LOVE, AND PRESENT GENERATION
We always hear people talk about love stories. Especially the generation who had to be the most patient to even hear from their loved ones; where meeting them was one of the most difficult missions to be accomplished. But this generation, of the tech-savvy individuals; that relies on virtual friendships and relationships, whose idea of love is based on attraction, having the same interests while a huge share of people here don’t even believe in love. Actually the basic idea of love of for present generation is all messed up.
WHAT ACTUALLY LOVE IS?
They don’t really understand what love is. Love is something beyond the comprehension of those who get involved in the practicality, materialism and physicality of someone or something. It is the way a father scolds for failing but also dances in your success. When a mother stays up all night taking care of her sick child but also scolds her child for being too picky. When a brother denies to finance you but shows you the way you can. It is when a sister stays up all night, hungry when her sibling is out with friends. Finally love is where you don’t have to force things. Where you know they won’t judge or use your weakness against you. Love isn’t about the way one looks or lives. It is about the way one laughs, lives and makes people around them feel.
IT ISN’T JUST FOR A DAY
They say love is lost and that love is just in books but not if we get out of our cocoon of fears and insecurities and let go of the judgemental mentality. They don’t believe in love but they want to go on valentine’s night parties with a valentine. The concept of Valentine’s Day was to find love and stay with them for the rest of your life. Love isn’t just a feeling, It’s a commitment, a promise to always be there for each other. To accept one another as they are with all their shortcomings. It’s an entirely different feeling trying to get better for them and with them. They want to treat you like the emperor/empress of their world and do things the way you like but even if they don’t. You never loved them conditioned they change according to you.
Love isn’t just finding each other, it’s also two guys falling in love and staying together. It is also about two girls falling in love and finding themselves. I’ve seen guys be the best of parents and girls climb ladders of success together. You don’t choose who you fall in love with. Love chooses you and when it happens, everything else is just beautiful.
Love isn’t only about the fun part, it’s also about those sleepless nights you spend taking care of them when they fall sick . Being their painkiller when they’re hurting. Being there for the people you love is just so important. It’s the little things that matter ; care, affection, sensitivity, character, never come with an expiry date.
Love isn’t easy, but then no good thing is, it’s the hardships that make the happiness more of a solace. It can be overwhelming, it can be irritating, but what’s even more lovely is being in love with them when they’re the hardest to love. It isn’t just the laughter, it is those smiles you can never get enough of.
Love demands commitment, compromises, forgiveness and understanding. But above all of it demands freedom which a lot of modern era relationships lack. Celebrating love isn’t antonymous of the actual idea of love but celebrating love on one specific day and then not even giving enough importance to love on other days is something that tends to push love away from us.
We’re all humans, supposed to feel things, thoughts and emotions inside us. At one point in life, we realise that we need love to be happy in life and walk the remaining path holding someone’s hand. All of us eventually need someone to hug us into comfort. We can say that we don’t believe in love. But deep down inside all of us crave for it. We all know that the language of love is supreme. Anything is possible to convey in it. All we need to do is change our point of view. Love comes in all sizes, genders, ages and forms this should be the basic idea of love for present generation. We just have to be brave enough to spread love with the rest of the world.
