The Art Loving Freely

“How can you love fully, if your heart is too afraid to tell the ones you love?”

 

What the world will say, what the people will think, what they will think, how they’ll judge you, the conclusion they’ll reach about you, the way they’ll feel about you, is not your concern. How someone else perceives your emotions are not your concern. To be in love, to express love, to feel love, you must love freely. Be it your brother, sister, mother, father, your friend, your partner, whatever the relationship, they way you feel love and express love is the same. The type of love might be a little different, just as unconditional love is different for different people.

To be in love, to express love, to feel love, you must love freely.

You must say what’s in your heart, irrespective of what others may think.  If you aren’t hurting someone, directly or indirectly and your conscience is clear, then you have the right to love.

People don’t express love freely because of many reasons. People often stop themselves because they worry that if someone knew how they feel about them, they may value them lesser. Well, if that’s how you feel, maybe you’re not loving the right person. If the person you feel for, may change their opinion about you, because of how you feel then either you’re not giving them a chance to show you otherwise or, they aren’t the ones for you.

Sometimes, people hold back, because of fear of rejection. What if the person in front doesn’t feel the same way? Well, honestly, is it fair to love only if you get love in return? Is it fair to assume that love always ought to be a two-way road? Sometimes it is, sometimes not really. But you’d rather have tried than be left wondering.

Sometimes people don’t express themselves due to fear or the unknown. They don’t know how one would react. How they themselves would react. They fear what they don’t know, but if you don’t know what is there to be scared of? Being vulnerable is common. It’s scary, but it’s human.

Sometimes people hold back because they don’t know what else to do. Well, text the person, meet up for food, watch a movie together and if you still feel the same way about them after that, let them know how you feel.

Sometimes people hold back because they don’t know what else to do.

We’ve become so used to hating freely, we’ve lost the will to love openly. Change that. One day at a time, one person at a time, Remind your loved ones that you love them. Call them up, send a text, or even a facebook message. Because you never know, they too, might be holding back the will to love freely and openly.

One day at a time, one person at a time, Remind your loved ones that you love them

Love,
