What do you think love is? I don't think it can really be put into words. If you want to know my opinion I don't think love is a strong enough word. As humans we feel the need to simplify everything. And I think that's what we did. I think some things shouldn't be simplified because love is in no way a simple thing. So if you're asking me to "define" love in my own words then get ready for disappointment because I think love can't be described it has to be experienced. To avoid being a hypocrite I "unsimplified" the word love. I decided to get the dictionary definition of love. Love is --the passionate affection and desire felt by lovers for each other --a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person or -a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection for another person. I think that I would describe such a feeling as the way it was just said. The fact that we have a single word to describe such a deep feeling makes me uneasy if not a little upset. As said in a movie that I recently watched, "Love is not a feeling; it is an ability." I do agree to some extent, but I think love is as much of a feeling as it's an ability. But I do think that if there was one way to describe love in my own words like you asked me to do I would say that love is more than just a feeling. It is a commitment. It's not that hard to love, but it does take two people that are willing to work at it and keep the love alive and strong. Dare I say….relentless pursuit. (If you don't know what relentless pursuit is, I advise you to look it up) Love is as much of a responsibility as it is a privilege. And I'm up for the challenge. I think anyone that has ever had the privilege of having that warm personal attachment or deep affection for someone whether it is a lover, a child, or even a friend will agree that it is well worth pursuing with a pure and honest heart.
