How to Explain Love
Love is one of most wonderful feelings in the world. No matter what others may say, in the end love does conquer all. To love and to be in love are two different things. Love is a feeling that warms your heart, it is an all-embracing feeling: love to of a friend, mother, siblings. There is nothing more important than the bond of family. This kind of love is familiar to most of us, but not everyone has experienced the love to the opposite sex. It is hard to explain especially to someone who has never loved before or has long forgotten what it’s like. If you want to explain love to someone, then you may need a few tips and ideas on how to do that.
Love sneaks up on you
When you love someone, you love them for their soul, but when you first meet you don’t see their soul yet. So the first thing that attracts you may be eyes, smile, and even a funny joke. You never know when the realization of love comes. When people talk about love at the first sight, they mean that they get this vibe: once you see a person, you feel that it is your twin soul: someone who understands you, your patterns and your reasons without any words. And sometimes you realize you love someone long after you fall into it.
Love is unconditional
Love is when you accept a person for who they are; when you want to do good to someone you love, no matter whether or not they love you back. You want them to be happy, even if you are not the one who gets to be with them. Because seeing the person you love unhappy pains you more than your own unhappiness.
Among other things, love lets you understand other person, even when they can’t explain themselves. It is a deep understanding of nature of other person, their fears, dreams and hopes.
When you love someone you don’t think that it can pass. The very thought of your love not being everlasting seems absurd: you can’t imagine time when you may not love this person and you can’t remember what it was like to not love them.
“Love is patient and kind”
The best explanation of love you can possibly find is also one of the most ancient and accurate ones. The Bible (Corinthians 13:4–8a): Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.
- When explaining love to someone, don’t force it; don’t insist that your view is the ultimate truth.
- Don’t make anyone think their love isn’t real or pure; do not put your own feelings above feelings of other people: you never know what’s going on in their hearts.
- If someone doesn’t understand love and you can’t explain it to them, never tell them that they are shallow: they just haven’t been lucky enough to experience it yet.
- Don’t let anyone convince you love doesn’t exist, and don’t let anyone shatter your faith in it.
Despite what many people may think, love is the most powerful feeling. One of the opposite feelings is rage or hate. Rage is an incredibly powerful feeling; it destroys you and consumes you. But love trumps it up. To prove you that love conquers all and beats all the negative feelings, we can give you one simple example: between retaliation upon the enemy and being with the person you love, what would you choose?
