Have I fallen in love?
Am I in love? What is love? Can you fall out of love?... Let's find out
It's the age old questions, that no one ever has the right answers to. You can ask for the best advice from your dearest friends, closest family members, ex partners, strangers, priests, psychics, even your dog... However, it is only YOU that can answer that question "Have I fallen in love?"
First and foremost, Love excludes any form of jealousy. That can answer your question immediately. If you experience jealousy with your partner, loved one, girlfriend, boyfriend, wife or husband, you are not in love.
How could you possibly experience jealousy when love should have no expectations? It seems love has become conditional over the past years, with a few exceptions of course. People are now saying or thinking "if he/she doesn't buy me presents, take me out, look after me, speak more quietly, cook more often, has sex more etc... then I will stop loving them" You are then basing love purely on conditions and therefore not loving who they actually are. Now don't get me wrong, one shouldn't tolerate any kind of abuse, or lose any kind of self respect for the sake of loving your partner, however, if love is returned, they wouldn't be doing that to you in the first place.
Love can grow, love can change and you can learn endlessly in love.
I feel I could carry on writing forever once it comes to love, one thing just leads to another, not that I am an expert or anything, but it's just intriguing to hear the opinions, views, stories of others who think they are in love and those that are in love. I may also like to one day express my experiences in love too.
I will try to wrap things up now, seeing as this is only my first blog. With love, you just want to see your loved one happy, content and healthy. Love can be expressed in many different ways, hence the complexity of it. There are billions of blogs, essays, debates, books, articles, movies, documentaries on love, but they all have one clear message. There is no pain in love.
