Love is a Risk Worth Taking by Robert Ricciardelli
When we make a decision to love, we open ourselves to suffering, because those we love most can bring us great joy as well as great pain. When a loved one leaves we can experience the worst pain. If we try to avoid suffering that comes from loss, we will never experience the joy of real love. Love is stronger than fear, and life is stronger than death. We must trust, hope, and believe in love as a risk worth taking.
