Is LOVE only about joy, bliss and compassion? Aren’t emotions like anger, fondness and respect in the same category? Why do we majorly tend to romanticize the idea of love? The love which is termed as bliss when it glows is the same love that turns into anger when it blows. Then why define it? Why can’t we just let it be in its purest form without exaggerating it? RESPECT is the most genuine form, REGARD is its warmest form, APPRECIATION is the happiest form, CONCERN is affectionate form and above all HUMANITY is the ideal form of love!! Then why is it so, that very rarely we decide to celebrate these forms? Throughout all my posts, I had a notion that LOVE is a cliche topic and hence it isn’t something to write about, but today I strongly feel that it is too vast to be cliche!! It exists everywhere in so many disguises!! Basically, love transcends behaviour and etiquette. What we know is the idea of love and not the actual emotion.
As a precious stone needs a setting to keep it safe similarly this feeling of attachment and admiration need sanity to keep it alive. When you say you love one person more than anything on this planet, then according to me it is too much to demand from a single person. No doubt it is an endearment and etc but isn’t it too much to ask of them ?? I think we need different people to fill different roles in our life. A friend’s amity, mom’s dotting, dads coddle, sibling to rebel with, someone to guide and of course a companion. To say that a single person is closest always and forever is a little limiting. A pack is better than a mate !!
What I assume as love is my collection of near and dear ones. They don’t all live in the same place, they don’t all know each other, they aren’t always hanging out and chitchatting and they don’t love the same. But they have my back in a second. They would fly, drive, walk, or whatever it took if I asked. All this doesn’t fit into fantasised and celebrated form of love. But this is what it is. love isn’t about making one person the centre of your world rather it is the centre of the circle that comprises of YOUR people. And that is all you need in fact it is a little more wonderful than what you need !!!
