How to keep the ability to love
Love - honest, good love of young hearts - is a precious gift from the Creator, given to man as a great happiness and joy of life, and this gift should be treated carefully.
Meanwhile, often people lose this gift due to careless or frivolous handling of it. Gradually, the heart is getting sick in the unhealthy excitement of flirting, and you can no longer love you sincerely, well, selflessly and purely. There comes, meanwhile, the moment when on the path of life you finally meet a good person, whom you have long dreamed of, who would like to give your whole heart, a person who can make up the happiness of your whole life, completely worthy of your love ... and with horror you notice that you can no longer love, that you have nothing to love: the heart is worn out, the heart is worn out, the heart is incapable of a deep lasting feeling.
And how painfully, looking back at his past, to see that pure, bright, great happiness of love is traded on the dirt of dubious pleasures.
So take care of your heart!
Bishop of Barnabas (Belyaev)
