Never given up on love
Regardless of past situations
It resides in my heart
Waiting to be shared with the world
But this is only one version
Did you know there’s a darker side?
Full of manipulation, secrets and lies
But that’s a story for another day.
The topic of love, but not in the way you’re familiar with. Personally, my mind instantly makes a connection to romance. That isn’t the only version of love, but it’s the most popular. The definition of love varies, depending on who you decide to ask. If you were to ask me, I would define it as a strong feeling of affection towards someone or something. Exploring further, I broke it down into four categories, let me know if you agree with me.
It’s only right to start with the one our mind naturally wanders to. It may begin sweet, a romantic date, beautiful setting. As the night continues, excitement increases, a kiss here, a little teasing over there. Resulting in wild thoughts, too lit to dim down. Refer to DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller for the full description.
Absence of Love
For some, their outlook on love can be stained due to past experiences. The love has fizzled out, or it was never there to begin with. Broken families, arrange marriages spring to mind. Bringing forward their baggage into new beginnings. Unable to let go or accept. It can be difficult to tackle. If you find yourself in this type of situation, there are two options. Work through the issues together, becoming stronger as a couple during the process. Or, tell the individual to focus on themselves before jumping into a relationship. Remember, we’re all a work in progress.
Acts of Love
Kindness is free, throw it around like confetti. We tend to overthink, but I say follow your gut feeling, the first thought that comes to mind. Show your appreciation through little actions. You need to be extravagant, give your time, hold meaningful conversations, reiterate your love. This is relevant for any type of relationship, friendship and even acquaintances.
What we require in a relationship varies, are you aware of your love language? There’s five to choose from. Words of affirmation, physical touch, receiving gifts, quality time, acts of service. Of course, we would appreciate them all, but there tends to be one that wins out. Potentially a deal-breaker if not present in the relationship. Once you understand what you need, you’re able to communicate that easily. Making others understand you better and cater to what you desire.

Personally, quality time is my love language. I need attention, one-on-one focused time is important to me. Actions to take would be to create special moments, take walks and do small things together. Make the hopeless romantic smile within. Keep in mind to avoid distractions and long periods without one-on-one time. What’s your love language?
