500 Words On LOVE

Love a little more, fear a little less

With Valentines day just passing, love is still lingering the air. Love is such a unique, beautiful yet confusing feeling. Love holds more power than any person or any object can ever have. It comes in so many different forms, and most of the time – love is unexpected.

Although people use the word love on a daily basis, what truly is love? To each person, love is different. Some people rarely use the word love, allowing it to hold so much sentimental value. Others, throw it around, letting the people around them know they are loved. Love has the ability to control humans, it controls our feelings, actions and thoughts. When you love someone, you are willing to do anything for them. Love creates a bond that will always remain, even if the love dissapears. Love is the reason people get butterflies or blush when they see someone. One does not need to say 'I love you' to get the point across. There are so many different ways that say the same thing, 'let me know when you're home safe', 'I miss you', 'Are you okay?'. Love is caring for someone more than you care for yourself.

Although love is typically centered around two people in an intimate relationship, it also is a huge part of all human to human connections. Your bestfriend wouldn't be your best friend if you didn’t love them. You have to love a person in general in order to create the bond that contains trust and happiness. The reason losing a best friendship is just as emotionally draining as a boyfriend or girlfriend is because of the love that is in the relationships. Love forces to people to work on each other individually and together.

Society tends to think that when love is only between two people within an intimate relationship. However, love is interwoven into basically every situation. You love places, people, colors, clothes and so much more. However, there are different types of love. Loving a color is nowhere near the same feeling that one gets if they love another person, but that does not mean it is not as important. Everyone loves a certain vacation spot, that they feel happiest at. Maybe it is the beach, or a mountain full of snow. Wherever it is, you love it because you feel comfort and happiness there, that is love. The act of loving an object or thing is the smile one gets when they see their favorite place or gets to wear their favorite shirt. Little moments like that, where one becomes happy over something so simple is love.

To love is knowing one feeling in a cloud of confusion. Love is confusing, exciting, complicated and scary all wrapped into one. There is nothing that can compare to the feeling of love burning in ones stomach and the unlimited happiness that results in love. Whether you love a person, object or thing, the greatness of the feeling is all the same.

The concept of having "a person" was first introduced by "Grey's Anatomy," and took off faster than I'm sure the writers expected. For a lot of us, our person is far away. Here are some things that happen when this is you and your person:

1. You will have separation anxiety right off the bat.

2. You get irrationally jealous when they post a picture with someone else.

3. You literally text each other about everything, and I mean everything.

4. You know better than to call them if you have less than an hour to talk.

5. You stalk their Instagram so you still feel like a part of their life.

6. All your school friends know who they are because you're constantly telling stories about them.

7. When you come home for breaks they're usually the first person you see.

8. They're also usually the last person you see.

9. Your Snapchat streak is abnormally high.

10. You tell them you love them more than your significant other.

11. You send an average of 400 texts to each other in one day.

To my person, I love you no matter the distance! Thanks for always being there for me.

Thank You, To The Women Who Loved My Boyfriend Before Me

I don't know who taught you to be the way you are, but I am thankful for them.


I am so thankful for the women who loved you. Whether they were flings or long-term relationships, I am thankful for them.

I am thankful for the girl you dated in high school who broke your heart for the first time and I am thankful for the girls you fantasized about in your college classes. These women did nothing wrong. They were new to the dating world just like you and maybe you both honestly thought it would work out in the long run, but I am so happy they didn't.

The women before me loved you.

They helped you learn how to love someone. They taught you how to express feelings and the value of being held.

They helped you through brokenness I never could've and expanded your views of the world.

All the good and bad in those relationships help you and I have the relationship we have now. I'm not saying being your partner is always easy, sometimes we argue or get on each other's nerves.

However, you come at every situation with compassion and laughter. I don't know who taught you to be the way you are, but I am thankful for them.

I'm most thankful for your mom.

I haven't met her, although one day I hope to, she created you. She raised you to be the person you are today.

You are authentic, grounded, compassionate and driven. You are the most selfless person I have met and I know you got that from watching your mother be the same way.

You have this way of being vulnerable and elegant, even when we dance like robots in the kitchen. Your joy fills our home and all I know is that if I want to be with someone, its someone like that.

Thank you, to the females who were before me, you helped form the man I adore.
