What is the point in success if it can’t be shared with anyone?
How important is love to you, and what exactly does it mean? Love is a huge word in the dictionary – probably the biggest – and it means something different to everyone.
To begin, there are many different types of love. Love for a friend, love for a job, love for a partner/fiance/husband or wife, love for a particular genre of music and so on. We can love our animals unconditionally and even love our God with every part of us.
‘To love is to be vulnerable.’ We are opening ourselves up to someone or something in a way that may end recklessly. When we love we are taking the risk of that love being destroyed and taken away from us, that is why it is important to not love with every part of you. Hold a bit back, because you never know what tomorrow may bring.
Numerous times I have seen people love and lose what they considered to be ‘the best thing that has ever happened to them’. It feels like your whole world is upside down when you lose that special person or thing in your life. When it becomes such a big part of it and all of a sudden it vanishes it is normal for us to feel empty.
But time is a great healer, and as one door closes one door opens. Staying hopeful, open-minded and not wholeheartedly devoting yourself to one thing will allow you to leave room for yourself: love yourself through and through, because at the end of it all you are not going anywhere.
You got to love love.
It can bring out the best in us, and it is an amazing feeling when we meet the right person that helps us to be the best person we can be. Laughing endlessly and having jokes like best friends would do so, feeling alive when you’re around that thing or person you love are all feelings that are addictive. So wearing our hearts on our sleeves can be dangerous.
One thing I would like to end it on: Trust cannot be expected, it has to be earned.
