You’re setting a very high standard for love here, and in a lack of a clear definition of what constitutes “harm”, it seems to me that what you’re saying is that unless you are a perfect human being, and never ever hurt someone with something you say or do, however minor, then you have not loved.

I see your point, but I think you are being incredibly harsh on all of humanity here. We can and should strive for better, but to tell someone they have not loved because they were not perfect, that I can’t accept.
