Love – a style of life
Since a very long time ago, people have searched for the meaning of love. But even the great philosophers, with their profound definitions, could not fully touch its true essence. That is because love is different from heart to heart. Love is not just a simple word. It is a very special and meaningful word to each human being. Each human being has his/her own thoughts and feelings about love to guide himself/herself to land safely and smoothly into the kingdom of Love. In this essay I am going to talk about what is love for me, which are the two of levels to love and at the end I will draw a conclusion.
Love is the emotion that has had more plays, songs and stories written about than anything else. It is the emotion that makes enemies into friends and friends into enemies. For me, I believe love is a priceless diamond because a diamond has thousands of reflections and each reflection represents a meaning of Love. Love can accept a person’s imperfections without any condition, and be able to transfer the way I love myself to another person who I am fancy at. Love has the power against loneliness, sadness and illnesses and is able to transform them into happiness. Love is not all about looking at a good looking woman/man and hearing fireworks go off all the time. Love is respect, wanting to help the one you love in any aspect of his/her life; protect them from harm’s way; feeling safe with that person; proud of being with them; sharing your hopes and dreams together: feeling like you can conquer the world together and knowing that you will be together no matter what and continue on until the day you pass away.
Love comes in so many different levels, that it doesn’t appear to be the same emotion at all, but it is. One of these is friendship. We do feel Love towards our friends, that is what helps us to get along so well, and why we miss them when we don’t see them for a long time. It is also why we hold certain friends over others no matter what happens. Sometimes the bond between friends deepens to the point where a stronger bond of love is made, making then family.
Another level of Love is that bond between a mother and her children. There is no stronger, nor will there ever be. This bond starts from the very first tiny fluttering of movement and never ends, even after death of the child/mum. A mother protects her children in the name of live, and directs them through life using it as the example to follow. Well, at least it should be. It is because of her children a mother will work at a job she hates, just to make sure they have everything they could ever want or need.
Drawing a conclusion I must say that there is no an absolute meaning to the word Love. The concept of True Love is what we search for all our lives. Yet, Love is one of the most misunderstood concepts of all. What people really want more than anything else is to be loved unconditionally; to be accepted for who they are, and still be loved. Sometimes we will do some crazy things, in the name of Love. Love is actually the choice one makes to put someone’s wishes, desires and needs above their own. We all need love to live just like we need air, water and food. Without love life wouldn’t be worth living. With love in our life we are empowered beyond belief. Without Love in our life we will shrivel up and die a slow, painful and lonely death. Love is the very essence and care of our being.
