Love. What a powerful word.
Many believe they know the exact definition of love; how to love and who to love. In today’s society, many modern relationships are not working out well. What could be the reason behind this? Trust? Technology? Respect? We’re not prepared for the sacrifices, for the compromises, for the unconditional love. I believe certain people are not ready to invest all that it takes to make a relationship work. We want everything easy. We’re quitters. Once things start to get complicated in a relationship, we run away instead of trying to sit down and talk. Talk… We hardly talk too. Most talk through messages, facebook but is that really talking?? What happened to the good old days, where technology didn’t exist. You can go out, have dinner and have an actual conversation without looking at your mobile. If you had to go in any restauarant, you will always see a couple both looking down on their mobiles and ignoring each other. This is not healthy for any kind of relationship. In my opinion, its a lack of respect. Whenever I am out on a date, the first thing I do is switch off my 3G and simply enjoy the moment and time with the person i am with.
Many have come across this phrase or moment in life; “We are interested in those people who are not interested in us and those who are interested in us, we are not interested in them” Funny how that works, right?
We are living in a time where people are focusing more on their careers or dream jobs hence, leaving no space for love. We don’t have time to love, we don’t have the patience to deal with relationships. Relationships are nothing more than convenience nowadays.
Here is some food for thought. Everyone has had their first love but after a break up, some suffer to get back on their feet. The reason is many find it difficult to trust again, to fall in love again, to have those same feelings again with another person. I think every person is special in some kind of way. You just have to take a leap of faith. One thing for sure is not to rush love. Love is a force of nature. You cannot buy love; it is inherently free. Hence build any relationship brick by brick. if it’s meant to be, it will be. I think being in love is the best feeling in the world but it is not easy. Both parties have to work hard but if everything is done with love then any obstacles that will come forward can be handled easily.
As the saying goes “You only live once” so do it right and do everything with love.
Peace and Respect to you all.
