whew what a day yesterday was…
On days like yesterday I like to ask myself. What does love really mean? Is it really physical touch and gifts? Is it just the thought of having someone to keep us from reverting to our lonely selves? is it really just the deep affection we feel for someone who’s been with us for a certain period of time? I always think back to this verse for comfort and true understanding of what love really is…
4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. ( 1 corinthians 13:4-7)
Whether you are christian or not, this is the foundation of love. To me, Love is sacrifice. it’s putting someones happiness before your own without damaging yourself. If you are in a relationship with someone and you find your self impatient, rude, jealous, proud, keeping records of wrong, is it really true love? Love has its ups and downs, but if we aren’t focusing and basing our love on these principles, is it love at all? There are so many relationships that are built solely on lust and desires that shouldn’t be the base of any relationship, but our generation seems to be obsessed with the fact that it’s okay. It breaks my heart to see more and more marriages failing and it looks like it is getting to the point where marriage might not be the goal after all, when it should be the primary focus. Love isn’t something that is easy to describe, in my experience it’s not easy at all. At a young age it’s hard to describe what Love is or to even comprehend the complexity of it, but all I know is that It’s something we all can’t live with out. The anticipation of loving someone for the rest of your life, or even learning to love the people right down your street, is definitely not as easy task, but it is not hard to take a step in the right direction.
