I think that love is one of the most beautiful feelings a person can experience. So what is this feeling, which is not the first century, singing laudatory songs and sending all sorts of curses?
I think a person can not live happily without love. It is multi-faceted. We love parents, children, husbands and wives, friends – and everyone in different ways, in a special way. But to whom we feel this feeling, true love always means understanding, respect, willingness to help, protect, the ability to sacrifice for the sake of a loved one.
The power of love lies in the fact that it awakens a reciprocal feeling, heals the soul, is able to save life. This is the state of a person when his soul is most open to the supreme principles of good, truth and beauty. He who loves, not only demands, but also gives, not only craves pleasures, but is also ready for the highest achievements of self-denial. True love is also an expression of creativity, it involves care, respect, responsibility.
Love is an important part of a person’s life. We become what we think. To love someone or something, you must first respect him. But, first of all, you need to respect yourself, because if you do not love and do not respect yourself, it is very difficult to love and respect others. You need to learn to accept yourself, appreciate yourself, no matter what others think or say about you.
It seems to me that we create love ourselves – this is not the result of fate or luck. Each of us has the ability to love and be loved. Love must be learned. True love will overcome everything, cover everything, forgive everything. Love is, probably, when you love and the shortcomings of another person. If a person seems to be beautiful, intelligent, talented – this is not necessarily love. It’s another matter if you know and love the shortcomings that he has. However, it is worth paying attention to the statement about the love of VG Belinsky: “Love is often mistaken, seeing in the beloved object that which is not, but sometimes only love and opens in it the beautiful or the great that is
inaccessible to observation and the mind.” That is, the power of love is manifested in the fact that it can open the dignity of a person, awaken in him something beautiful.
Love gives birth to an irresistible desire to do good deeds in us. The whole world around the man in love seems beautiful and significant. Everyday business becomes important and even enjoyable and is carried out with some special ease. No wonder love is considered the elixir of life – it awakens the hidden powers of man.
Of course, true love can bring mutual love. But in life it does not always happen that way. People, once feeling the pain of love, believe that it brings only pain and should be avoided. According to unrequited love, they judge love in general – “it is better not to love and not suffer” … But is it so good – to live “half”?
Love is a feat, a sacrifice, the peak of the development of the human soul. One of the facets of this feeling – the love of a man and a woman – is embodied in a variety of creations of the human spirit, praised by writers and poets, composers and artists, directors and actors. Love is the eternal source of inspiration.
A monument to such omnipotent love is the beautiful and sad story of Romeo and Juliet – young lovers, who, through the power of their feelings, overcame seemingly the most insurmountable – hatred, enmity and even death itself.
In Russian literature, you can also find many works singing the hymn of eternal love. So, the pathos of the Pushkin poem “I loved you…” – a light sadness about eternal love and the impossibility of happiness with the beloved. The lyrical hero is noble, unselfish. He timidly hopes that love, perhaps, has not completely faded away, but renounces its happiness for the sake of the well-being of a beloved woman.
In the novel “Master and Margarita” Bulgakov main heroine of her own free will sold her soul to the devil. The spirit of evil helped her to take revenge on the offenders of her lover. And before Margarita, without hesitation, refused, for the sake of happiness with the Master, from a secure, quiet life with her husband.
And yet, love can not be deciphered, does not have an exact definition. Love is the most complex, mysterious and paradoxical reality that a person encounters. And not because it is usually believed that from love to hatred only one step, but because “neither calculate nor calculate” love can not be! In it you can not be prudent – nature easily overturns any calculations! In it you can only be sensitive to follow its whimsical current and in time to guess all its bends, imperceptible for the eye of displacement, inexplicable sometimes for reason turns. In love, it is impossible to be petty and incompetent – it requires generosity and talent, the gaze of the heart, the breadth of the soul, a kind, subtle mind and much more than the abundance of nature has provided us and that we waste and blunt in our vain life.
This high, life-affirming feeling is of tremendous power. Love is a feeling of unity. True love. it’s fun! It. giving and receiving joy.
