Presumably, everyone believes in love and its strength, well except for those out there who are all skeptical about the whole concept and belief. Trying to find ways to describe love can be rather challenging and universal. Love is different to each of us. To start off with, the strongest love we ever experience in life is the connection between children and their parents. We very often refer to this bond as the unconditional love. The philosophy behind such name is very much effortless to understand; anything that comes between the parent and the child is not strong enough to survive the link between these two. Problems usually succumb to this. Paradoxically, there are instances when love seizes to exist because this is broken and replaced by hate, its immortal enemy. It is in such cases where human beings, subject to sins, withhold their feelings and shut their parents out.
Friendship is another word for love. As the old saying goes ‘’No man is an island’’ and almost everyone has at least one friend in their life. From a young age, we seek other people who we very often find ourselves in. Some people put friends before anything and anyone else in their life, yet some do not fully appreciate this relationship and only realize it once it’s too late to undo the mistakes. Friends are very much needed and important in life. There is really more to it than just to have a friend. Friends are responsible (strongly used) for an interesting life, to help you out, and give you advice. Very often we need to share sensitive issues with some people, and who do we turn to if not our friends? We are social beings and friendship is a way of life. Friends die, but friendship lives through both lives.
Waiting in line is the intimate relationship which is the most diversified relationship in history. I often hear people who confess their disbelief in love. I guess these are people who weren’t yet lucky enough to experience it, or maybe past experience failed them. When I was younger I think I was one of those who thought love is overrated. I thought the interpretation of love in movies was just an exaggeration and deceiving. This hunch was completely upended when I met my partner a couple of years back. I consider myself to be the luckiest guy in the world to have her in my life. Besides being my rock, my sword, and my shield she is also a friend and family. With our ups and downs, our journey so far has been one I will cherish forever. I think everyone in the world deserves this kind of love and a chance in life.
And to bring this post to an end, I would like to share the following quote by Pablo Neruda, whose meaning is so powerful and true.
”I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
