I’m amazed at just how quickly people are willing to say those three dearly treasured words, “I love you.”
What does that even mean anymore? Those words have lost all value they ever possessed. That phrase gets tossed around like nobody’s business and I frankly don’t understand why.
How can three little words hold so much emotion, yet mean absolutely nothing at the same time? Do people just say it to be nice or so no one’s feelings get hurt? How can you say that your new relationship is going to last forever, when that’s what you said three months ago with your ex? How far are people willing to take their feelings with someone they hardly know?
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not selfish, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs…it alway protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
I don’t personally know each of my friends’ relationships, and it is quite possible they could have this love, but many times it doesn’t seem that way.
I see people struggling to keep custody of their children due to parental disputes, only to see later that they “love their significant other and are so glad that they are a part of their life.” I see new relationships and within two weeks, they already “love” each other. We all have these kind of people in our lives, or maybe that’s you.
How careful are you of who you let your heart love? Are you giving your love to people who aren’t worthy of that kind of gift? Your heart is a vessel of love and passion. If you give it to every person you meet, soon it won’t mean anything but words you say to end a conversation.
Unless it’s mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it’s a waste of your time. There are too many things in life that are mediocre, and love isn’t one of them.
