What Does Love Mean to You

by James R. Yarbrough

 

It Is How You Think

There are way too many out there who are confused by the thought of love and easily fall prey to its allure. When you are weak, the sound you hear may not be so clear. You hear what you want to hear and see what you want to see, not what you should. You cannot love someone who does not love you. How could you. That is not how true love works.

If hurt comes to you from what I do, what I have for you is not love. And what you have for me it is not what it is thought to be. There are many things that love is not, and only one that it is. There is no substitute for where love should be. You cannot buy it, you cannot sell it and you cannot create it on your own. The source must be compatible with the need. Love cannot overcome what does not fit. You must feel love for you, to love me. You cannot be in love when you do not know what love is.

Call it what you will, but love and hurt cannot be joined: they are opposites and these opposites to a clear thinking person will not attract. You do not hurt the one you love, and you cannot love the one who hurts you. You are being fooled by your own mind. Am I talking to you, yes I am. The things you lead yourself to believe have no end. Love does not hurt. When love is not there, the place where you want love to be will not be left empty. There is no space in your mind that is not occupied. Other feelings will fill its place, but it will not be love. There is no substitute for where love should be.

Who are you when you shed your “armor?” It is the real you and you can only hide from who you are for so long. I will not be true in what I do, if you are not true in what you do, to me. If I think I love you, and you have not told the truth, then my love is a lie.

Are you really happy in the life you are living? Can you really be your Self? If not now, when. Do you let the one you love know just how you feel? These are questions only you have the answers to. It is now time, to tell the truth. For the one you love just may have something to say to you.
