Through life, people experience many kinds of love. Many people often believe they love someone, when they actually do not because they may not know what the word means. As much as we want to understand love, it is still simply indescribable. As C.S. Lewis tries to explain it in his book, The Four Loves, it is still a mystery as to what love truly means. I believe in order to know what love means, one must experience it. It is quite true that went two individuals are in love with each other, they know it and can feel it. No matter how much love is studied and looked at, every individual must experience it to understand it. Along with this love lies circumstances which lead
We all wish to have that magical moment a moment that just leaves you in awe and feelings that are indescribable. A couple of seconds that your heart just beats faster and faster and there’s no stopping the excitement, the happiness, the butterflies. Sounds like it was just taken out of a love song, right? Truth of the matter is that love songs influence young culture on how love should feel and create this stereotype that love is nothing but a moment filled with passion and desires. But reality is that’s not always the case and these songs set up unrealistic measures such as, a passionate moment or falling in love solely on physical attraction; and if you don’t achieve that moment or are not attracted in that instant then you’re not in
How has our perception of love changed throughout the centuries? In today’s media, our perception of romance has been distorted due to movies, tv shows, and songs. While in the Middle Ages, literature and ballads were how most people learned about romantic love. “Stories told through the ages to describe variations of love as it is found, challenged, lost, denied or thwarted, only to flare up again, carrying all before it, or else destroying the lovers in a conflagration of desire .” Although, our culture is more open and accepting of relationships, in the Middle Ages, secrecy and adulterous relationships were normal in order to have love and romance.
First love is something amazing, but it can be a source of unbearable misery. Love was this amazing new experience that was brought into my life. I knew it would be hard, but I was not prepared for how hard it actually would be. The tears shed, the anger that filled my entire body with hate, the depression, the anxiety of not hearing from him, the panic attacks that would build from these events almost caused me to give up. I did not know what I got myself into until it was too late.
Love is not labeled with a number, from a young age, we are taught remorse and the act of caring for others and their feelings. For me, falling in love at only 14 was the biggest emotional roller coaster I have ever been on. Giving someone all of you is never easy, but giving all of you to the completely wrong person can be considered a tragedy. With falling in love, you must be prepared for either the most agonizing pain or stupefying feeling ever felt, it is a win or lose game with no in between.
Some might see love as an illusion of the mind that was created to coax the human race into reproducing to fill the earth. Others think love is just as fictional as magic and was created to be a fairy tale for children. Love is a scary emotional maze filled with twist and turns and it is the most amazing thing that was ever blessed mankind. It is true that love has always played a huge part in populating the earth since, without it, the human race would not have even been created. Love is the most powerful thing that has lasted for many years and will continue to do so for many more to
From the moment I was born, love greeted me face-to-face. My parents and close family and friends all gathered around to see the little human that arrived. At that moment, they opened their hearts and swore to love me through it all. As I
One of the topics touched on in our AGRO 106 - 001 was gender roles and responsibility in romantic relationships. I am American however I was raised in Caribbean culture, more specifically in a Jamaican household. So I see both ‘hands’ of gender roles and what is expected in relationships from each party. I also see the pros and cons of pre determined gender roles in romantic relationships as well responsibilities based on gender.
Every one desires to be loved by someone or something. That is one our most valuable keys of commonality in this thing we encounter as a human race called life. We were created from a most selfless love ever recorded in history. God's love, also known as, Agape love. Love is displayed in actions: humbleness, meekness, gentleness longsuffering and self-control. However, most of us relate love to a parent, lover, spouse, or our children. Agape love is the abundant love that we should all strive for. Unconditional love is symbolic in most every relationship, obstacle, and all of our hopes and dreams should naturally be centered around. This kind of love ultimately became everything I wanted.
I believe in love. Love is a very strong thing, and I believe that love can be the most obvious thing. But I also think that love can be completely blind. I believe there are different types of love. I am going to tell you about my experiences with these different types of love.
When I was 12 years old, I thought I knew what true love was. There was a boy in my 6th grade class who was super handsome. He was so handsome that almost every class in my grade had at least one or two girls who had crush on him. Almost every day during break time, there were girls hanging out outside of our classroom. They just came to watch him. When it was Christmas, his desk drawer would be filled with Christmas cards from girls. Not to mention his birthday. I still remember his birthday. That’s a day lots of girls in my old elementary school didn’t want to miss. Of course, his desk drawer would be filled with birthday cards and gifts.
Love is an abundant emotion that has different degrees. There is familial love, friendly love, unconditional love, and of course romantic love. Romantic love will be the superstar of this article. Romantic love may be around every corner whether between an old couple or a young teenage romance. However, love is not the easiest thing to attain. It is such a simple concept, though a difficult thing to actually have a person’s hands on.
We all have that one friend who denies love at first sight. They say that it isn't true because it's not possible to fall in love with someone without meeting them. They are in fact right ;however, when you see someone and you fall in love with their looks, it's love at first sight. For example, you move to a new school and you see a star football player and you fall in love with him, you obviously fall in love with his looks because you don't know him. Just like in the film Romeo and Juliet. In Act 1 Scene 5, its shows that they meet for the first time and they both fail in love with each other. Romeo says, “If I profane with my unworthiest hand, this holy shrine, the gentle sin in this: my lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready to stand to smooth the rough touch with a tender kiss”. This shows that he truly fell in love
Having a first love can change your life for the better in so many ways. My first love did that and much more. The best part of it I didn’t expect any of it. The first time I was introduced to her I was working at a place called smoothie king. I remember her walking in she was stunning basically, breath taking. I've never seen anyone as gorgeous as her. When she first walked in the first thing I noticed was her long slick hair and a smile of an angel. Her eyes where amazing as a result I would just get lost in them. The crazy part was I've never felt that way for anyone else. I would just get this pulsing rushing feeling throughout my whole body. If someone could actually give me that feeling I knew they were precious. So, I started to talk to her more and I really felt this strong connection forming between us. The more we hanged out the more my life became great. Just being around her and the things, we did I felt my life heading in a direction that was so perfect. Having that feeling that someone appreciates you was so valuable to me. I started to see myself through someone else's eyes wondering what I could do to be a better person. That’s exactly what I did. I saw myself being more grateful and understanding. There were also things I've always wanted to do in my life but I could never do because I was either unhappy or didn’t have someone to do it with therefore with her I was able to do all of it. She really did change my life for the better and I can't thank her enough.
I looked outside, I admired the stars and how carefree they were, just floating in the sky, shining moving along carelessly as if nothing could go wrong. I love how they can be so at peace with each other. I was envious of it. I always come out onto the porch in the night when I have spare time. I like to sit and just admire in awe at how beautiful and peaceful the earth is, and yet it created such reckless bests to accompany it. I took in a deep breath, and let it out slowly, taking everything in. Loving every little thing. Every moment. I closed my eyes for a moment and imagined flying, high above the trees, the clouds and out into space, floating without care among the stars. I had only been outside for around ten to fifteen minutes before I jumped startled by the Big Bang that came from the house followed by silence, and then bellowing laughter. I chuckled lowly when I realized it was just my brother tripping over a shoe, as he got up noticeably embarrassed and dusted off his shirt trying to find any dignity that he had left. I watched him as he ran up the stairs face tomato red, as if he was going to cry. I waited a moment before walking up the stairs to find him in the corner of his room. I walked over to him and sat beside him on the floor. Not having said anything, we both sat there.
