What is love? Here is a friend’s definition of love sent to me awhile ago.
The definition of love is threefold:
Love is accepting and nonjudgmental.
Love is wanting the best for another person.
Love is doing something useful to help another person realize his/her potential.
Even more important, love is a choice. We think ‘it happens to us’, but love really comes from an opening-of-the-heart decision that we can make at any time in our lives. But to love, you must find the happiness within yourself, because when you are unhappy you are not loving.
Everyone is lovable — we have only to learn how to see the lovability in others and of course, in ourselves. Food for thought…
To continue, I think love is truth. Love is kind. Love is not jealous, rude or quick tempered. Love never fails. Love is quiet. Love is selfless. Love is consuming. Love is an open heart. Love is surrender. Love is blind. The tragedy of love is thinking you are in love for the longest time and then finding out the other person doesn’t really exist the way you thought. Sometimes love is walking away when it seems like the only thing left to do.
“I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.”
