We learn, we grow and we certainly mature as we get older. We find love, we lose love, and we nurture love. Love is as critical for your mind and body as oxygen. It’s not negotiable. The more connected you are, the healthier you will be both physically and emotionally. The less connected you are, the more you are at risk. Is that what love is all about? Taking that giant leap of faith? Love is taking risks. Love is patient, love is kind. Love tolerates a lot…just don’t push it. How powerful is it in all reality?
There is a mythology in our culture that love just happens. As a result, the depressed often sit around passively waiting for someone to love them. But love doesn’t work that way. Love happens when you least expect it to and it might just happen with someone who you never anticipated being drawn to before. Your true love may not be the beauty queen that you fantasized over….my guess is that she’ll be even better! Inner beauty is something that even the prettiest of women lack. You can be the most beautiful of all women, but if looks are all that you have, and there is no personality and warmth on the inside, you will soon end up with very little. Wouldn’t you rather have something powerful and lasting with someone who shares similar interests? Some men want arm candy. Good luck with that…beware, things can get a little sticky!
In retrospect, most of us get our ideas of love from popular culture. We have for so so long come to believe that love is something that sweeps us off our feet. But the pop-culture ideal of love consists of unrealistic images created for entertainment, which is one reason so many of us are set up to be depressed. It’s part of our national vulnerability, like eating junk food, constantly stimulated by images of instant gratification. We think it is love when it’s simply distraction and infatuation. One consequence is that when we hit real love we become upset and disappointed because there are many things that do not fit the cultural ideal. Some of us get demanding and controlling, wanting someone else to do what we think our ideal of romance should be, without realizing our ideal is misplaced. To get love and keep love you have to go out and be active and learn a variety of specific skills. It doesn’t come over night and it takes a lot of hard work and dedication. If true love and great marriages were so easy there would be no divorce lawyers because we wouldn’t need them. Communication is key….use it, don’t abuse it! Don’t ever underestimate the power of love!
