Evaluation on Love.

We all wonder what love is, and no one really has an exact answer. No one does. It's because we all have different opinions on it based on what we see, experience, and feel. I've never experienced love [as in relationships] because I've never been in one. I really don't plan to in high school anyways. But I've realized love can bring a lot of things together. Like the song, All You Need is Love by the Beatles. Isn't it true? If everyone learned to love.... we'd have more respect, affection, and consideration for one another, because when we do love... we truly care. Wouldn't love prevent a lot of chaos, troubles, and arguements? Especially the wars and current events that are happening in today's world. But nowadays, love is considered a "corny" thing to most people. Some smirk at the thought of love and aren't willing to open up to others. Some are scared of it because they are aware that hardships are involved. But overall, I don't think love is a bunch of nonsense. Without love from my parents, friends, and support systems... I wouldn't be the person I am today. I believe good things such as love, are worth the price of overcoming hardships and obstacles.


All quotes from Erica Jong

"You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back.”

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief...and unspeakable love.”

“Falling in love with someone isn't always going to be easy... Anger... tears... laughter.. It's when you want to be together despite it all. That's when you truly love another. I'm sure of it.”

“I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out.”

“Immature love says: 'I love you because I need you.'
Mature love says: 'I need you because I love you'”

"Love is everything it's cracked up to be…It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. "

Love is something I will never be able to fully comprehend. It's expressed in so many ways, and it all depends on the type of connection you have with the individual. It's so complicated, and can drastically take control over one's life, to the point where they commit suicide. But even though love can cause scars, tears, and immense pain, I believe it's very essential in everyday life. It's something every human being needs to be able to survive, be positive, or even endure hardships. Knowing that someone cares, thinks of you, and is able to support you not only gives people a sense of belonging, but gives a bigger reason why life is worth living for. Whether it is a simple hug in the hallways, or a confession to that special someone, love always brings happiness and warmth to everyone. It is also something that people should never push aside or avoid, because it just.... happens, at the right time. People say that love can make you feel angry, sad, happy, and exhilarated. It can make you feel anything, but at the same time builds immense character. It's something every person in this world will go through. All in all, I think love is a beautiful thing, and will always be welcomed everywhere you go. It's just one of those things that can make people's day, and brighten up the room.
