”Love is what love does.”
Let’s begin with what love is not. Love is not ownership. Love is not the need to control. Love is not jealousy. Fear of loss. Fear of life. Love is not ”you’re mine”.
”Take my hand, inhale my breath, we wont die, as long as we don’t fall in love.”
Love is courage. Love is acceptance. Love is patience. Love is work. Give and receive. Freedom. Non-judgment. Love is. Comfort.

with someone else.
At the moment I’m reading the book ”The Road Less Traveled – A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values and Spiritual Growth” written by M. Scott Peck. I believe it came out in the 70’s, however, with its timeless message about the very nature of loving relationships it helps the reader how to distinguish dependency from love, how to become a more sensitive parent; and ultimately how to become one’s own true self. I highly recommend the book, if you haven’t already read it.

I once rose in love with a man.
I believe it was the eyes.
Or the presence although an ocean apart.
But that is not love, they laughed.
But what is love, I whispered.
If it’s not recognising a soul you once knew.
With this being said; what is love for you? Put some time aside today to think about what love means to you.
