No matter what we do, our thoughts turn to love and romance. I am not an exception.
That is why today I want to talk to you about true love, expressed without condition and expectations, love that we long for and hope to find.
Sometimes when we fall in love, we think “This is the person of my dreams”, but as the years go by, we realize that what we felt had nothing to do with love. It was something else all together. And at other times love comes softly. It starts with sympathy, with mutual respect, with desire to share each other’s company. And slowly these feelings flourish into life-long love.
So what is true love? And is there a difference between that and the heart-pounding adrenaline rush we feel when you see a handsome guy working out in the gym or when you meet a cute girl who makes eye contact as she passes by?
Does it have anything to do with a feeling of “floating on clouds” like Hollywood movies often show? Is love an emotion at all? Certainly love is accompanied by strong feelings, but they cannot be our only criteria for love. A relationship simply would not last long on emotions, would it?
