Question...

I believe in love. I believe that love is the expression of compassion. I believe that in truth we love everyone even those who sometimes seem so removed from ourselves that it might seem incomprehensible to love them.

I believe love or feeling love for someone is different to be in love with someone. I believe love has nothing to do with what you are planning to get, only what you are planning to give (which is everything). So, if I fall in love with someone, I will give myself completely to that person, but in the mean time, they will only be someone I feel love for.

I do not believe in one love for one person though, I believe that we are created to love as many people as life will bring to us. I believe that through our love for these people we learn to understand life from different angles, and I believe that limiting our love limits ourselves. I believe, though, that sometimes limits are necessary to protect oneself from loving too much and the associated pain of a broken heart, but I also believe a broken heart is just a test to see how much more we can love next time.

i agree with you, love knows no boundary. yes. love brings smile and good feelings. but at the same time love can also make you cry. but if you really love the person, then love conquers all, even the walls where you hide all your pains.

I guess for me, Love has been redefined. I know what love is, because of the sacrifice of time, ego and self centeredness. Marriage brings with is certain "absolutes" which are stated in our wedding vows.

But I also know what it means to love my friends, which I do, some, very much. Love makes you do things that you wouldn't necessarily think about.

When two people deal with adversity because of illness (Bi-Polar and AIDS) you learn about love because love isn't always about ones self.

And therein lies the lesson...

I know what Love is because today I can put the needs of my husband before my own. And I do that daily.

Thanks for the beautiful topic. I've cross posted this writing.

Such a complicated topic; such a wide variety of comments about such. It feels good and it can hurt as well. "Love is the irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired."

i believe that love is selfish... ur restricted to only one love of your life. when you're single, there are no restrictions in love... you're free to love anyone without hurting anyone. for me... that.. is true love.

What a romantic post :)

I believe in love too, and I tell people I love them often. Some people are so touchy about love, and I don't know why. Don't hold it in, and don't be stingy with it. Share it and embrace its beauty.

I really enjoyed your post.
