Love, love.. What is Love?

Love, love.. What is Love?

love-3

Love is one of the most complicated words in the English language as there are so many meanings attached to this one little four letter word.

Other languages use different words for the various meanings, but in English there is only this one word..

so what is it exactly?

Love makes absolutely NO sense! Why do I say that?

Because making a statement like the following, although it is part of what Love is it is not complete and would be a FALSE statement.. :

Love is:

When just the thought of someone or something brings a smile to your lips, a song to your heart, puts a skip in your walk or brings joy and brightens your day.

 Love triggers EVERY emotion and it’s no wonder that people get confused as to what others mean!

*from a basic care of/toward someone or something to extreme passion as in physical love, fear, longing, protection,etc.*

Of course there are different definitions and origins for the word and descriptions of how they came to become what they mean today.

If you would like to read more about that, I have included this link to make it easier:

No matter how you perceive love, it is the key to living life to the fullest extent, the good and the bad.

Remember that without it, the world would be a much duller & less fulfilling place.
