I think far to many people try to define and categorize love TO DEATH! Love is not complicated or complex or needed essays to describe what it is. Love is love, the people who feel it understand it and those who don’t don’t. Simple, period. The problem comes in when people try to say what someone else is feeling isn’t love. It is love, for them. And the way you think of as love is love for you. Everyone’s opinion on the matter is different and it should be! Love shouldn’t have a definition, it should just be.
Now, for me, love is when you care about something far more than when you just like something. Its that deep inner feeling you get when you look at your significant other and you just feel so happy and free and satisfied etc etc etc. And there are so many different kinds of love and different levels. I love my cats, but not in the same way as I love my parents you know? Yet I would still run into a burning building to save each of them. People who understand love will understand that, people who don’t won’t. Like I said above, simple. End of story.
Just let love be love and be happy with that. Stop trying to define something that should be free to bloom as it see’s fit! Just love, don’t think about it!
