What is Love? Most people do not know what it really means to love someone
I Love You! We often hear someone say 'I Love you!', but do they really? Most of the time such feelings have very little to do with love, instead it's an emotion called lust.
Our parents usually have true love for us, and many children truly love their parents, although when disciplined, there are times, when both parent and child may feel anger and hurt, but true love is always there, and returns stronger than before after the disciplining is over.
Many people really think they know what love is all about, but in fact we don’t really know what is true love at all, this is the case for a lot of young people that are dating, and even for many newlyweds, they feel they cannot be happy without constantly being around their spouse.
When a young person dates, their minds are constantly filled with thoughts and strong emotions of their boyfriend or girlfriend. They struggle while at work, or School, just waiting for time to pass so they can be with the person they think they are in love with, even in marriage this continues for a lot of people, the sad fact is, this is not really love, but more likely it's an emotion called lust.
Often times, after dating for a long time, or even after being married, it seems things are not like they used to be, you now easily quarrel or fight about simple things, you find that your spouse spends more time on the computer or watching TV or being busy doing other things, but at the initial stage of the relationship they seem to want to spend all the time with you.
This is because, there never was much if any true love present from the beginning stages of dating, right into the early months of marriage, but instead it was mostly lust, and feelings of a need to not be alone.
True love takes time, and sometimes it takes years to develop. A relationship as well as a marriage will produce true love, but it takes time, and a lot of hardships and discipline. Just like when our Parents disciplined us when we did wrong as children, it was not done out of hate for us, but out of love, to help us to realize are mistakes, and to become better people.
How many of us as children, used to constantly fight and argue with our siblings, some brothers even get into very brutal physical fights with each other as youngsters, over such things as girlfriends, and other trivial things. It often takes not only years of living in the same house as children, but years of sharing in joys and well as pain and trouble with siblings, to develop into true adults that love each other.
When a piece of metal is heated by a fire, and hammered into shape, it becomes a lot stronger, just as in the case for love, it is produced by hardships and trials.
So we should always be there for our partners, whether sun or rain in order for us to build our home and true love that can last for long time.
