The Force of Love

Love is a word that is thrown around so loosely today. We love our favorite pasta at the restaurant. Or we love our favorite television show. We love our smartphone or our new car. In an era where the word love has been overused, I think we are losing the essence of what love truly is. Love is not a word that we should just haphazardly use without truly understanding its meaning. Love is not about admiration but love is an action word. It goes beyond a feeling or a strong affinity. Love encompasses passion, commitment and sacrifice. I just want to share a few insights on the force of love.

  1. You must understand that love is a force. I know that many people think love is simply a feeling. However, I have learned over the years that it is a misconception to only view love as a feeling. The reason I say that is because our emotions are very deceptive. You can feel a certain way one day. Then the next day you can feel totally different. In fact, if we lived our lives based solely on our feelings we would self-destruct. Emotions will have you all over the place. Therefore, it is important that your context of love is not based on your feelings. I’ve discovered that love is a force. It transcends knowledge, feelings or reservations. The force of love will cause you to be more compassionate, caring, and more connected to the relationships in your life.
