By then, love was not an issue, it was considered as something special for uniting hearts and people lived in happiness for the rest of their lives. However, in our current generation, love is like a spark in people's hearts -it comes in flash like thing, and so does it end-. Where did it go wrong? Be my guest!
Well, we have to understand the meaning of love and the effects it comes with in our lives. This is only a starting point to understand why it is worth living in love life, how to keep it going, and what keeps it strong in a relationship.
Meaning of Love:
According to Wikipedia, love is described as 'an emotion of a strong affection and personal attachment'. However, an explanation that supports the first meaning of love is what we find to be more interesting, here it goes! ' Love is also a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection; and "the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another" Love may also be described as actions towards others or oneself based on compassion, or as actions towards others based on affection' . Do these give us a hint? In summery, love is an endless strong affection, unconditional compassion and unselfish concern for other.
Living a love life:
Since we live in a world dominated or guided by laws and rights of humanity, love seems to come in second place in a relationship; this is the first wrong turn! Love is what brings people together, and no one is forced to stay with someone if there is no mutual connection. We are humans, we have feeling, we can adopt change -either negatively or positively-, we have rights to make a choice etc, but all these when placed in the right position at the right time would bring so much joy in a relationship and dissolve minor pains -a must- in any relationship.
It really depends on us to make a decision in our lives, either to adhere to love we have or go looking for a better greener love-life -which is actually more of an illusion than a reality-. Nevertheless, we are to rethink of the impact of our actions to our love partners, better to remember, ' Our neighbour's garden is always beautiful, but we never know how beautiful our garden is in neighbour's eyes'.
Things to consider in a love relationship:
(a) Trust- a very important factor in love relationship, for it helps one eradicate doubts.
(B) Caring- this comes as a supporting factor for continuity of love and brings a sense of belonging in a relationship.
(C) Understanding- this is the factor, which unites all other positive measures in a healthy relationship.
