I saw a meme that said, "Remember... only the one who looks you in the eye and says "I WANT YOU" loves.
And wow, it struck me. How far is this true? How far or what point do we have to go to make the other person believe that you really love them?"
From an early age we are taught this cliché so that we are like blind donkeys, all on a single path and they tell you "If he does not say I LOVE YOU, it is not love" "If he does not do this or that, he does not love you", but is this true? Is it possible to love without expecting anything? Is it possible to love someone who does not say I LOVE YOU with words?
There are those who say yes, others like me say no, that the love of a couple must be reciprocal if it is definitely well identified.
Once it was my turn to talk about love, and I started to study looking for teaching, in the biblio in dictionaries, in great minds defining these 4 letters, and there are so many types, our first love, the love we feel for our parents, grandparents, siblings, all are different, the ways to love a cat or love the letter that your last boyfriend who left you before leaving, are different.
The differences between wanting and loving are simple, you WANT when you desire something or appreciate it, you LOVE, when you are able to leave your comfort and your reality for the other person, but I discovered something, for us Latinos "love" is different from Europeans, for them "to want" is to say "to love", and that they express little with words what they love, which makes me go to another point.
The way to show love; within the personalities of each individual, there are peculiar and particular characteristics, there are those who easily say "I love you", "I want you" who write poems, lyrics, songs full of that touch of love and even see hearts flying.
There are those who show it by giving food, carrying a glass of water, caring, protecting, giving gifts, who can say that it is not love? Who can say that it is not the strength of that feeling represented in various forms? Well my dear reader it is, it is the same love seen from another form and expressed differently, no one can say to another, "you do not love me, because you do not tell me" or "you do not love me because you do not give me chocolate ice cream every 3 days" or worse "you do not love me because you do not give me a gift every 26th of each month".
When we are dating, or we are in that time of getting to know each other, it is for that, to get to know each other, not to disguise each other's flaws and throw them in each other's face 20 years later.
We are different, we are animals with different personalities, feelings, behaviors, upbringing, situations that have formed us over the years to make us what we are today, love as many other things are different and are expressed according to the way each one feels them.
I could spend hours writing forms and testimonials but everyone should think about who is the other person they love and see how they love, if you are looking for someone who loves the same as you or is the same as you, I tell you that the relationship will not work, relationships are two different people, so that there can be that balance from all aspects and can mesh to function.
To love is simple, is to give everything for the person you love or want, to love is the welfare from all areas of the other person, to love is to say it with words, with a hug, a spanking or with a "I want you to be well" or with a big "I LOVE YOU".
Love, give yourself the opportunity to live, to give it, to enjoy it and to know that you are worthy of all that God, life, the universe has for you.@mariu.espinoza
