I agree on the passage ”Love begins with a metaphor” by Milan Kundera.
When I was sixteen years old, I fell in love. It was more romantic and emotionally uplifting than any other experience I had ever been through. When I am comitted to the guy I fell in love with, random realizations about love roll up through my mind. Love is not a feeling that comes and goes. Love is a feeling that we can turn on and off, but it requires a lot of effort to maintain forever. The environment, circumstances and object of our love influences our decision to love, but ultimately it is within our control. We have to work on our love to make it grow. As it grows we will get fulfilment from it. There are stages of love and there is ultimate love according to some experts, but for me I simply describe the word love as: When we are willing to wait forever for our love! When we are willing to love that special someone forever! When we are willing to love that special someone no matter what! When we are willing to commit to an everlasting togetherness! When we are willing to care, respect and listen to(not obey, but listen to) them always! When we want to see that they are safe, happy and comfortable! When we are willing to temporarily sacrifice our happiness for theirs! When we can see into their hearts and understand their troubles immediately! When we cherish every moment we are together with them :)
My affection for the guy beside me on the photo was it started as a crush and ended up meaning everything in my world. He is the one I trust completely besides God, family and some friends. Meeting him completely changed the way I look at life and what I want to do with my life. That’s why I can say that I am in a wonderful relationship with someone who I think is the greatest person in the world. Someone I can talk to, share things with I would not share with anyone else, and someone to help me in my time of need. However, we do have our differences and sometimes it is hard for me to “keep my cool.” I like to work things out and speak my mind without someone telling me that what I have to say is wrong. Sometimes it is hard because he might not like what I am saying to him and he gets angry and upset. Each time we have an argument and talk things over we are learning from our mistakes, and building our relationship up to something strong than it was before. In a relationship there are many bumps along the way, and differences to overcome or work through. If you hold your head up, think positively, you can make it through anything. Even though we have lots of arguements and troubles, that doesn’t matter for I consider our relationship perfectly imperfect ♥
