Love is a Splendid Thing
Shall we talk about Romantic Love? Yes, let's do it! Happy Valentine's Week.
So often the question we ask is
Does he love me?
We sometimes forget to ask
Do I love him?
And if I do, what exactly does that mean? How do I know it's love, not just infatuation or some subconscious need to fill a void in my life. Like Loneliness, the need to care for someone, the need to be cared for ... wow, that list is long enough to fill a novel. All the needs we need filled to feel whole.
Here's what we should be asking ourselves:
AM I IN LOVE WITH THE IDEA OF LOVE.
Or am I actually in love with him.
IS HE THE ONE I WANT TO OFFER MY HEART TO?
Or is who I think he can become the actual deserving recipient?
Love is such a splendid thing, isn't it. When we give it, when we receive it. When it's authentic and based on a real foundation of integrity and true friendship.
Being in love fills us to the brim with life, with energy, oh and that rosy glow in our cheeks!
It's fun! It's exhilarating!
The flowers are brighter, the future overflows with dreams come true - in short, when we're in love, we feel like we can do anything. As long as we are together, we got this! We can climb any mountain, survive any snowstorm and the hurricanes of doubt and fear we may have once felt are powerless in the face of this: LOVE.
