Let’s talk about ‘love’. The kind of love that actually grows with the couple over time and not diminishes. The kind of love that keeps people together especially during the tough times; through uncertainty and despite imperfections. The kind of love that transcends distance and time.
The kind of love that keeps you so focused on your loved one and the happiness you want for each other that you don’t allow distractions like other people to steal your joy. The kind of love that can forgive, regroup and truly move forward together by mutual choice as ‘one’ learning from mistakes to build a better, brighter and stronger future together.
This type of love is a powerful thing and it should never be taken for granted. I recognise that we can’t help who we fall in love with but sometimes we meet people who do not reciprocate that kind of love and they tend to take advantage of our love for them. They may abuse it and their actions can sometimes drain us in every sense of the word and can sometimes leave us feeling angry, resentful, depressed and unhappy with them, the world and ourselves.
So, what do we do? Choose not to love another human being for as long as we live? Be overly cautious and keep everyone at arm’s length never allowing them to get too close to us? I respect these self-preservation tactics but I also know that “when it’s your time, it’s your time” there’s no escaping love.
I have learnt that love can and will find you no matter how good you think you’re hiding. No matter the obstacles and walls you put up to protect your heart from the influence of another. Love is unpredictable and it will find you when you least expect it hence you’re never ready when it comes. It can knock you off your feet. It can be intoxicating and overwhelming – feeling good and scary all at the same time. It is known to consume your thoughts and effect your behaviour in ways you could not imagine.
When and if you find that special someone who melts your heart and you melt theirs – treasure each other, the moments and the memories you share. Love although unpredictable is also beautiful and special because it is not something you experience everyday so cherish it.
