Love is never stale as long as it is expressed honestly and openly.
For some, love may be fleeting. It may be a person who comes into our lives and leaves quickly. Just because the person does not stay does not mean that you didn’t love, and weren’t loved. That love is there, marked on your heart forever. Sometimes, that love is on our hearts so we can remember how special it was and how we were made to feel. Other times it is a warning not to go rushing into something unsure.
Loves that lasts are ones that are built on the foundation of friendship, honesty and compassion. These are true loves. While hearing the words are nice, you actually will feel the love in the actions of another. These loves not only bring joy and gladness to the soul, it usually grows and spreads through to family and close friends.
Perhaps you feel that your love has changed, or it isn’t the same as when you started out. This could be true because love evolves and deepens over the years. For this to happen, you must ensure that those you love know how you feel by what you do, what you say and how you act. Thoughtful actions, little notes, subtle hints of love bring joy into another. Yet, when you sit and do nothing, say nothing, that is when perhaps the other person does not feel your love.
Love is like a garden that needs tending. We need to show our love to each other. When you do this not only is the other person loved, you are rewarded as well.
Don’t worry or be offended if someone you love does not love you in return. It may mean you are not meant for them. It may also mean that your encounter was so that they could see what love can be like, even if it isn’t you. At times, we are teachers who give without receiving.
Don’t be afraid to love. If you are afraid to get hurt, or have your heart broken, you will miss so many happy and joyful times. Being sad is okay, it means you loved. We would never know sadness if we never had love. Without love, life would be an unhappy journey.
Show love to another through your words and action, that is how you discover that you have a great capacity to love. Love one another as you are loved, and when you do you will find that love is never stale.
