Tuesday Rambling 6.6.17 – Before You Want Someone to Love You…

No, it’s not Valentine’s Day. But, I’m up for some rambling about our concept of love. Almost everyone wants someone to say “I love you”. Before you desire that, ask yourself:

  • Does that mean you could never disagree with that person?
  • Does love mean feelings always must drive it?
  • Must love always lead to a romantic relationship or encounter?
  • Can someone who doesn’t accept my opinion or way of life still love me?
  • How might someone’s love for you reveal your faults, and theirs?
  • What role does forgiveness play in your concept or definition of love?
  • If true love is present, do you give more or receive more in the relationship?
  • How can you restore love after someone has hurt you?
  • What percentage of love in a marital relationship revolves around romance? In actuality? In what you see on T.V. or in the movies?
  • Could you “love” until death do us part? If your spouse had a disabling event and lost all human faculties, would “love” drive you to serve that person until their death even if it meant very little in return for you?
