Love is the strongest force the world possesses, yet the humblest imaginable. – MAHATAMA GANDHI
Life is what comes to you when you are busy making other plans and love happens to you in the same way. Love is a blessing which comes to only a few who actually value it. It is what comes to you naturally and you can’t enforce it on someone. The actual meaning of love is unknown to many. Now a days love is only confined to two individuals meeting and spending time together. Love is in the care of a mother who carries the baby in her womb for 9 months, it is in the worry of a sister who waits until the brother comes back home, love is in the permissions of the grandparents who make sure their grand child is given what he demands for, it is in the scolding of the father who works hard to feed his family and provide them with what they need. It is in the mischief of the friend who makes sure you have his back. Love is in the little fights with your partner because the one who fights with you loves you the most too.
Life is very short to realise it later who loves you truly, but it is also true that when you love someone you love them the way they are, if you try to change them it will not be called love.
Love is a give and take, when someone loves you it is your responsibility to make them feel that the effort they have put in for you, for the love they have for you is respected, sometimes it takes a lot for someone to go out of the way to make you feel loved. Sometimes you never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory. Often little moments, little occasions and little things that can make a wonderful memory are missed or ignored while giving importance to somethings which will not matter in the next few minutes. We don’t realise that those little things or little moments could make big loving memories, could bring loads of happiness, we forget that even the ocean is made of little drops of water. It is very important to give ample love, time and attention to the ones who love you. You should not take advantage of their love and do something which takes their love for granted, as till the time you realise your mistake, they will be gone. Value and acknowledgment of love is very important. It is important to show love, care and affection to the one you truly love and who loves you, loving someone is fine, but loving and not expressing it is not fine, Love is deaf. You cant just tell someone you love them, you have to show it. Like I mentioned in my previous blog also, its like wrapping up a gift and not presenting it.
Talking about women, the love of a woman is unmatchable. But the amount of sacrifice it requires to be a women is something unreal. Like I mentioned a mother carries the child and selflessly cares for the child. The love of a wife or a partner, who leaves her house, her name and everything that was hers since she took her first breath to take hold of another family and live a whole different life altogether. Do they not deserve extra love and care for all the sacrifices they do?
Men on the other hand are much stronger where the emotional and physical strength is concerned, they take all the pain and work day and night to provide all the necessities and luxuries to the family, all what they require is to understand their position and just give them some extra brownie points for all the pain they take for the love they have for the family for which they are baring so much pressure and taking so much stress. They deserve to be understood and cared for.
Now when you love someone, it should be unconditional. When you love you should not expect anything in return, it should be with a selfless feeling. But if you expect then you are being selfish. Its even quoted the Bhagwat Geeta that “he who has no attachments can really love others, for his love is pure and divine” says Lord Krishna.
When you love someone you love them the way they are, the way they are naturally to you. But if you try changing or modifying them in any way they will not be the same person you loved them for initially, accepting and letting go is a part and parcel in love, there are always a little bit of adjusting and sacrificing here and there when it comes to love. In love you tend to balance out the odds with your evens and finding peace in the little imperfections. Two people are never the same but when they adjust with each other happily is when it is called Love. “You come to love not by finding the perfect person but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.”
Just do your part selflessly and a lot more will be served on your platter.
Do not run after, or please someone to get their love, those who love you respect and value their emotion towards you and your life will be much happier. Love is nothing to be begged for, it will come to you. You just have to keep it safely. Its rightly said, “let them go, if they are yours they will come back otherwise they were never yours.”
Love is so powerful that it can turn an enemy into a friend, anything and everything can be achieved through love. It has the strength to put anything down and win hearts. Its important to be paitent though because everything happens with time and At the right one of course. Even lord Krishna says
“The only way you can conquer me is through love and there im gladly conquered”
So everyone, respect who love you, value their effort and emotions. Everything comes with Pros and cons, all we can do is ignore the negativity and focus on all the good things coming our way, count your blessing not the curses. keep spreading love, Because this life is to short to be lived without love
