Sadly, the word love is so overused and underrated in the soceity of today, that saying a simple "I love you" could mean something as plain and crude as "I'm really drunk and I want to ride you". It's the sad reality, but love is no longer a word of passion that it was. Unless of course there is that feeling between two people that starts deep in the darkest chamber of their heart and spreads through every cell in their body until it dominates their thoughts.
With love there comes a sense of numbness, that sense that you cannot actually believe what is happening because it seems to be impossible that this is what is actually going on. Being with the person you have longed to be with for so long.
Of course, as with everything, there is a down side to love aswell if it doesn't work out as it so certainly should have. The fair truth is that love hurts. Not like a physical pain, or even like the pain of a big dissapointment. It is a form of pain so overwhelming that it is like love itself in the sense that it occupies all of your thoughts, but instead of the thoughts being good ones, they are replaced with images of what could have been. What should have been. It consumes every aspect of your life for a period of time; relevant to how powerful the feeling of love was in the first place.
I love Sophie with all my heart.
You can't make someone love you.. you can love someone who doesn't love you.. you may not realise it's love until too late.. you cannot love without a whole lot of trust. You feel that way about someone for a reason. When they hold you, when they message you, when they come online, your heart just stops, and that feeling means something. You don't know exactly what, but it's there, that's it, that's love. You love them, they can hurt you, break your heart, but you know you could never let them go, or regret having them in your life. This person has the ability to turn your world upside down, and then inside out, putting you on the most thrilling ride of your life.. all the heartache would be worth it for one moment of that special feeling of love you share. The truth is, if you are ever privileged to find this love, treasure it, but don't suffocate it. And if you lose it, remember it for what it was, not for what it isn't anymore, smile for being able to ever have felt this way. Live your life as if it's worth something, if you were already stripped of everything you trusted then you don't have anything left to lose...
It can be broken.
To truly love is to understand this.
To be in love is to respect this.
- Stephen Packer –
1. 3 types of love.
definition: love based on physical appearance
when you eros-love someone, you give to recieve, and dont recieve. this type of love is much like lust but lust is not a type of love it is an infatuation.
deifinition: love based on common interests or bonds
when you phileo-love someone, its a relationship where you give to recieve.
3. agape- "unconditional love"
definition- literally translated means charity. loving someone/something on no conditions(no matter what)
when you agape-love, you give for the sake of making the other person happy. because you truly want the best for them. you have no intentions of recieving.
2. "Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps record of no wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." - 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
3. The single most important, longed-for, wonderful, perfect emotions that are possible to feel.
"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." - 1 Corinthians 13:13
i phileo-love my best friend
i agape-love my spouse
Agape love denotes an undefeatable benevolence and unconquerable goodwill that always seeks the highest of the other, no matter what he does. It is the self-giving love that gives freely without asking anything in return, and does not consider the worth of its object.
