The most popular definition or idea we hold as regards Love is usually “to feel tender affection for somebody such as a close relative or friend” (encarta 2009) or something like that.
There are many views on the matter of love. In our generation, and in our times love has been one of the hottest topics around.
A lot of us have fallen in and out of love many times that the concept of seems all too familiar or ordinary to us. For others, they have had their hearts broken and smashed by people such that being in love is something they can’t afford again.
The obvious question seems to be: What is true love? Or rather, what does true love look like? We generally have seen or experienced love as an emotion. However, having this in mind, I’m going to attempt hopefully, to characterize love, give it a form such that it would be more than an abstract or funny feeling, making it a concept we can appreciate.
This will be a four-part series:
Part one: What Love is (not what is Love).
Part two: What Love is not.
Part three: What Love does.
Part four: What Love does not.
This series of writing will not necessarily be exhaustive because of current constraints. There are many books out there on Love so I will so very best not to be repetitive but present characters that we can all see and/or relate to. The parts will be presented one after the other.
