A few months ago I asked people this same exact question. Many expressed all kinds of love from love to their significant others, love to their children, to their family, love for their career, etc. If you ask me what love is, I honestly wouldn’t be brave enough to answer in a public outlet. I could define a few key terms of what real love is to me.
Love is ,crazy, solid, powerful, dreamy, unique, and you simply know it’s the one in your gut.
Like I mentioned before I asked people what they thought of love I’ll share with you, what others shared with me on the topic. While asking others what love means, to them I noticed, many felt pre judged by their answers, and hesitated to respond or simply chose not to answer. Others very naturally responded to the question with no problem. To my disappointment others tried finding pinterst or Google post to give me a definition. I don’t dismiss those online quotes, however I feel those don’t define what love is to you. Below are unedited responses of people, you may agree with their thoughts, they may help you create a definition for your self but in all love is something different for everyone, I do believe that when we have found love or have felt it we all can know that feeling.
What is love? To me, love is comfort and trust. In my opinion when you love someone whether romantically or platonically, you trust and feel comfortable in their presence and in their absence. Love is really an indescribable feeling, but I think the most important thing that love encompasses is freedom. You are free to receive and give love as you want, and it is not something that can be taken from you. It is really difficult to describe what love is, because it is an abstract concept, but it is beautiful nonetheless.
Love, real love, is unconditional. Love does not get angry over little things – it is slow to anger yet quick to understand and forgive. Love is gentle – Love does not hurt. Love is always knowing they are there, you can trust them, and rely on them.
Love to me is caring for someone more than your self and to put there feelings before yours. And to always be considerate and kind no matter the circumstance or how mad one can get. At the end of the day still look at them and smile even through the tough times cuz there will always be tough times.
Love is having compassion for yourself the same way you will feel towards someone else . It’s not wanting nothing or no one to hurt them. It’s seeing happiness in their eyes when you’re with them. When they hold you close you feel like the world stops and nothing matters but that special someone. On the other hand love for any other soul is wanting the best for them it’s giving without expecting anything in return. Love is having trust love is getting mad at someone but knowing that the anger won’t last long because the love is much stronger . It’s building together making plans it’s caring for one another wanting the best for them. But the only way to love someone else is by loving yourself first if you don’t love yourself you can’t expect to love someone else . Take care of you first no one comes first but you once you love your inner self you’ll be capable to love the people around you
To be honest love is something I could honestly never define on my own but I always followed the bibles teachings about what it is.
So I follow the Bible scripture
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
But to kind of add on I feel it’s an overwhelming energy that we as humans feel or receive and we know when we have it.
What is love mmmmmmmmm well i haven’t found love like the love of my life but the one love I have is for my family to me it’s something you can’t live with out and just the thought of you losing one of them makes you sad and being around them makes me feel good like thats all I need in your life so someday I hope to find a chick that I feel the same way about a chick that will be there no mater the good and the bad all your struggles always have a respect for each other and when you find that one person that just wants to do everything with you and just be with you even if it’s the simplest thing then you found love …….
Love is validation that all the cliché in movies make sense.
