True Significance of Love
What is love? What comes into your mind when you hear the word, ”love?” Everyone has a different definition of love; some people can’t even put it into words.
We live in a world that is full of love however, love can only be seen and felt if we want to see it. Love is real, and it brings pleasure and sorrow too. Love is through a heart as a petal is to a rose both can’t be separated from each other; similarly, people need a mixture of love and trust together in relationships to not break up.
Love can be defined as a small four-letter word; however, it holds many different types of emotions for people and for all creatures. Love can be in many forms such as friendship, family, helping others, and giving others. Love is when I look at the beggar by the roadside at the traffic light, surrounded by the loud noises and dirty polluted air, especially in over polluted countries where the roads are jammed up with traffic always and I wonder… how can I help? I wonder what their life is like. I desire to reach out and help in a way, in any way. Love is a form of trust that you learn to reach out for people to give them. When a woman marries a man, she must leave behind her maternal house to go to her husband’s house wishing for all the love that the husband should be giving to his wife. Women sacrifice their life and their parents love for their husbands according to the Indian society and culture.
People express love in many ways. Love is a vital ingredient in any relationship, it aids people to connect with each other and build trust. Love is passionate and commitment.
Love is the foundation of each relationship. Love is not only for lovers, but it is for friendship as well. It is a feeling that shows how you connect and care for people. It is a basic need for humans. We are so sensitive towards love that we get hurt if people don’t love us back the way we do them. Love makes us cry in sad times and it makes us feel joy in wonderful moments. Love adds spice to life that makes life more exciting and interesting to live. Salt and pepper are needed on a Halloumi sandwich to make it tasty in a same way love and trust are the two main spices that are required to make relationships stronger and healthier. Parents and children share a special kind of love. Parents love their children very much and are willing to sacrifice for their children. Parents think first about their kids then for themselves, and this is how they express their love. To me, a parent love for their child is the purest form of love, and nothing can compare. In friendship, people spread lots of love to their friends. They share special memories with each other, share secrets with each other, and most importantly they are there for each other through thick and thin.
Love is not only for humans but for animals as well. Animals and humans connect through the mutual language of love. We keep animals as pets to be our companions, friends and our well-wishers. We start to develop a loving relationship between them as the time passes through. Once the bonding between pets and us becomes stronger, we get attached to them. It is really hard for us to control our emotions when they are no longer with us.
From my point of view, love plays an important role in my life. I have received and am receiving a lot of love from my family and friends. I love my family a lot and I love my friends too. I am blessed to have such a wonderful family. I thank God that I have friends to spread love to. For me love means everything, to trusting from family and friends. I can’t express how much love I have. In the year 2004, I went through a surgery in the United States of America and my family was there for me when I needed them the most. They took care of me and showered all the love to me. For me, love is the biggest healer for any problem in my life.
In India, there is a festival called Raksha Bandhan. This is a festival that celebrates the relationship between a brother and a sister. Raksha Bandhan is a special celebration where a sister ties a colorful and decorative band to her brother’s wrist for his good health and wealth. This tradition in India requires for all the brothers to give sweets, money, and presents to all their sisters. Through this festival the bond between a sister and a brother becomes stronger.
Love is the best solution to any problem in life because we can find solutions if we love ourselves, and others too. According to me, it can save all different types of relationships from breaking up. Love is the biggest medicine than all the other kinds of medicines that can heal all the problems in our lives!
Finally, I would like to conclude that love expresses different kinds of emotions for all the people and creatures. You want to experience love and feel love everywhere you go. Everyone has a different opinion of love. There are many types of love in the world. We are so lucky that we have love to show people that we care about them. Show all the people that love is important, and everything is possible with love!
