Can I love, even if I don’t like someone?

Do I have to like everyone?
Is it even possible to like each and everybody?
I don’t think so.

But then there are people, who are a piece of my life, whether I like it, or not.
Do I have to like them?
Don’t think so, neither.

But i can always love them
just like I love everyone
and all that is alive:

I accept them,
just like they are.

I’m prepared to help them, in different ways,
if I feel that’s the right thing to do.

I sincerely hope that they will:
stand up to their challenges,
develop themselves,
be healthy,
and enjoy their life.

I also need to be careful not to judge them,
but see what I can learn from them.

I don’t have to like everyone,
I can still love them.

PS! This is where I’m aiming. I’m still on my way there.
