In life we have the opportunity to express our love in a variety of ways. Love is the act of giving of ourselves, lifting others up, and always wanting the best for those we care about. But love is not always beautiful and it is not always easy; it sometimes requires pushing our own needs to the side in order to do what is best for someone else. There are times that having someone’s best interest at heart requires the use of tough love. 

When used properly tough love is rooted in deep devotion and unconditional love, though it usually does not feel like a loving act to the person on the receiving end of it. That is why using tough love is so hard to do; we never want to hurt the ones we care about and love. But tough love is not used to hurt someone; it is used to help someone who is making destructive choices in their life.

The goal of today’s show is to offer a clearer understanding of tough love; what it is, what it is not, when to use it, and how to use it. If you are dealing with someone who concerns you, someone who does not respond to gestures of traditional love, today’s show will help you understand what you need to do. If you are not currently dealing with someone who is in need of tough love, it is important to listen as well. There are times in life when each of us will have to employ its use.
