What can you do for love?

Is this what love is about?

Is this what love is about?


Love is an emotion which makes us do a variety of things which we may not always do. From surprising them with gifts to taking them out to an expensive restaurant; from doing things that evoke nostalgic memories of the times gone by to just giving them a call to express how much they are missed and loved, all of us do all this and more to keep our loved ones happy and smiling.

There are many who commit suicide in the name of love thinking that they will become martyrs of love evoking comparisons with Romeo and Juliet, Heer Ranjha and the likes. To be honest, I find ‘dying for love’ as a cowardly step. Don’t these people think about their families? Don’t they have the ability to convince their elders? Don’t they realize the preciousness of life? Is suicide the answer to anything?

There are those who have it in them to let go for love. Consider a scenario: You realize that you are having a medical condition and won’t survive for long. There’s someone who makes your world go round with love and happiness. What do you do? Start ignoring her and leave the city and go? Or spend the last few days of your life with happiness? While it’s easy to let go in the reel world, I feel that it becomes really difficult to do the same in the real world.

It takes a lot of courage and strength to let go of your love since you realize that togetherness isn’t written in your destiny because of medical conditions, parents not agreeing and so on and so forth.

There are those who let go their passions and personal lives in the name of love and togetherness. Whether its leaving or changing jobs, letting go their passions (maybe painting, blogging, drawing etc.), forgetting old friends since they don’t get any time to catch up, so many of us tend to go through this phase and resign ourselves to this fate and move on.

Is it right? Should we actually get so busy that we don’t have time for what we loved and appreciated at one point in time? Aren’t good friends equally important as finding understanding partners in love? It’s all easy to say that there’s no time for anything. It’s just that we need to make an effort to take out some time from our busy schedules. Moreover, the partners should be understanding.

And last but not the least, there are those who believe that love means doing sweet and simple things like cooking his or her favourite dish, going for a walk to the seaside, making a customized card for her birthday among others.

Love is all about sharing and giving between individuals. One can’t have different expectations for the different partners.

    This post makes sense. I really agree with your view regarding ppl who commit’s a coward act of the highest order

      Oh surely it is. Love is not about just giving up your life. But instead it’s about trying to convince your parents and people who matter about the depth of your relationship and the reason you want to stay with each other for life.

  2. I can so relate to the ideas voiced here

  3. Great post and yes, suicide is the most selfish and foolish act, no matter the reason behind that. Love is a powerful feeling and the most divine 😉

  4. I totally agree with you here. Letting go requires more courage and strength than anything else especially when you are so deeply in love with the other person.
