It is natural for human beings to desire love; as the saying goes, ‘love makes the world goes round’. Though it may not be true in the physical or scientific aspect, it may carry some truth for humans who live their lives daily in relationships.
Humans are created to have interaction with one another. There is always some connection between human beings. Special relationships are found between humans of opposite gender as in a love relationship like marriage. There is also the family bond which is part of a loving relationship. No one is an orphan as everyone is connected or linked with another through love. Humans are not meant to live their lives alone; there is an innate need in humans to interact with one another and to express their emotional needs to be fulfilled such as care, joy, sorrow, pain, sacrifice and so on.
Men and women can do many things to inspire or build up love between them, and to avoid the many prevailing problems that tear down their relationship today like financial difficulties, addiction, infidelity, arrogance and abuses. Often times, the solution is very simple and plentiful. You only need to make time for love to grow in you and in your spouse or loved ones.
Every person in a relationship has taken on the responsibility to work on the relationship which will keep the involved parties together or apart. Each party has a role to play by caring for the other person instead of adopting a selfish and arrogant attitude. Wives can do simple tasks like preparing a good meal for their husbands where husbands can surprise their wives with something they like, no matter how small or simple the gift may be. Women are more emotional creatures and welcome any kind gesture from their spouse. Even some new and sexy lingerie can encourage a little more romance in the relationship and put it on a more solid platform.
Today, marriage vows are hard to keep but not impossible if both parties stay focused on their vows, taking them to heart and commitment. It is both parties’ responsibilities to deliver the vows to the other party. Love is about up building the other spouse and not the self.
There are many ways to keep your love aflame for your loved ones.
Honesty in Love
Honesty is the best policy as the adage goes. Both parties need to accept each other as they are without trying to change the other. It is hard to keep up a pretention or a charade. When you are honest in love, you will feel free to be yourself and you will find true love because you will attract those who enjoy what they see or know of you.
All humans know and must learn to accept that no one is perfect; not even the self. So, how can one demand or insist perfection from another? Only God is perfect. We can only work to be the best as happily as we can so that we can enjoy our lives with our loved ones.
What is true love? Can one really define or say that what he feels for somebody is true love? Is it automatic that if we always want to be with one person, talk to him everyday, spend our lifetime with him that is already true love?
If we look into a dictionary, love is defined as an emotion ranging from generic to strong intense personal affection. In the Bible, it is written under 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 that love is patient and kind. It protects, trusts, hopes and perseveres.
So, is it just right to say that true love is a strong feeling for someone or something without conditions and pretentions?
I have been in many relationships and I can't even determine when love was true. I have asked the question "What is true love?" countless of times before. Sometimes we get confused from the idea of true love and plain admiration. We tend to be giving everything for the person without really knowing what the feeling is all about. In some instances after being so heartbroken then someone comes along and showed you the best things in life, we tend to look at it as the true love we have been wanting for.
In the end, true love is all about choices - making the right choices. It wouldn't matter whether you are with the perfect one or the person matched made in heaven for you. All that matters is that when you are in a relationship you try to make everything at least right and be true to yourself and your partner. Contentment, honesty and making the right choices will make you experience true love.
