What is Love? The answer to that is quite subjective. Some have felt it every day of their lives, and others have been broken-hearted. If you ask me, love is the answer to all of life’s miseries and queries.
Pour some wine for yourself because I am going to share a beautiful story with you. Love stories are beautiful, no?
Now you may ask that if love is the answer – what is the question? Pick up any query and you would find that love HAS to be the answer.
Erich Fromm said these beautiful words and it etched in my heart for life.
Think of any issues in your life – we will help you out here.
- Marital problem
- Career issues
- Lack of self-acceptance and self-love
- An issue with your family and friends
The list of problems is long. But, if you think about the solution or answer to these problems, you would find that love plays a JUMBO role in filling your life with happiness.
What’s Your Issue? – Love is the Answer
After a breakup, your heart yearns for some love. You need a safe space to hide. You confide in your best friend and want them to hear you out. They support because they love you.
Life’s struggles become a lot easier to deal with when you are loved. Isn’t that true? When we fail to make a career or fall during a soccer game, we head straight to our family to get some love from them. It brings comfort to your heart and mind.
Your heart knows that you will find sheer love back at your home and no judgments.
All of Us Want To Be Loved By Someone
It is not uncanny to accept that you wish to be loved by someone. The love could come from many sources – a boyfriend, a husband, a parent, siblings, friends, and even your dog.
I remember an instance where my friend’s dog got supremely ill at the boarding center. Perhaps she was missing the love of her pet parent. She had lost a lot of weight and stopped eating. After coming back to her home, she was weak, but the family’s love and caring got her back into her healthy self.
Whether it is human beings or animals, we all want to be loved by someone. Love is the answer, and there is no denial here.
The Art of Self-Love
Ever since childhood, I was a very conscious kid. I did not like going out in the open as I was afraid of being judged by people around me. Sometimes, I would hide inside the bathroom of the school. It took a lot of effort to get me out of the bathroom.
Perhaps that’s the reason I still like penning down my thoughts because this is a safer space. I do not know if I am being heard or not, but my mind knows that someone out there might get inspired. Maybe I would bring a small change in a conscious kid’s mind.
As I grew up, I started loving myself. Self-love is important, mate! If you do not love yourself, nobody else will love you. You need to stop doubting your existence.
No matter what color you are or what shape you have taken over the years, you need to love your own skin and the beautiful shape you are in.
As soon as I started loving myself, I did not need any validation. Hence, if you do not get love from somewhere else, love yourself first.
If love is the answer what’s the question – you now understand what it is!
Take the example of a leading designer Masaba Gupta. She was always conscious about her color, the size of her body, and the way she looked. After she received endless love from the audience after the showcase of series, ‘Masaba Masaba’, she started believing that girls like her could actually be a part of the glam world. The confidence came from the love she received from the viewers.
Love is Critical for Survival
If love is not significant, then why do people invest in pets? They wish to come back home and be loved by their pooch.
It is not at all negotiable. Everyone needs it by the end of the day! The more connected you are to someone else, the happier and healthier you would be.
Don’t believe the idea of love by witnessing pop culture. Never give up on finding love at some point of your life. It will come along! Till then, learn to love yourself and even get as much love from the people around you.
To Sum It Up…
One act of love can change anybody’s life. Have you seen the big smile on your face when your love text messages you? We want to feel loved, appreciated, and wanted!
Just hearing the three golden words can brighten your day. But, do not limit yourself to getting loved by a man or a woman.
Your parents, friends, pets, and close ones love you as much. So, yes, love is the answer to all those depressive and happy questions.
Ask me and my response would be, ‘Love is the answer, mate! It is supremely powerful.’
