In my view, it would be better if we "love" even though we will not always be "loved" when we do it. This is a form of "gratitude" in my religion. So, by loving, we have done good things. God created the world with the same reciprocity, although sometimes we don't realize it.
As long as we continue to "love" something good, other good things will come along with our perseverance. We don't need to collect, and realize anything. What is clear, all causes and effects are always the same.
