Love: A Feeling Worth Experiencing

Love is same as being under the water and still breathing fine. With love you can survive problems bigger than your own self, it’s like living in a la-la-land but in real life, you feel the joy within and you know it’s pure, genuine and real. We confuse love with romantic love, love is not limited to it, it is much more than that. For instance, you receive and give love to your friends, family, siblings, partners etc. Love is a friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.

Loving someone or being loved by someone gives you strength, it’s like feeling the sun from both the sides. I read somewhere you should never stop believing in good things, love is one of them. Although, people today are scared to love or commit, probably because of their past experiences. But that isn’t the right approach, just because the person you met wasn’t good to you or wasn’t your forever doesn’t mean that it is the end of the story and you should not love anymore. You must have heard all the five fingers aren’t the same, this is exactly the case with people. If there are bad people there are good people too, and past is supposed to teach you a lesson; not abandon a feeling. We develop an emotional bond when we love someone and when it breaks it hurts and there is nothing wrong about it. But, think about it, was it the love that hurt you or the person? The person, right? Then why do you blame love for it?

They say you fall in love, but I believe when the bond is real you don’t fall in love, you rise! Love means growing together, it can be growing up together or growing old together.

Love means making all the efforts just to see that one big smile on their face, it’s about caring for them when they aren’t well be it mentally or physically, it means being excited for their birthday more than them, it means respecting them even when you are angry, it means trusting and believing in them no matter what, it is about two people refusing to give up on each other, it’s about being your no-filter self with them, it’s about you knowing no matter what happens they’ll understand you and support you, It’s about two people who can fight each other but at the same time can also fight for each other! and the list goes on. Love isn’t about the big things, it’s about the little things that you do for each other without feeling forced.

Love isn’t a fairytale and hence, it doesn’t mean all the good times; it means handling the bad times with care and respect. Respect, individuality, honesty, understanding, care and of course emotional connection all together is love, they make a healthy relationship be it with anyone. Don’t rush things that you want to last forever and hence don’t rush a bond, take your own sweet time to understand the person and if you feel like giving it a shot, go ahead! Shahrukh khan in Dear Zindagi said, “you try different chairs before buying one, you look for the most appropriate one and when you find it you decide to bring it home; same is the case with people, you try to find your “the one” and when you find him/her you stay with them.” And I think it’s beautiful.

When you cook a dish you pour salt, turmeric etc. into it and if you remove any one of the ingredients, the dish feels tasteless; same is life, everything is a part of life be it your career, family, love life or any other, and if any one part is removed life feels empty.

It’s simple, with some people things seem naturally easy, and you know you want to stay with them. You have to face tough times in every relationship/friendship, but they are just a test of how strong the bond is. It’s not about who left, it’s about who stayed!

You write a new and a completely different story with every person you meet, so don’t let your or their past come in between, past is past there’s no point worrying about it. People have a certain part in your life, they’ll leave once their part is over; so, for now enjoy the time you are with them, without getting tensed about what tomorrow holds, whatever it does you can’t help anyway so why destroy your present thinking about the future? Makes sense, right?

So, don’t be afraid of listening to your heart, but at the same time be careful. Take your time to know the person and then if you think that you are mentally and physically ready for it, give it a shot. Life is too short to regret. All the Best, wishing you all the luck!

Love is a very subjective term, to me it is feeling like home in that person’s company; to you it can be different. So, think about it and tell me what is love to you and what do you believe is your love language (mine is food :D), I would love to read/hear.

Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit~ Khalil Gibran
