And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love, you make.

This famous line from The End on the Abbey Road album proves that John, Paul, George, and Ringo knew what they were talking about. It was one of their last messages of love to the world toward the end of a phenomenal career. These words speak a simple truth that I feel like we are all forgetting lately: Whatever you put out into the universe is what is going to come back to you eventually. If you put love out there, you will get love back. If you put hate out there, you will get hate back. The formula is simple and logical, in a way. Notice that this quote does not mention anything about timelines. It doesn’t mean that the very second you offer something good to the world you will get immediate returns. It implies nothing about instant gratification. It doesn’t eliminate the possibility of having to invest a significant amount of your emotions and time into something before you see any results. It doesn’t say anything about what the world owes you at any point in time, regardless of your efforts. It simply bottom lines the idea that you will eventually get back what you give.
