Love.... Does anybody really know what it is? Is it just a feel good word that people use to manipulate others? Does it really exist?
These are questions that I dare to ask since I am convinced that I do not know what love is. I thought love was something that made you feel committed compassion for another human being. A feeling that allows you to forgive their faults and be somewhat tolerant of their indiscretions and weaknesses.
I thought, when you say "I love you" to someone, it meant that you would strive to care about their feelings, their life, to the point of total respect for their situation and for them as a person.
I thought "I Love You" meant I want to share my life with you; I respect you; I want to make love to you and your body so that you always feel safe and uncompromised.
I thought "I Love You" meant I trust you; you can trust me too. I will not betray your trust and love for me. I will always have compassion for you, no matter what. I will talk to you with honesty and care; never dismissing your feelings; never putting my own selfishness in front of your happiness. I will not handle you with shallowness and false promises. I will protect your heart just as you protect my heart. I will not stomp on your person. I will recognize and respect your life and treat you with dignity at all times. No matter what.
Well apparently, I know nothing about love. It seems the words, "I Love You" are just words that can be used to manipulate someone to satisfy your own selfish needs, and in most cases to the detriment of someone else. How could I possibly think that "I Love You", meant sincerity, honesty, trust, caring, compassion, happiness?
So you tell me. "What's Love Got To Do With It?
