What is “Love?”
Truly what is the meaning? It can be defined in so many ways…. So lets start here
First and foremost love is GOD, no doubt. It is unconditionally, caring, kind, and patient. Love is going the distance and making sacrifices. Love complements. Love is forgiving even when one has done you wrong. It is understanding and requires no feelings. What I mean by that is, just because you feel like you don’t love the person in that moment or time does not mean you shouldn’t stop loving them. For example if a relationship ends up with a broken heart, don’t let bitterness take away the love you still have for that person. You may not be “in love” with them anymore but it’s always good to love with care. Love is not caring for how they look, appearance wise. That shouldn’t matter at all - the way they dress, the shape of their body, the color of their hair, etc. If you truly love them, you’ll even accept them through their style, interests, and looks. If you say you love them for who they are, personality and ALL, then mean it. Don’t go off complaining or talking with others about how you don’t like the way your significant other dresses or their weight and body size or how your embarrassed of them because they have a certain condition they can’t control. Now that is not love. But love is honesty and greatly appreciated.
Love is also going through a struggle, it’s not always easy when you keep trying in good motives, that is love. Love is humbling and joyful. They say love sucks and hurts but it’s really the pain that blinds you from letting you see what real love is. Like I said theres so much about love that it goes on and on.
I myself still is growing in love and that love is for and from God. I’ve never had experienced such great love until I fully came to know Him. And to be honest even though God is my first love, I’ve actually never been in love myself. Yes, I’ve had a relationships in my past but I’ve never been with someone who has shown me love the way it’s laid out to be. Like I’ve mentioned before I’ve discovered that I was more fond of just the lust and attention. I thought I was “in love” but that thought was just a fill in to cover up the void that was in my heart. Plus my past boyfriend’s never really loved me as well, main problem was my appearance and body image to them. Yet I do forgive them no matter the hurt that comes from that…
Now that is love.
"Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place."
