Once a maths teacher came to the class and asked students if A=B, B=C then A=C, give a practical example on this context.
A boy replied, its simple madam, I love you, you love your daughter and there is no need to complete the remaining part of that equation.
Often romantic relationships can be like a deck of cards. They begin with diamonds & hearts and end with clubs & spades.
As a result, Love at first site & divorce at first fight.
Ever wondered what makes a relationship meaningful, genuine, and lasting forever?? Ever wondered what is true love??
Love is more than the often used three words “I Love You!!” Love is more than those touchy feelings and sentiments. Love is not a noun. Love is a verb, it is full of action.
Imagine a guy saying to a girl – “I Love You!”
And she says – “can you give me a lift to go to the college?”
He says – “No, but I truly love you”.
She says – “but can you actually drop me to the college?”
He says- “But I actually love you from the core of my heart.”
Those three words “I Love you” in any relationship only have as much depth and meaning as the attitude to serve the beloved.
Love is less about romance, more about respect; because remember, romantic feelings are always in a flux, they are their today and not tomorrow. Today you are in a great mood, you have those romantic feelings; tomorrow you are not in a great mood, you don’t feel those romantic feelings.
And also the initial charm in any relationship goes down with time. But respect for each other and respect for each other’s individuality doesn’t die down with time. Feelings go down with time, respect doesn’t.
And it is that respect, not romance that becomes the foundation for all of our feelings. This can sometimes be like an emotional roller coaster.
Love is less about my rights and more about responsibilities for your welfare. It means striving for the physical, emotional, spiritual welfare of the person whom we truly love.
Love is less about knowing the person and it’s more about caring the person.
Didn’t someone say – “I do not care how much you know until I actually know how much you care.”
A caring heart walks more than the extra mile to offer service to the beloved.
Love is a great blending of caring and daring.
Daring to stand up and accept the person completely regardless of their faults and shortcomings. Daring to practice, the virtue of forgiveness and to be able to let go of the mistakes and the blunders small and big in that relationship.
Yes, it is like the beautiful, colorful, fragrant rose, those emotional feelings. But it is also like acceptance the thorn that comes along with the rose, those weaknesses, those shortcomings, those faults. Yes, love is about complete acceptance, a package deal like a rose, beautiful in its color and fragrance but also coming along with the thorn.
Love is all about serving, caring & giving. From this valentine’s occasion serve yourself and do care for your beloved ones. Give respect to your beloved. Spread the positivity, respect & care.
A relationship is not about how much I give and how much I take; it’s not about the need for those touchy feelings. It’s all about giving respect & acceptance of the person in your life.
