We all need the pure love of each other. We need the love of our father; and how important is the presence, warmth, security and firmness of the father as well as the corrections, orders, even the anger and berate the father … All this is love. Self-respect as a father it is necessary, essential in the formation. Essential to our growth, our balance, our maturity.
Similarly, I don’t need to tell you how much we need the love of mother, the presence, the affection of mother, mother’s own correction, forgiveness that only mother can give.
We all need the pure love of our brothers and sisters, of living, of differences, even the difficulties between brothers and sisters. It’s all part of our growth, our maturity. Without it we affectively mature.
Love is the result of learning, we need to learn. The family is the environment for this to happen in a natural way. So, let us decide, today, for loving our family.
