Experiencing true love in life is what matters most to me. To love and to be loved. Everything else is additional. Purposeful, useful but not vital like experiencing true love.
I believe even if one has not experienced true unconditional love as a child one can start down the road and ask and thank God for this experience in life through loving people.
It will make the difference. It will take you further. You will know true love by receiving it and then giving it and allowing the never ending cycle to go on from generation to generation. This is what matters most.
