Love always exists in everything we do, without it, we find it hard to interact with others, and we find it hard to choose the life we desire. In choosing to serve someone, Love is always there, we can’t give up our life for a person without loving him/her. Moreover, In life, there are many challenges and pain that comes in our way. We try to fight it, run from it, hide from it and some just go for it but despite this entire thing, we end up living the real essence of life despite every storm for the reason that “Love conquers all”
Thereby, what is Love?
As quoted, Love - a wildly misunderstood although highly desirable malfunction of the heart which weakens the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, blood pressure to rise and the lips to pucker. Further, Love is the greatest emotion of all, the wonderful thing created by God, the most expensive thing on heaven and earth. Love is the choice to do what is best for another person. Love is friendship. Love understands shares and forgives; it is loyalty through good and bad. Love settles for less than perfection and concedes human weaknesses. Love is caring, patient and kind, love doesn’t expect anything, it knows when to put pride aside, it is unconditional, giving and selfless. Love isn’t egotistical, it’s not arrogant and domineering, Love doesn’t insist in its own way. Love is an undying devotion; it is yearning to be physically and emotionally intimate. Love is believing, sharing, dreaming, inspiring, forgiving, understanding, caring and adoring. Love is Honesty. Love is supporting but not overbearing. Love is faithful and loyal. Love is not breathlessness, it is not pleasure, and it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. Love is never wanting to lose faith, never wanting to give up, and never truly moving on. Love is knowing and praying in the deepest part of what's left of your heart that they feel the same. In the end, Love endures all, hopes all and bears all.
How do we know its love?
True Love exist when the aspects of caring, respect, acceptance, forgiving and trust is present. Love can’t be true when a person doesn’t respect the other. We can’t love if we can’t accept the mistakes of the other, and love his or her imperfections. If you love someone, you choose to be patient with them (be very slow to get angry with them), you choose to treat them well. There are times when choosing to love someone comes at great cost. If you love someone you would be willing to give up everything for them, but if they loved you back they’d never ask you to. You feel love, when you have to sacrifice something: time, money, energy, sometimes the greatest cost will be giving up your own life so that someone else can live and despite all this, you are happy and contented, you do not seek anything in return. When it really cost you something to persevere in a relationship or to help someone, it becomes the real test to find out if you truly love the person. If you bail out, guess what, you have just proved that you love yourself more than the person who needs your help. If you do what is best for the other person even though it is hard or costly for you…you have discovered real love, a love that you choose to exercise regardless how you feel.
