If You Love Them Let Them Know
When you love them, what do you say to make them feel you, rather than hear you? In other words, it’s not simply enough for you to love them. Rather, it is vital that you also express it. Do so in a way they can feel it when no words can be found. Words are powerful, but the way we choose to express them is based on the side of us we choose to present. Therefore, I can either tell you how I feel or make you feel the love I have for you. And the feel is where it all lies.
Now this article isn’t focusing on dating relationships, just relationships. Every relationship is based on love. The word love seems to be thrown about. The feeling you feel could never compare to the sound of the words itself. Captivated in a world of hits and pitches, many of us have confused love with either what someone says to us or what they give us.
If You Love Show It
I believe many neglect the power of love and the ability it has to build. Anything that isn’t connected to the heart and soul will only be short lived. Love, according to 1 Corinthians 3:2-7, which reads:
“And if I have the gift of prophecy and understand all the sacred secrets and all knowledge, and if I have all the faith so as to move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my belongings to feed others, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, I do not benefit at all. Love is patient and kind.
Love is not jealous. It does not brag, does not get puffed up, does not behave indecently, does not look for its own interests, does not become provoked. It does not keep account of the injury. It does not rejoice over unrighteousness but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things. endures all things.”
Regardless of the relationship you build, the depth of it is as deep as your heart, the love you put on display. Based on the times we were brought up in, love was more of what you were able to provide for that person, how you were able to protect them. The sound of that just sounds more like a job to me. It should never limit you, it should set you free. To love isn’t to hold back. If you truly love someone, you connect with them on a level only love allows.
Letting Go Is the Key
The true moment you accept yourself and fall for your person, you accept all. You don’t have to agree with someone to love them. They don’t have to like the things you like. Accept them as you’ve accepted yourself and you’ll learn to find more meaning to connect over.
It’s important to get away from what love it ‘should be’ and dive into the feeling and it’s potential to give. The feeling of appreciation and the urge to give derives from that feeling of love. As the bible stated above, it isn’t about self. Rather, it represents everything that self would like to offer.
What is your agenda in loving? Are you serving with your mind or are you loving with your heart? In other words, are you trading that feeling in return for something or are you selflessly giving into an experience to feel? Love is a freedom like no other because through love, we expose our true existence for the sake of a moment, a time, and a place that requires nothing but the connection of two hearts. We were created that way. To experience such a way of life that feeds life. So don’t shy away from a feeling you were born to live through.
