Love and Life - What is Love?

Updated on May 26, 2010

Existing today is a never ending array of songs relating to love but what is Love? Is love a make believe notion or is love something that exists in real life and if so, is it important?

Some say there are different types of love but love is love, it is just used in many different way's. Loving one's self is far from a selfish notion but a necessity of inner and outer success. Love can be a token of life or an immense powerful weapon, if used correctly.

To love another can start by simply considering another's view kindly, without enforcing your own if it is different. To love another is to understand that you could be them if you walked their same path. Loving another is not judging them of right or wrong, even if you think your right and no harm has been committed. Loving another is setting them free and allowing them to make their own decisions, in faith. Loving another is realising that there is a possibility that you could be wrong. Loving another is when you understand and listen, without having to say anything but smile.

Love can change another's life for the better, in all circumstances. We can give another endless love but if the receiver always places harm into our lives, self love steps in to protect us. We can walk away from a negative situation with love at all times, depending upon perception. For example, it is okay to leave someone to their own devices if there is a possibility of future harm upon us but we should be ready to listen and view any future changes of positiveness. To love another is to understand that holding judgements of years before may be null-invoid as people change as years go by.

To love oneself is to love others, without judgement and hold a view of inner peace as an important desire, for all. To love oneself is to allow others to love you, no matter who they are as long as safe boundaries are met.

To be loved by another means it is okay to be you, no matter your mistakes or successes the one who loves you, should always love you as you.... As long as you love them too.

To love is not to hate with judgements and to understand you, as well as others.

      Some say 'those who want to go to heaven are selfish'.some wonder why yet we also want everyone to go to heaven. You said it well, to love yourself is not selfishness...if you also love your neighbour as you love yourself.
