What is this much hyped about, media favorite, obsessive and maddening LOVE?
I think love is laughter, intimacy and the small things that ‘X’ does for ‘Y’ without being asked, but because ‘X’ senses or understands what ‘Y’ needs.
Love is when one gives the other the courage to be who they aspire to be.. To believe in them even when they don’t believe in themselves.. Sometimes it might even be a dream that would never come true.. But the fact that he or she did not laugh at you or put you down means a whole lot! Bob Marley was so right when he said, “…never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful.. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever.. Laughter seems part of daily life… In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby… Life seems worthwhile…”
Love is when even if you hate something, you just can’t bring yourself to admit it when you look into the eyes of the one you love and you know how much your words mean to her.
When you love someone, you can hear what she’ telling you. Actually hear her and want to hear more!
Love makes people do crazy things. It’s true. But, in the eyes of the ones who love each other, it is just romance.. bringing them closer to each other within their own cocoon. Loves brings surprises so that the excitement remains forever. Those who do not have this magic in their lives might be envious and try to run it down by not giving it any value. The one who succumbs to this and suddenly feels like he is a dog (in the good sense.. as in loyal, loving, faithful, and always around you) is losing out on one of the best things in life. The only thing that can endure.
Love is not love if it fades away at the slightest hint of trouble. Whoever said that love does not make you cry was very wrong. Love can make even the strongest cry. As Neil Gaiman said in The Sandman, “…love makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart…”
True love can create miracles. Like Noah says in The Notebook, “… the best love is the kind that weakens the soul, and makes us reach for more, puts pints of fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds ..”
Does this kind of love truly exist? When I read those true life stories I sometimes find it so hard to believe that it really is a Happily Ever After.. because in movies, after the ‘happy ending’ where the boy and girl are together, no one shows what comes after THE END!
