I would rather

I would rather love than hate
.
Accept all beings than suffer the pain of rejection
Be kind than cruel
To understand than be ignorant
Humble than arrogant
Forgive than hold grudges
Be generous than selfish
Face the truth than blaim others
Work out problems than avoid them
Choose freedom than be a prisoner of fear
To learn from mistakes than continuously repeating them
To break free from the cycle of habits that hurt
I would rather be happy than miserable
To see with love than be blind
To listen than to judge
To respect than be inconsiderate
.
All this I do - out of love for myself.
