Love is not rocket science, it’s not this long drawn out theory, and it is not a hidden element that we’ve yet to fully discover. Love is a four-letter word. It is a feeling that sometimes leaves you tight within your chest. It’s a gift that everyone has learned how to give, whether they know it or not. Love is like magic and it has the power to knock even the strongest off their feet. Love is bat shit crazy.
With Valentines Day vastly approaching, talks of love are all within in the air…and the Internet. You of course have those droughty down with love types, and you have the “bigger the bear the more he loves me” type lingering as well. Then you have the just like me type, as someone who often brags about being single, I still believe in love. Even with my dark heart as my friends call it; I have still felt love back in my day. I think what people don’t understand is that even once Valentines Day has come and gone, love still exist.
Not Enough People Appreciate Love
My generation, no damn near majority of society makes love out to be a terrible thing that can only be socially accepted on this specific day. Don’t get me wrong, love can hurt like hell, but it can also feel close to heaven. I’ve always said I want to find a love like the love I feel towards my mother. I know that may seem strange and crazy, however hear me out. This type of love is the love where you’re just blessed to hear their voice everyday. It’s the type of love where you sometimes can’t believe God gave you this person and you just want to thank him everyday for it. It’s the type of love where you love every characteristic about them, even the bad. Lastly, it’s the type of love that when you’re at your worst and down on your luck, they still see the good in you.
Not enough people appreciate love. It’s one of the many things we take for granted because we are too stubborn, too selfish, full of too much pride and have too big of an ego to fully understand. Love is one of those things where when it isn’t given we as humans suffer as a result. Whether it’s a mother or father’s love, or someone you love intimately, we all desire some form of love. Even with Twitter telling you that it’s dead. You still have to believe that deep in your heart of hearts, that love is real. It’s one of the most unfiltered, raw, and pure emotions we possess. The shit will drive you insane every once in a while, but at the end of the day love is just love and its worth it.
Don’t be discouraged if little Johnny doesn’t love you back, that’s just life and it wasn’t meant to be. Yes it’s pretty shitty that not everyone you love will always love you back, but even in heartbreak we can still learn a few lessons in love. You may be down for a while, but you’ll always get back up on your feet. It always seems a little weird offering my opinions, and advice on love as a single women. However, I do whatever I want. And unless I’m telling you go bash out your exes headlights or go key the car, I’m pretty sure this is some valid advice. Experience love and give it out too, there’s not enough of it going around and the shit is just too awesome for anyone to miss out on. Love is so much more than just a four-letter word.
