biggest reasons I love playing volleyball is the fact that it is a team sport. Everyone has to work together and communicate to play well. The players have to rely on each other to do their own job. I love making friends and meeting new people. I play High School volleyball and on two club teams, so I always meet new people and make lots of great new friends. Since players depend on each other I believe this sport creates a bond between each player.

I believe in having love for everything. Being a loving person will make life less stressful and help make a person more relaxed. I love my dad he’s a very loving happy person, like me. I believe in having love for everyone. I also think a person has to have love for their self before they can truly love someone else. I believe people should have more love for the environment and the world we live in. The most important thing, to me, is to have love for a hobby.
