Love is not disposable. It is forever and always. It a fire that builds up inside and makes us yearn for one another. There is no stronger bond than when two people truly love each other. Through thick and thin they will last. Where you see one, you will see the other. They grow together, learning more about each other. Love can persevere through unimaginable times. It warms our heart and feeds our soul. Love completes us.
A lot of people have no clue what love is. For some, the above description of love is nothing but a fairytale. For others, it’s as real as the earth we stand on. I blame the TV for the misconception of what love is. TV will tell us that two people can meet, fall in love, and live happily ever after. Yep, media will define love as lust, and lust as love. Sure there are people out there that marry within a month of just meeting and have a lasting marriage. There are also million dollar lottery winners too.
Love, like any structure, needs a foundation. I have found that friendship is a great foundation to build love upon. In saying that, it take two in order for love to work. When two people are friends, they know each other. They understand the likes and dislikes of each other. They do not have to agree on everything, but they will respect each others views. Friendship is the source of having each others back. Love takes it one step further. It provides a structure. Love allows two people to grow together and become one. Everyday will not be sunshine and rainbows. Storms and hard times will come. Love digs deep and roots itself into the foundation that we provided. A house will not last without a solid foundation.
We cannot make someone love us. It must come from their own free will. If we try to force love, we will only succeed in smothering it. Often times we try to force love to fall to our will. This is the worst thing we can possibly try to do. We continue on this false hope that things will get better. We cannot force love. Love must come from both hearts equally. Both hearts must take the time to listen to one another. They must be able to allow fact and fiction to sort themselves from each other. Love does not allow anyone to step in between the two hearts. Believe me. People will try to separate two people, just to watch love die. Like vultures they will prey upon a failed relationship stating that “He/She wasn’t right for you.” and when you try again, they will be there for you during that heartache as well. Do not let people interfere with your love life. This especially applies to family and friends.
Search for the meaning of love, and you will find the meaning of life.
Thanks for taking the time to read, and may we always find our one true love.
