:.. Love So many things I've got to tell you | But I'm afraid I don't know how | Cause there's a possibility You'll look at me differently | Love Ever since the first moment I spoke your name | From then on I knew that by you being in my life Things were destined to change cause ...
Love So many people use your name in vain Love | Those have faith in you sometimes go astray | Love Through all the ups and downs the joy and hurt | Love For better or worse I still will choose you first .... ..: --- Musiq Soulchild.
"Am Done With LOVE!! " --- My Friend said to me. She had been deeply hurt and she felt she had a right to leave LOVE behind and move forward without it.
I thought, you can't be done with LOVE? You are done with the people who don't live up to LOVE's standards!! Who sets the standards, YOU DO!!
LOVE does not hurt you --- People Do.
LOVE does not break promises --- People Do.
LOVE does not lie --- People Do.
LOVE does not contradict itself--- People Do.
LOVE doesn't disappoint you ---- People Do.
LOVE is just a by-stander caught up in the selfish nature of someone who has done you wrong.
Lets not get it twisted???
Millions of Quotes on LOVE have been written, But Bob Marley's Famous Quote about LOVE stands out for me...
“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more.
You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you.
When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself.
Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful.
There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are.
The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again.
Colors seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all.
A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby.
Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you.
You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon.
You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible.
You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you.
You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile.
Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”
― Bob Marley
So, LOVE is .... a whole bunch of definitions put together like honesty? respect? friendliness? healthy attitude (towards someone or something)? Openness? Truth? Kindness? ----- LOVE is simple NOT complicated jargon.
“we accept the love we think we deserve.” ― Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
