When you are asked to Love you aren't just being asked to be loving, you are tasked with taking care of Love. To ensure that its volatility doesn't end up in the wrong hands, or to make certain that its fragility is understood and respected.
As human beings we fall into these traps where we believe if we've been wronged we feel justified in our response. There's more to experience in life if you rise above reason. You can be more than is reasonable, too!
