Lesson 1: There is a time for love. When we aren’t ready for it or when we are indiscriminate about whom we give our love to, it can destroy us. But when we are ready and when love is reciprocated, the lovers will be delighted in what they see in one another.
Love is not something to be rushed into. It cannot be demanded. It cannot be bought. It cannot be ignored nor neglected. Love is not to be taken lightly. Love is a responsibility. It’s strong, harsh, consuming and eternal. It’s unquenchable and indestructible. Love is a committment. It is not a promotional sales or purchasing opportunity to be celebrated once a year. It’s a way of life or a way to death. There’s no escaping it. Love is to be lived fully or you will come to believe life is not worth living.
