• Love is a word used so carelessly often. It's flung about without relevance. You can only think to wonder why. People never once think to suspect of the consequences and what their actions behind the word can do to another person. One does not think before an action is performed. It is merely done. Rarely it is sought out. There is pain as a cause of this. The pain may or may not be shown, physically or mentally.

    As previously mentioned, there are dozens of meanings for the word 'love'. Sometimes it is used just to please others. It comforts us to hear the word. When heard, we think of a certain warmth. And other times it is often meant, but again this does not mean all the time. We try our best to love and be loved. It's one of our greatest human desires. We just want someone to hold, to care about, and... essentially love. It can prove to be a difficult task.

    Love is confusing. Love is blind. Love is a lot of things. All the sayings may or not be true. It depends on our own personal beliefs. To me, it will always be confusing. We fall in love countless times in our lives in hopes to find the ''one.'' It's hard. We want someone to be the love of our life. We need it just like we need air. It keeps us sane and alive inside. Not only that, but it gives us something to look forward to in life. With love comes hope. Love often comes with many other emotions, both the negative and positive. We try our best. Joy, Happiness, Grief, Betrayal, Anger, Jealousy are but a few of the feelings that tag along.

    Love has existed for a long time by now. How long? We may never know. Did primative species fall in love? Or was it the love and act of God? Either way love was inevitable. It happened. For the better and possibly the worse.

    Needless to say, love is a grand thing to obtain once you achieve it. If it's true, stay true to yourself. Don't deceive yourself into thinking that it's real. This can often lead to falling apart. You'll know when you find the right person. They'll be there for you. They'll stay with you through the tears and the fears as well as the joyous occasions. Don't toss love around like it's a crummy piece of dirt. It's something that world lacks these days.

    Love comes in all types as well as packages. Whether it's a love for a talent or thing. Whether it's a love for a pet or an animal. Whether it's love for the world. Whether it's for a community. Whether it's for a person. Whether it's conditional or unconditional. It's still love. It keeps you upbeat and in tune with yourself. It's something real to cling to. Don't let it escape your nimble grasp or gentle embrace. If it's real, it's real. If it withers, let it go. As the saying goes, "If you love it, set it free. If it doesn't come back, it was never meant to be." It applies on so many levels.

    Just be sure you're doing the right things. Don't do anything you'll regret. Don't go on the whims of others. Be true to yourself. You want yourself to be happy. Once you're comfortable in life, then you can be ready to love and be loved. Then again, love has been with one since birth. It will always be there. We have always been surrounded by people and things we love and don't you ever think that you're unloved. It'll be there even if you can't see it.

    Evidently, we are all human. We can only do so much in our life span. We are only human and will continue to be such. It is in our nature to do so. We are born with hearts both physically and pyschologically. The organ, the heart, keeps us alive by pumping blood through our system. The other heart is a more difficult mystery to explain. It's passionate and alive with emotions. It can be fueled by either hatred or love. It's possible to die from either as well. We can all die from a broken heart.

    If you believe in a soul, that's entirely up to you. The emotion can be deeply planted in it's roots. A soul is what makes us... us. It's another given part of our humanity. Whether you believe in fate or destiny is entirely up to you. Some say the love of our life is destined by the stars. Some say it's fate when you find love. All in all, love has always coexisted with us in a frequent pitch. It'll always be there. Sometimes you know it's there. Sometimes you have to search for it.

    Nonetheless, it's there. Love is love. You can never change it. It's one of the greatest emotions that exist to this day.
