What is True Love? Let's have a Heart 2 Heart Live Talk About It

What is love exactly? Talk about it with someone at

I mean, what is true love? Some may say it is supposed to be unconditional. But we are humans and no matter what, certain situations change that. Like if we were cheated on … Can you still love that person? Did they really love you if they cheated on you to begin with? Are you a better person for standing by them or a fool?

True love is not that complicated. What we ‘think’ is love, is very complicated. Because it is very simple, no matter what you do, you should consider your actions and how it will impact your relationship and the one you love before you do it. That sounds simple right? Wrong. It’s more complicated than that. Like do you really love that person or not? Are you willing to act in your own best interest or for the one you love? If you don’t really truly love someone … sometimes you will hurt them… and may not care.

Now if you truly love someone, unfortunately for us, the evolved human being, it gets complicated. We have desires, compulsions, and issues that get in the way…and that’s the watered down version of reasons why we may do things to hurt the ones we love. Accidental or intentional, sometimes the pain that is caused to the ones we love hurts them bad enough to make them think you don’t love them. This may or may not be true.

So many dynamics as to why someone did something to hurt someone. This doesn’t mean we don’t love them. Are they being loved the way they should? Another good question…

Love is complicated. Relationships are complicated. Pain and suffering should not be incorporated in a relationship but sometimes is for many reasons. I can go on and on but I started this with one purpose and that was to make you think.

In the end, if you can, think about what you do and how it affects the person (people) you love. Anyone you love; your spouse, friend, family, whatever. Ask yourself ‘How would I feel if it were them doing what I am doing?’ If you would be hurt, angry or be affected in a negative way, maybe you should rethink what you were about to do. Is it worth ruining a relationship over doing something foolish? And by the same, think about how you could make someone feel by doing something wonderful.

Make love happen. Make your relationship strong. Live with happiness and joy. Love is a blessing. If you need to talk call someone at
