What do you mean "love others"?

“These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you." John 15:11-12

Why is this commandment one of the hardest to keep? Love others as I have loved you? Sure God! I can love other people! I can love my friends, those I work with, those I like.......oh wait, you mean love everyone? You mean even love the people I don't like and don't get along with? Crap....

Thank you God for giving me the opportunity to love others, even when I get nothing in return. When I am spent, you fill me up. The grace you give me is astounding...
