February is a month that is always been special for all those who are in love or want to make their love blossom… if not the entire month, let us talk about various phases of Love for the first 14 days of this month… so, let us start answering the most thought about aspect of love and that is sustaining this ‘LOVE’ in your relationship, which in another case is not possible for a longer time, as told to me…
A great lover has certainly said:
"The best way to love is to love like you have never been hurt."
Never say goodbye when you still want to try.
Never give up when you still feel you can take it.
Never say you don't love a person when you can't let go.
What a thought right? Let us give the same a proper and understandable picture.
It seems creating and sustaining a loving relationship takes HARD WORK. It takes patience, consideration, humility, endurance, kindness, selflessness and truth. It takes believing that the one you have chosen to be your mate has your best interest at heart. It takes the willingness to be tolerant of the differences...And most of all, it takes a mutual commitment. There is nothing in life more rewarding than relating to another person in a caring, compassionate, and committed way.
Today, people jump into relationships head first and break their neck. True love grows, it takes time. It takes nurturing, intimacy, and getting to know one another. A loving relationship is something to appreciate; it allows the sharing of experiences, likes and dislikes. Love grows when we begin appreciating the relationship itself and as we apply our physical connection and physical and psychological needs to each other, and as we begin to rely upon, care for, and trust each other.
Certainly there needs to be an attraction to one another, but we are not attracted by our differences in what we eat, our taste in movies, television shows, home decor, clothes, cat or dog preference, pictures, or how we spend our time. The old adage "opposites attract" has a lot of truth to it...it allows us to expand our horizons. It keeps life fun and interesting and helps complete us.
We are attracted however, by another’s creativity, ambition, humor, spontaneity, and physical features, perhaps a giggle, a wiggle in her walk and her intelligence, or his height, physique, and wit.
Well, let's look at the good things about having a relationship. A relationship provides companionship, affection, entertainment, support, and caring. It allows us to share responsibilities and combine our abilities and assets: mental, physical, emotional, and financial. Scripture says, Two are better than one, because they have a good [more satisfying] reward for their labor; For if they fall, the other can reach out and help. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! People who are alone when they fall are in real trouble. And on a cold night, two lie down together under the same blanket can gain warmth from each other. But how can one be warm alone?"
In order to create and sustain a loving relationship, we must put our fears aside. "For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and a sound mind. Be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another”.
Never give up on love, for love is the light into our being. Put out the light of love, we put out the light of our soul. finally, for today, "Better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all."
