Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, whilst loving someone deeply gives you courage. Will Durant said, “We are what we repeatedly do, excellence then is not an act, but a habit”. And I put it this way, if you know how to love each other, you don’t need to struggle for a space to be loved because you become the subject of love itself.
Those who understand what love is are good at love and don’t need just one day on the calendar in the whole year to validate their bond. We might have a shallow understanding about Val’s day because it’s an adopted culture for us. But real love and unwavering commitment should be celebrated far beyond a candle light dinner or a box of chocolates.
Love is our daily lifestyle activity, which needs to be refreshed everyday. Else after February 14, the reality of love will speak for itself. Those with partners are basically forced to profess their undying love for each other, whilst it has become a day of isolation for the singles. If we dwell in love, no occasion of any kind will influence our actions to show it. Make excellence of love a lifestyle and you won’t need any special occasion to prove it…Mercy!
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY
