“We love life, not because we are used to living but because we are used to loving.” —Friedrich Nietzsche
1. An intense feeling of deep affection.
2. A great interest and pleasure in something.
Now that we know the definition of love, we know that love is such an important part of our lives. It’s such a special feeling. Have you ever heard of the saying “love conquers all”?
Love doesn’t have to be expressed only to your significant other. We show love daily to the things we love as well as family and friends. I know I do! These are some of the ways I express my love:
Nothing can be more damaging than living in the past. Or simply just not being engaged with a loved one. Be present in your relationships. This can mean putting the phone down or even clearing your own mind to be there for someone else. Try your best to enjoy every moment.
Lend an ear every once in a while. Sometimes people go through things and need someone to talk to. Be that person. When talking to someone, please try your best to actually listen. It sucks to feel like you aren’t being heard or understood. This is also the key to relationships.
According to Everyday Health, affection is more than just an emotion, it can be considered by some as a requirement in healthy relationships. In my personal opinion affectation is great but to a certain extent… aha! Good thing there are a ton of ways to do so (hugs, kisses, pounds, etc).
Random acts of kindness.
This is a great way to express your love and gratitude for someone. Or even just to put a smile on a random person’s face. This is also my favorite way. It only takes a few seconds to smile at someone or say hello. That alone can make someone’s day. I love to randomly leave little notes for my boyfriend so he has something to smile about when he least expects it!
Did you know that February 17th is Random Acts of Kindness Day?
