Since Valentine's is coming up, it made me think about what exactly defines love. Love is defined by Merriam Webster's Dictionary as: Unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another.
That's Merriam Webster's Dictionary definition of love, but in my opinion love is a complex term that isn't always easily defined.
Love is understanding...Understanding patiently beyond yourself
Love is kindness...Kindness is always free. We need more kindness in this world, but don't forget to be gentle and kind to yourself.
Love is forgiveness...No one is perfect we all make mistakes
Love is compassion...Compassion for others to hurt and struggle less
Love is support...support on both good and bad times
Love is unconditional...We all have flaws, but that doesn't mean we should be loved any less for having flaws.
Love isnt... manipulation, lies, and constant disappointment. So many people look for various types of love in all the wrong places. Sadly you can end up paying a terrible price for searching for toxic love and acceptance.
There you have it, that's how I define love. How do you define love? Valentine's Day is a nice holiday, but remember to show love everyday.
Also, I plan on taking a little break on my blog and Instagram. I've been going nonstop since the holidays. It's not going to be an extended break, just a break for a few weeks. If anyone needs to reach me, contact me by email firstname.lastname@example.org
Wishing everyone a blessed and happy February!!
