Know Love for What It Is
Love, even though it’s only a four-letter word, it is one of the most powerful and effective feelings that we possess as human beings, for that reason the bases of love are important.
Love could be described as a profound friendship caught on fire because it can make you the happiest person in the universe when you experience it in a positive relationship.
But if it is “stolen” from your life, it is like a direct shot to the heart, and it is often very difficult to cope with its aftermath.
So it’s very important to truly understand the concept of ‘love’ and what it is inside and out so that it can be long-lasting and become a very special part of your life.
A life without love isn’t complete for any species of creature, human or animal, because everyone needs a soul mate, someone to spend their time with here on earth.
Getting to Know Love:
For anyone that has already been in love or that is just discovering what it’s all about, you will come to know that it is based on several building blocks such as trust, friendship, cooperation, sacrifice and commitment.
First, it’s important to realize when you find a potential candidate to start a relationship with, and you start getting to know each other more and more that if you sense that this person makes you feel strange or excessively happy, these are possible signs of ‘love.’
On the other hand, if you merely feel sexually attracted to this person and are obsessed with their physical features, this is only ‘lust.’
However, ‘lust,’ with time, could develop into something more solid if these feelings blossom into something more profound.
Love can be awakened in so many different ways that it is crucial to be able to tell the difference between ‘love’ and ‘lust.’
In this way, you will know how to react if both parties are in favor of a relationship.
Love requires so much more commitment, time and energy, and usually it is long-term.
Love will make you work day in and day out since it is the most complicated and demanding feeling we have. However, if lust is what you’re experiencing or seeking, it’s much easier to deal with since there are no strings attached.
So in the end, it is important that you understand all of the conditions and restrictions that both ‘love’ and ‘lust’ require.
How to Experience the “Perfect” Relationship:
Once love is involved in your new, potential relationship, and you realize that the “fling” you’re having is not just a “summer romance,” you have to take on the responsibility of committing yourself to one person, becoming their best friend, being the person that they can trust above anyone else, dedicating your time and patience to making them happy, and always being there for them if times get tough.
Without these key adjustments to your life, newly-blossomed love won’t survive.
Also, if love isn’t carried out in the right way, it can become your worst nightmare, especially when one person in the relationship is in love and the other person was, but isn’t anymore.
As a result, both partners in the relationship must make some sacrifices so that the environment remains positive, and also be sure to accept your partner for who he or she is, even if they have some bad habits.
Likewise, bear in mind that communication is vital for any type of relationship to work, and if you don’t speak about what’s on your mind, you will come to realize that it is impossible for a relationship to thrive in silence.
Consequently, these are some of the steps you must take if you know that the relationship is going to be long-term.
Enjoying Love for What it is
The sensation of being ‘loved’ and ‘appreciated’ is one of the most wonderful experiences in this world, and without it, our human existence wouldn't be complete or identical to the life of a person in-love.
Always keep in mind the idea of spontaneity and surprises, traveling, and romantic time, since these are the elements that keep relationships alive and fresh.
It is just a matter of breaking the barriers of normality, taking the risk of commitment, and letting your heart wander free because love is what makes the garden of our souls grow and what makes our lives complete.
