Love Is.


"Men and women... it seems as if each sex remains a mystery to other, and both are just as clueless regarding the intricacies of how we make this 'relationship' thing work.  Broken-hearted women scream that chivalry is dead, and angry men argue that women killed it.  For all the progress the past century birthed, we were born amidst a generation bent on pre-nuptial agreements and abandoning children.  Now, half of us believe that 'not feeling in love anymore' is the perfect justifier.

What does that even mean?  I don't know about you, but it appears to me that we've royally screwed this 'love' thing up.

What if I said that love is not even a feeling at all?

And what if love is to decide?

A decision to choose someone else over yourself, in everything.

Maybe love is the complete opposite of selfishness.

Maybe it looks like a decision to be patient, a decision to be kind.  A decision to not envy, a decision to not boast, a decision to not be proud.  A decision to not be rude, to not be self-seeking, to not be easily angered, to keep no record of wrongs.  To not delight in evil but rejoice with all truth.  To always protect, always trust, always hope, always persevere.

Maybe that's what love is."
