Someone

There is someone I love, even though I don't approve of what he does. There is someone I accept, thought some of his thoughts and actions revolt me. There is someone I forgive, though he hurts the people I love most. That person is me! There are plenty of things I do that I don't like, but if I can love myself without approving of all I do, I can also love others without approving of all they do.

-- C. S. Lewis

Neat quote, important thought.

Major difference between 'loving' and 'liking' a person. But you cannot stay away from yourself. So I suggest you take the new year and change those actions that repeatedly hurt others. If you truly love others, you will change your actions that hurt them again and again.
