Top 6 Definitions Of Love That Everyone Should Know

Top 6 Definitions Of Love That Everyone Should Know

People say love is pure, painful, sweet, and dreadful — all at once. The truth is, love is a basic necessity in everyone’s life. Everyone needs to be loved to live a proper and healthy life. Love has various definitions. Ask someone and they will give you their own definition of love. Love is a variety of feelings, emotions, and attitude. For some love is more than just being interested physically in someone, it’s an emotional attachment.

Love is more of a feeling that a person feels for another person. People often confuse love and lust. Love means to be deeply committed and connected to someone or something. The basic meaning of love is to feel more than liking towards someone. It is a bond that two people share.

There are a few things you need to avoid when building a new relationship like being too demanding. You need to understand that your partner had a life before you entered. You cannot ask them to give it up, the moment you entered. They have their priorities. Your partner cannot give you attention 24/7. Understand it, respect it. Don’t expect them to change their schedule completely for you.

1. Love is never rushing into relationships

    Give time to yourself and your partner. Take things slow. Know their likes and dislikes. Analyze that would you be willing to share a common bond in the following years. Every person has some habits that would be annoying to you. Think — would you be still sharing the same bond when you see the dark side of a person?

    2. Love is not being jealous

      There is no room for jealousy and possessiveness in cases where true love is really there. Being protective is a part of a relationship, but there should be a healthy understanding. Being too much involved can make the other person suffocated in the relationship. They may be having an ex with whom they share an understanding as a friend, but it didn’t work out when they were dating. That is the reason they moved on and now are with you.

      3. Love is giving yourself a chance

        Just because you both had a conflict in opinion about something doesn’t mean things won’t work out. Give yourself a chance. Your perception and your partner’s perception may differ. Sometimes, that is what makes life exciting!

        4. Love is to stop expecting

          Stop expecting doesn’t mean to give up on you. But do not expect your partner to do things exactly what you thought they would be doing. It is not right. Your expectations in your relationship may be different from what your partner’s expectation of you is. Respect the fact that they are a little different from you. The more you try to change a person and try to make them act according to you, the less attached they will be with you.

          5. Love is maintaining privacy

          privacy

            With social media readily available to share all your problems and people ready to jump to your rescue, we tend to discuss issues over the internet more than we do in person. Never do that. Maintain privacy in your relationship. Talk out the issues with your partner. Don’t use the platform of social media to complain about something that is wrong between you two. A little privacy to your relationship is required.

            6. Love is avoiding misunderstandings

            misunderstandings

              It is easy to have a misunderstanding when you have a conflict of opinion. Try to avoid it. Give a chance to let your partner put forward their point of view. If they are wrong, try talking to them about why you do think are they wrong. Don’t jump to conclusions and create a drama. This is very unhealthy to your relationship.

              Ultimately, love is accepting the other person for who they are.  Encouraging your partner to achieve their dream and respecting each other is true love. True love is a divine feeling that gives a feeling of being complete. It is worth fighting and taking efforts for each other. Love is being there for each other through the thick and thin.  Love cannot be defined in words but can be expressed through actions. Love is being someone’s strength and love can be found in small gestures.

              What Will Happen When You Surround Yourself With Positive People?

              What Will Happen When You Surround Yourself With Positive People?

              Ever since Norman Vincent Peale wrote his classic book The Power of Positive Thinking, many people have worked hard to harness the power of positivity. But one of the greatest challenges to maintaining positivity is that we live in a world focused on negativity. The news, social media, the office gossip, and pretty much everywhere else is filled with terrible events and complaining people.

              The truth is you can’t have a life of positivity while spending a lot of time with people who drag you down. The good news is that there is a simple solution! Surround yourself with positive people. When I started this habit I had some nearly immediate results…and some that will pay off further down the road. Here are 8 amazing things that will happen when you surround yourself with positive people.

              1. Your Attitude Will Change

              I love spending time with my positive friends! I get energized and excited. My attitude becomes one of confidence and peace. You will enjoy the same results.

              Time with negative people will affect your attitude negatively, but time with positive people will allow you to move through circumstances with a smile on your face.

              2. You Will Accomplish More

              I mentor a group of runners. I do my best to exude positivity whenever we are together. Do you know that those wonderful people will run longer and faster because they are being encouraged? They accomplish more than they thought possible because they are taught to believe they can. So will you!

              Having people who tell you that you can do more will make it so you actually will do more!

              3. You Will Make More Friends

              Think about your current group of friends. Out of all of them, which one has the most friends in their life? I’ll bet you’ll discover that your positive friends have way more friends than the negative people.

              Most of us love spending time with the person who is the life of the party…who is (not coincidentally) highly positive. Want more friends? Hang around positive people!

              4. You Will Make More Money

              Here is a practical effect of spending time with positive people. It’ll make you more money!

              As noted above, being with positive people makes you more positive. According to the Wall Street Journal, positive people make more money than average, but they make a LOT more than negative people.[1] The difference? 40%! That’s right, happy, positive people make around 40% more than negative people. Be positive to make more money.

              5. You Will Be Consistently Happy

              I want to note here that happiness is truly an internal attitude. This internal attitude is very manageable.

              Most of us go through life letting circumstances dictate our happiness. We live on autopilot, and our autopilot is usually negative. However, frequent exposure to positivity will move your default state toward the side of happiness.

              If you make a conscious change to keep positive people nearby as much as possible then you will be consistently happier.

              6. You Will Become a Magnet for Success

              You may have seen this before, but it’s so very true:

              “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn

              When you spend time with positive people, you become more positive. The result is people will want to spend more time with you. This becomes a snowball in your success.

              When people see how excited and enthusiastic you are about your business or work they will want to be a part of your vision. Your positivity will attract success like a magnet!

              7. You Will Become More Generous

              Examples from my positive friends inspire me to be more generous. So many of them have helped me that I want to give back. I love helping people with running, writing, speaking, improving their jobs, and becoming entrepreneurs. I love writing articles like this one. I write tens of thousands of words to help others because it’s just so much fun!

              When you are positive, helping people just becomes part of your nature. You will want to give and share, it won’t be an option, you’ll have a burning need to be generous.

              8. You Will Live Longer

              This is a big one. Your positive friends will rub off on you and help you live longer. According to Dr. David R. Hamilton, studies have shown that positive people live seven or more years longer than negative people![2]

              Positive people have fewer chronic health problems and are better at fighting off diseases. If you remember nothing else from this article, remember this: positivity affects how long you live.

              Final Thoughts

              Don’t just dump all of your negative friends, family and co-workers. That may be neither practical nor kind. But do make a conscious effort to limit time with them while increasing time with people who have a positive outlook. How much you help others, your success and even the length of your life are at stake.
