Her point: If you love someone who doesn't deserve it, your love is automatically being taken advantage of. If you love yourself, you won't love someone who takes from you more than they give. If you love them, you won't give them something they don't deserve. It dis empowers that person to work on their flaws because they're already receiving your love. It provides no incentive to ascend to higher states as individuals. Why does she only love those with virtues? Because she loves humanity ~ itzahazylife
