I am sure that many of you believe in love at the first sight. It sounds really romantic. But I am sure very few of you have the luxury to experience it. You always remember your first love, but you always die with your last.
Everybody has their own definition of love. Everybody explains it differently. Love can be for any person, or nature, or anything for that matter.
When it comes to people and relationships, here is what I would like to say.
With the modernity creeping in the society, the understanding of love and the concept of falling in love once and only once is fading away. People have become really practical nowadays in anything they do. This practicality can also be seen in the area of love and friendship. Dates, candlelight dinner, dancing on slow romantic songs are being done only for the sake of experience; and not only once with one person.
People today really know how to move on. They don’t spend much time in sobbing, repenting and wondering what went wrong in their relationship. They are merely sad for some time and within no time at all they are seen with someone else; often called the rebound.
The sad point is that people have started taking love very lightly as some kind of joke. Love is not just being with someone for some time and then leaving that person for some little thing he/she did you didn’t like. Love is about accepting people for who they are. It is a cocktail of adjustment, compromise, freedom, trust, understanding, sharing the laughter and the tears.
It is not at all wrong to fall in love more than once. But the way people are taking it today is not right. They purity of love is not intact anymore nowadays. Having a girlfriend or boyfriend has become a status symbol. If you have somebody with you then you are considered as normal, else you are frowned upon or made fun of. You are not in the league, so you are left out. There are people who have accepted the fact that they settle with anyone, less than them only because of the fear of being alone. Does this sound healthy in any way?
No. Not to me at least.
Love is a nurturing thing. It has a power of healing. It makes you feel special. It makes you feel complete. Love once or love twice; make sure you do it by heart and make sure it is true. Make every moment count. Make every second special. Give yourself completely to the other person and you will be surprised by what you get in return. A commitment and a promise that will be enough to make you happy and satisfy you till your last breath.
