‘I love you’ means that I accept you for the person that you are, and that I do not wish to change you into someone else. It means that I will love you and stand by you even through the worst of times. It means loving you even when you’re in a bad mood, or too tired to do things I want to do. It means loving you when you’re down, not just when you’re fun to be with. ‘I love you’ means that I know your deepest secrets and do not judge you for them, asking in return that you do not judge me for mine. It means that I care enough to fight for what we have and that I love you enough not to let go. It means thinking of you, dreaming of you, wanting and needing you constantly, and hoping that you feel the same way for me.
Love and infatuation are both intense emotions that one feels for another person. Infatuation is often misinterpreted as Love. But the two feelings differ in their actuality of love, intensity and final outcome.
Infatuation – Infatuation is basically an affection or deep admiration over someone’s appearance or characteristics or sometimes both. An example of infatuation is crush – it can be one sided. The image in person’s mind can be quite different than the true picture.
Infatuation is temporary in life and goes off after some period. It is reckless commitment to satisfy one’s all consuming lust. It takes off fast and furious like a spark in dry grass, burns out quickly and can leave feelings of emptiness. Infatuation is delusional, not real.
Love – ❤️ Love, on the other hand, is the most powerful emotion known by humankind. It is mutual, extreme feeling build on the foundation of trust where you are wiling to do anything for the person you love, no matter how painful.
Love is a gradual process and happens over time. It is unconditional and real. Love is faithfulness, loyalty, confidence, willingness to make sacrifices for another. Working at settling differences. Able to compromise so that either both win or at least give the other person’s opinion a chance. Requires a lot of selflessness. It will deepen with the passage of time.
So there is no such thing as “Love at first sight”. With passing time you will get to know weather it is love, lust or just Infatuation. Self love is the best way to attract true love. Love yourself with all your heart, for who you are and for who you are not. If you don’t have love for yourself, you can’t expect to get it from someone else. True love allows you to be yourself and never ask you to change. True love is not about finding your completeness in another person but rather about sharing your completeness with them fully in order to grow and expand more and more each day.
Do share your thoughts about Love vs. Infatuation!
This Is What Happens When You Fall In Love With Life, Instead Of A Person
“Who is that one person you really love?”
How long will you take before you take your name?
Falling is love is one of the most beautiful feelings in the world and more so when you fall in love with your life. Finding the right partner isn’t the only thing life revolves around. There are so many things to be passionate about besides a person – music, literature, photography, writing and so on. When you fall in love with your life, you become responsive to your passions. Your life becomes more about exceling at your passions and enjoying your job. Being productive is one of the key factors to a happy and fulfilling life.
When we are in love with someone we tend to focus all our energy and invest all our time into that one relationship and we forget that other relationships in our life are as much important. When you are focused on things other than your love life, you will automatically invest in your family and friendships which fill your life with happiness and love. You will end up making a solid support system in your family and friends.
Falling in love with your life means that falling in love with yourself. You will walk away from people and situations that drain you. You start paying more attention to what helps you grow and bloom as a person. You don’t let the negativity around you, be it in the form of people or situations, affect you. As such, you now know how to zone out and come back to your original happy and peaceful self after a stressful situation.
Most importantly, your happiness is not dependent on a person, which I think is a very important thing to help you lead a happy life. When you are happy with yourself and your life, you won’t need people to make you happy. You will know how to create happiness, which is an amazing quality to exhibit.
And lastly, you don’t wait for the perfect moments to make you happy, you make the best of every moment for you believe that happiness doesn’t lie in the big things of life, but is hidden in those small little pleasures arranged in a chronological order.
So, love yourself enough to fall in love with the life you live for only then you will be nothing less than the best of you.
