Love is a choice. How can I say that?
Falling in love, or being in love on the other hand, has obviously to with emotions, and we all know that they come and go. That’s why we can’t trust them entirely. Every person has the need on some level to feel needed, nurtured, being seen for who they are and being confirmed.
But that’s not love. That is nurturing your self/ego. When you love yourself 100 % you can give all that to yourself. If someone else is also giving it to you, that’s a bonus.
So what is love? And what does it mean to love?
For me, love is the highest energy and power that unites the universe. It’s the glue that makes atoms, cells, people, galaxies and planets stick together. It’s the energy that unites everything that exists. Energy can never be destroyed, only being transformed, so since love is energy, it can only be transformed into something else.
Love for me is letting another person be who he or she is. Not trying to change the person. It’s just total acceptance of what is. It doesn’t need to be persuaded or altered.
Love doesn’t disappear even if we choose not to recognize it or feel it. Love is a power that is independent of us. It’s just there. Love is everywhere. What we chose to do with our love is entirely up to each and every one of us.
Love never hurts; the interpretation of it may, if it’s unanswered. It’s in the eye of the beholder.
You can always transform your love into another kind of love, one that doesn’t hurt, like a deep friendship. People come and go in and out of our lives for different reasons, some for a reason, some for a season and some for a lifetime. No matter what: we learn.
All my love,
