Remember that those around you have intentions that are far different than your own. While you may not agree or meet eye to eye with others, love is always the answer.
In a practical way, love is the ability to suspend your need to be right; the need to show someone how they may be wrong which we sometimes do by fighting or yelling and screaming in order to vent emotion.
Love is the ability to listen and hear what someone is really saying, accept and acknowledge and to find out what someone really wants and needs.
Love is not necessarily giving someone what they want and need as we are not always able to to that. This may create contention because one person may believe the other can give them exactly what they want. But at that time they are not capable or it is not always possible to give someone what they want because often our wants are based on a lack that comes from deep within and can only be filled through out own spiritual connection!
