How we love

I listened to talk show that had the guest speakers was a couple that
had been married for 53 yrs and still walking in love. This is after a
suicide of their child and an accident that left the wife paralyzed
and in need of 24 hour care which the husband gave up his job to

This led me to the question - What is love?

It is not a mushy feeling that leaves u all high and puppy eyed

It is not a feeling you feel when you feel something you have never felt before

It is not just another fix where it feels like nothing could possibly go wrong

It is just not a feeling

Or something that just accidentally happens and overwhelm you

Infatuation / lust could give you all those

But love
Is a conscious action, love does not happen to you by accident, it
takes willingly getting to know a person and as you see things you
like you start to long for the person's company more and by so doing
you grow the "like-meter" to a point where the opinion of this other
person matters so much to you.

It is a will to good- you want the best for this person in all aspects
of life. You put the good of the person as a priority so you will do
whatever it takes to get out that best.

It is a decision you renew daily!

So how do you love?


  1. I have always though of love as a decision and willingness to open up and care, about someone else other than you and deeply. Nice one.

  2. I agree with you, love is a decision we make.
