Modern Love

modern_loveIn my lifetime the world has changed rapidly. The world is evolving faster every day. And every aspect of our lives changes according to this new world, according to our vision of the world.

Love, or the way we perceive it, has changed as well. Some say that we have grown to enjoy being alone, that we enjoy the idea that technology can imitate real interaction. We text, we e-mail, we skype, we like, we comment, and, yet, we often find ourselves asking, “What is love?” or, more importantly, “What is love supposed to feel like?”

Sometimes we tend to analyze stuff for longer than necessary. Most times we like to believe that life was better, funnier in a distant past we will never be able to go back to. The place and time we live in is never as wonderful as those million worlds we imagine or dream about.

But the truth is, love is simply what we need it to be. Virtual romance or not, one thing has never changed: the way being in love makes us feel.

Sometimes we feel that life’s a battle, and we’re alone. We feel that when no one is willing to hear us out, or when no one is willing to fight the fight with us. We feel that we are alone when there’s no out to reach out. When staring outside the window, we see only darkness and silence.

So why is it that we need someone else? Why is it that we have to feel as if there’s something missing, something that’s been taken away from us, something that only another person can give us?

Something that can’t be bought.

Something that can’t be stolen.

Something that can’t be defined or understood or seen.

Something we all need, we all want.

And when you find that something, that’s when you’re complete. Perfect. Happy.

That’s when all your dreams become possible, no matter how crazy they really are. when your biggest fears die.

You’re not afraid anymore.

You’re not alone anymore.

Love is simply this: we give the best of our hearts to someone who’s willing to fight the fight with us. Nothing else really matters. Distance, age, sex, whatever.

People worry too much. I worry too much. We think too much, and this makes us be afraid. Of what’s out there, of what’s inside us.

  1. The last 3 verses on Love were posted in your Focus article. These are the verses preceding
    those. There is nothing new about Love. It is what it is.

    Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not Love, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
    And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all Faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not Love, I am nothing.
    And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not Love, it profits me nothing.
    Love suffers long, and is kind; Love envies not; Love vaunts not itself, is not puffed up,
    Does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil;
    Rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the Truth;
    Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
    Love never fails: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
    For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
    But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
    1 Corinthians 13

  2. Yes, you’re right Cristian nothing really matters except Love.
    No distance, no age difference, no religion or education, nothing can withstand pure love.
    As I said in one of my posts (about age gap relationship) –
    “In the end – when LOVE strikes it doesn’t ask for your ID.”

    Great post!
