The Best Things about Being In Love

Thu, Jan 28, 2010


Love–it has inspired millions of people throughout history. If you go back to famous art and literature of the past, most of it is inspired by love, whether by its tragedy or its joys. Love sparks a great rush of emotion in any human being’s life. It gives people a reason to live; it inspires and motivates. They say all things grow with love, whether it’s watering your plants or spending quality time with your loved one.

What’s so great about falling in love, anyway?

The best thing about being in love for me is that it brings color and excitement to life. Most of us have had that feeling before, and it’s something that can give you a million reasons to live. Being in love makes you live outside of yourself, living and pleasing another individual to find your own happiness. Love also teaches us how to be more giving and make sacrifices. More than often we will go out of our way just to make our special someone happy. In their happiness, we accomplish our own happiness as well.

Love is also known to have the power to change the most unchangeable of people. We hear many stories about so and so being like this in the past and suddenly changing for the better. I used to know a guy who was the real scrubby type; he had no concern of how he looked or acted in front of others, whatsoever. This changed when he fell in love. We would usually see him all cleaned up, a lot more courteous to people, and other things.

I also know a guy who never had a romantic bone in his body. He was typically one of the boys; someone you would never think of falling in love. He did change, and this change came from someone he just met a few months back.

Love can’t be measured, but it can definitely be seen or felt. It is also so powerful that it not only affects the people directly involved, but the people around them as well.

Have you ever lost your best friend to another person because they were in love? It does hurt, but if you think more about it, you couldn’t really complain about it since you can see for yourself that your friend is having the time of his life.

When in love, you find more of yourself through another person. You find satisfaction in being with them, pleasing them, doing things together. The challenge of love is trying to have two totally different people live in unison with each other. If this is accomplished, then you have sacrificed yourself, your whole being, your whole humanity, all for someone else. This starts to evolve as you start to learn how to live for others, as it becomes a lifetime commitment for you.

When you start to have a family, you learn how to live for your children, and as they grow older, your responsibilities grow even more. It gets difficult, but it’s very satisfying when accomplished. This is what love teaches us, self sacrifice.

As you go back to history, you will notice that millions of men and women have died in the name of love. Some people have died for the love of their country; others have died for their love in their beliefs. Some people have given up their lives for the people they love. This is the greatest thing we can learn from love.

The best thing about it is that, it is not something you think about before you do, but something more of an impulse, a feeling, an emotion. This is much more powerful than all the teaching taught in the history of mankind.

I can say that the best thing about being in love is that it expands our humanity. It makes us complete, and that is what being human is really about. Not living for your own existence, but being a part of something much bigger. “I” becomes “you,” your erroneous zones of selfishness and greed start to deteriorate as you learn how to live for others. This is the best thing that love has to offer. And the wonderful thing about it is that loves comes back to you, inspiring you to love and give more. It’s a process that leads to the perfection of the human spirit.
