Love is ?
That’s a great question what exactly is love ?
You can’t touch it
You can’t feel it
You can’t taste it
You can’t smell it
You can’t see it
It’s a complete non entity
Yet it exists without question
” Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.” Martin Luther King Jnr
I’ve heard people say ” I love you ”
I love you as a friend
I love you like a brother
I love you like a sister
When people are dating they use the term constantly
” I love you ” ” I love you more ” ” I love you more than life itself ”
Yet as soon as the relationship ends they say how much they hated the person or they behave in such a way that it contradicts the so called love they professed to have
This leads to the question was it truly love or was it just words that people love to say to make themselves believe it was something special
I can understand someone who was in an abusive relationship. They loved the person when they first met but grew to hate them due to the abuse. That’s a no brainer
What I don’t understand is the person who loves you passionately then switches on a dime to the most venomous harpy you could ever meet once the relationship has ended
My impression is they never truly loved the person or even understand the concept of love
They repeat the word parrot fashion
” I love you ”
Alas they don’t really believe it , I think it’s a hope that if they say it enough it will be true
In this day and age there are words that we over use and actions we do but don’t mean sincerely
” l love you ” is one such statement
” lm sorry ” is another
The kiss on two cheeks when you meet someone ?? Get the **** off me I don’t know where your mouths been
Four words ” Homey don’t play that ”
In case you missed it that’s a pop culture reference. A classic quote from Homey D Clown ( google him )
Tying the whole thing together in summation
We as people need to stop portraying a fake exterior and think before we use words , gestures or behaviour that we either don’t understand, can’t comprehend or don’t mean
I’m old school the words I say I say with sincerity.
If a relationship doesn’t workout I don’t turn on the person wishing them ill.
The love will always be there but I’m good at burying the feelings inside myself ( that’s the Vulcan inside of me ) ( yeah sue me I’m a geek ) lol
Sincerity is the biggest form of flattery
Honesty is the only thing we have as people
Add the two together and you can’t go wrong
It’s the basic code of life sincere and honest
Love is never lost. If not reciprocated, it will flow back and soften and purify the heart.
