Opening the Box on Love

Posted: November 10, 2010 in writing

I have a very deep opinion when it comes to love. I believe that love comes in many different ways from many different people. You should never try to put love into a neat little box because it is much too vast for that. I also believe that there is “that person” for each and every one of us. There is someone who WILL at some time come into our life that will make it complete. That one person in your life will be just what you need to keep your world from spinning out of control. That person will be the missing puzzle piece.

You have to be open to who it is and what part they play. Everyone assumes that your missing piece is “the love” (as in sexual) of your life but have you ever stopped to truly think about that? What if that person is “the love” (as in love) of your life? I am sure at this point you’re saying ‘aren’t they the same thing’? Not to me! I don’t believe sex has to play a part in ‘being in love’. I believe you can be deeply and passionately ‘in love’ with someone without ever having sex. Just like you can have sex without ever being ‘in love’. The two feelings are not linked exclusively together.

You have to open up your mind, heart, soul, and box in order to truly find ‘that’ person. If you are closed off in any way you are going to miss the best thing that can come into your life. One day you will wake to realize that no matter what you do that one missing piece will never be put where it needs to be. If you don’t allow love to find you, you will never know what it means to truly love someone else. To look at that person and know with all your heart that you would give and do anything for them as long as they are happy. You will get the deepest pleasure knowing that their desires are coming true. You will have this bottomless pit of love for them that no one can fill because…well it’s bottomless.

Don’t get me wrong you will, at some point if not many points, have sad moments even with them in your life but you can and will get through those times because of the love you have for that one person. If you take a moment and think about how you feel about ‘that person’ that love starts to make the sad moments go away.

You also need to realize that ‘that person’ might not love you back the same way you love them, that’s okay. You should never love someone for what you can get from them, you should love them for what you can give. By allowing yourself to truly love someone you have opened up the box and let love flow out to everyone and everything you come in contact with.

If you are lucky enough to be loved back by that person in any way you are blessed beyond all reasoning. Your life suddenly becomes this amazing place that is magical and beautiful. Keep in mind thou that their love for you may come in the form of emotional not sexual love. I personally prefer the emotional love because I feel it is more real. When someone loves you for who YOU are there is nothing quite like it.

Step out of your comfort zone and let love in, you will be surprised with what could happen. It’s an amazing feeling, try it some time.
