I read a girl’s blog a few days ago where she asked a question “IS LOVE ENOUGH”, this got me thinking, but as my friend says when it comes to issues of the heart it is always a delicate matter. So having that in mind, I have decided to give more than a YES/ NO answer….
First of all, on reading the question it came with a lot of characteristics to consider in a loving relationship like; trust, respect, importance of partners opinion, accountability, honesty & good communication, partner should be great with your family & friends, partner should be able to share your dream or at least support them, and finally, the person must be good in bed (lol, this was all extracted from the blog).
So my answer to the question is YES!!! YES, LOVE IS ENOUGH and I’d explain why…
Love can be described as a deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness.
Love is the strongest emotion the human body would ever experience. I said body because when you are in love with someone, you can actually feel it in your fingers, that little smile that makes your hair stand, that’s love. Love is as good as any emotion can be.
According to my bible “love covers multitude of sin”. This is to state that when you are actually in love with someone, you tend to ignore the persons wrongs. You are in love with someone because you think the person completes you, you are in love with someone because you think you can make he/she better or vice versa.
We fall in love with people not for what we can collect from them but above all; it’s for what we can give to them.
Love is the reason we argue in a relationship, and then wake up the next day, forgetting we ever argued.
For me, Love is all I need in a relationship… People talk about flaws in a relationship (as if we are not human, we all make mistakes), but if you love truly, you’d stick around to correct the wrongs. There are people that have been married for 70 years, there is no magic towards that, but rather as human beings, we get hot headed & irritated sometimes but as long as we don’t take drastic actions in those moments, I promise you love is enough (in every relationship you need to make an effort, and you can only make required effort depending on the love you have..).
Most of us don’t know what love is, because we have shared what we are/were ought to keep for a loving relationship, (I know I’m going to get a lot of stick for this but *in chipmunks voice* who cares, lol)
Things like sex have lost its value, and if you are talking about a loving relationship without sex, it won’t work but if you are talking about a loving relationship after you’ve had numerous sex partners, it still won’t work… Or it might… Who knows….
P.s: Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.
Love never fails.
Love is more than enough to last any relationship
