“If you fill in the blank, and write “love is,” and you gave it to a million people, there will probably be a million different variations of what love is for everybody.”
Love is. If you fill in the blank, and write “love is,” and you gave it to a million people, there will probably be a million different variations of what love is for everybody.
For some people, love is more physical.
For some people, love is more about the word than emotion.
For some people, love is more about the time you spent together.
For some people, love is more about the surprise.
For some people, it’s more about the freedom to be with your best friend every single day and co-create a beautiful and amazing life.
For some people, love is about turmoil and arguing, proving your point. I’ve been with those type of people who are constantly trying to prove their point, that they are right, and you’re wrong.
Love is, well, whatever you experience as a child and whatever your parents taught you.
Generally, what love is going to be for you unless you’ve done a lot of work on yourself in life. Your parents are bickering, you will probably be a bickerer.
If your parents were not affectionate, your probably not going to be very affectionate.
Love also has many other definitions. The definition of affection is different for everybody.
I was once with somebody that said they were very affectionate.
And to me they were the coldest person I’ve ever been with. So, once again, their definition of affection was different than mine.
People’s definition of sex is entirely different. And there’s no right or wrong. The person who thinks they’re affectionate, but isn’t affectionate, well that level of affection that they have can certainly be satisfying to somebody else. Love it.
There’ve been many songs, America, love is thicker than water, love is higher than a mountain top.
I could go on and on about all the songs that have been written about love.
There’s so many different versions of love.
There’s the love that we feel for a friend.
The love that we feel for ourselves.
The love we feel for our partner.
The love that we feel for our children.
The love for brothers and mothers and fathers and husbands.
And everything else. The love we have for our possessions. That could be a form of love. The love we have for our dogs and cats.
But love is easy. The eagles called that a peaceful, easy feeling.
A woman comes into your soul.
That is what love really should be for everybody. Peaceful. Easy.
It shouldn’t be about consistently trying to change somebody or hope that somebody’s something that they’re not. You’re never going to change somebody. You can help them grow.
You can guide them on the path to spiritual, cerebral, emotional and well mental growth.
But you don’t want to battle, you don’t want to battle for love. Love shouldn’t be a battleground.
When you first fall in love with somebody, you need to feel the feelings that you need and desire around that person and feel safe. So connected. There’s nothing greater than lying next to somebody, feeling the cocoon of love when the two of you curl up into bed at night. I’ve always believed that souls regenerate throughout the night. Parts of your body touching and consistently connecting to each other.
Love should be very spiritual, deep. A feeling of being safe and knowing you’re around somebody that you can expose your true self to, is really the biggest definition of what love truly is. To be safe.
All the other things that we spoke about in the beginning of the article, they’re great and they are definitely important. But if the person doesn’t see you for who you are, and you don’t feel safe, for who you are, safe as what you are, safe being the person that you are, then it’s not real love. For being able to emote and express yourself without having to filter yourself and to be fully accepted.
