I think I like that boy, I’m not sure yet but he’s really cool and i love to hang with him, She’s pretty and fun to be with ….. I love him, are you sure you like this boy, Has he ever told you i love you.. these are some of the things you hear people say when they are involved with the opposite sex (or same-sex for gay individuals).
I’m in my twenties and I have never been in love with anyone, I’m not ashamed to say it or feel weird about it (This doesn’t mean I don’t know how to love cos I guess i do). I remember someone saying to me “All you want is Jesus, tell me when you meet him and there, then i laughed and said will do. You can’t love someone and not be willing to compromise be it forgiveness,understanding,sacrifice,,you gotta be willing to give up something
My first experience from love is from my mum, dad and siblings …True love is first and foremost about sacrifice…when you love someone you must be willing to sacrifice.
My great lesson at love was one day a end told me that they were having a conversation about poverty and she asked my sister “what if (God forbid) something bad happens and you’re left with the decision of either you or adaora dropping out of school,what are you going to do” .. Ideally, everyone in my family values pharmacy as a profession and it’s kinda a big deal but guess what my sister replied…. she said “I will drop out, adaora is fragile and I’m her elder sister so i have to protect her” . loll i know right? she told the girl to promise not tell me but somehow the girl just had to tell me.
Another lesson, was when i was in primary 5 I suddenly became very sick and had to travel for 3 months , to my uttermost surprise my sister packed her bag that day and said to my dad “I’m going with her to wherever she’s going to,there’s no point going to secondary school without her and I bet she needs my sunshine around ….I laughed and replied I bet i do ….she came with and kept to her promise , followed me to every single visit or appointment to the hospital even when she was sick (cos she became home sick after 2 months, I always hear her cry when she thinks m at sleep but then she’s all bright and happy during the day)
In my personal opinion, The greatest love of all is the love of God….He listens,forgives,protects,favors and does so many other things we don’t even know …..In all our doing we should all seek to have the love of God because believe me it’s overwhelming.
Another thing is,You can grow to love anyone as long as you set your mind to it because God has given us the gift to love. He said in the scriptures “Love thy neighbor as thy self”.
I’ve heard some people say, love is the last thing you consider when going into marriage…I don’t know much about that because I’m not married or ready to yet but then i kinda agree because we grow to love people if we really want to, most of the so-called marriages that started out of love always hit rock bottom and end in divorces. What happens when the love is no longer there?
Talking about the romantic love……I can say that I’ve really liked some boys i wished i loved but the thing is at our stage in life (twenties) love should be happy not sad, it shouldn’t be hard it shouldn’t make you more sad than happy. Remember that one accepts the kind of love they deserve,so i try not judge people and the way they love.
I don’t know what how you like to love or what you want your love to look like but at the end of the day I hope it’s the kinda of love you think you deserve and not just out of desperation.it doesn’t have to be the fairytale or Cinderella or sleeping beauty kinda love but at the end of the day
1. I hope it’s a love that was worth it and it made you more happy than sad <3
2. You can’t make anyone love you or determine how long they can love you.
3. Remember no one will love you better than u
Cos love leaves people wrecked at the end of day but then again ‘you have forgive yourself,pick yourself up and love again but be sure to love yourself more ‘
