day five;

oh this topic is one i dread. not because i can't handle it or anything, but because i have yet to find it completely. and this is the topic of love, and how i would define it.

i think love is learning to be selfless, and really meaning it. i think when we think of love, we think of passion, and kissing and sex and other really not love things, because that is the way the world has molded us into thinking, with music, television and movies. but really, i think love is learning to put another person before us and really meaning it, and not letting anything stand in the way of that.

i think when we find true love, we'll know. it won't be something forced, fake, or scary. when it comes, we will be okay with it, because we know it's right and when something is right, then why should we try to fight it? sometimes i think we try to find ourselves in love, just because the want of it is so great, we feel without it, we are nothing. and to this i say, don't fall for that nonsense. don't force love. it will come.

i think the best definition of love is; "Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on it's own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things."

as for me, i've yet to find love, complete and in all it's glory. love will come. i'm not rushing into it or anything, but when it comes, i will know. hopefully.
