About The Meaning Of Love

I write about love because I have always been deeply bothered by society’s definitions of love and how most people talk about love, and everything they associate with it. I have given this topic years of thought, and always found it extremely hard to explain my thoughts in actual words. How do you explain something as abstract and unexplainable as love? Sometimes the topic comes up on forums and I always respond to people as best I can. At first I was terrible at getting my point across, but after enough attempts I actually started to make some sense to myself. Then one day I realized I had typed quite a lot, and I never seem to run out of steam on this topic, so why not write some full articles about it?

  32. What Love Is!
    This may shock most people, but I have contemplated over this subject very hard for many years.
    Here is my conclusion; we confuse love with emotions. Love is not an emotion it is and action connected with emotions. What do I mean about this? Its simply really; but we get all caught up with that butterfly feeling in our bellies. Pain is an emotion not matter what if I prick you with a sharp instrument you feel pain. If I tell a funny joke, you laugh and you feel happy. However, with Love you can feel the effects of all the emotions. You ask why this is. Love in its purest form is an Action. That is right I said Action. You must show love to receive it; this is clearly an action. If love was truly an emotion like most young couple think; there would be no need for words. So here it is (Love is an Action) to truly love someone you must show it everyday or it can be lost. Remember Love is an Action. To LOVE is to show it with words, a soft gently touch, with understanding, with forgiveness, with Passion, with respect.
    So if you can remember that True love is an action. Take time to show that person you say I Love You; with your actions then they will love you back 10 folds.
