To Love Or Not

Yes, I said it. Love isn't a unicorn. Someone would ask me now, "What is love?". Hian! After all your years in secondary school and university, you still don't know the meaning of that simple word? To be fair, neither do I. And o you believer, I'm not talking about Christ's love, brotherly/sisterly love or parental love. I'm talking about....oh well you know what I mean.
         Now that's settled, I think love is when you can see yourself putting someone else before yourself . It's when you can wake up in the morning or in the middle of the day while you are busy at work and smile and feel happy because of the simple fact that they exist. It's when you can overlook the little things society says matter- Is he 6ft tall? - nope he's 5 feet. Does she have D cups? - nope, none. Your friends don't think she's pretty or he's rich enough, but you still don't care. Love is when you can't go a day without thinking happily about the person, even if for a fleeting second. It's when you are eager to see the person succeed or whatever would make them happy, you'd be happy for them as well. It's when you are willing to sacrifice for another without even thinking about the consequences most times. It's when you can remove every physical attribute you like about the person and realize they still have a special place in your heart. It's when you are mad and angry but there's still this fuzzy warm feeling you have because love covers a multitude of sins. Love is contentment. It is not blind because it can see the shortcomings of another and realize this doesn't diminish the person. Love thinks about others. Love is considerate. Love is accepting of so-called imperfections. Love understands that imperfections are what make you perfect. Love doesn't want to hurt another in any way. Love hopes for the best.  Love strives to be better. Love knows when it is not appreciated or returned. Love is forgiving and Love knows when to move on.
          I still don't know how to define love. It's a word that can't be boxed into a three-line definition (but you can try to).  It's one of those words that has no synonym because it is all encompassing. It is not one emotion. It is everything beautiful in one.
          Now, go into the world and fall in love. :)
