If you believed in this phrase and or already told it to someone, how can you be so sure that you will love that person forever knowing that you don’t know what the future holds?
Seriously, a lot of couple keeps telling this on each other, but as soon as they fight and the conflict cannot seem to re-mediate anymore, they ended up separating. Some couple resolves the problem while some does not. You can see those couple, who decided to separate with each other, having different partners after a few months or years if the other one is too affected by the breakup (which actually happens).
The common reason why we said these words to our beloved is because of our current emotional feelings towards him/her. The sudden emotional burst which hypnotizes one to said something without having a careful thought. Love as an emotion may affect our reasons and decisions and being in love is the ultimate hypnosis we can give and receive. We set no boundaries just for the sake of loving and being loved. They said that love is blind, that’s why we accept the other no matter whom or what he/she is. This seems to be true in most cases and this proves how strong we indulge in the power of love.
Loving someone forever may seem impossible for others. Because along the way their feelings may fade so is love. But don’t get mistaken, love is different from feelings. Feelings fade and love doesn’t. It’s just a matter of interpretation of one’s definition of love since a lot refers love as feelings which shouldn’t be. Other people said that their love for their partner faded already. Asking themselves what should they suppose to do?
It is better to keep in mind that love is a “verb”. If you find your love to your partner fading away, it is a good chance to love him/her again. Start loving your partner. Acknowledge, affirm, understand, accept, appreciate, recognize, consider, sympathize, believe, and trust him/her. That’s what love is all about. It is an action word.
For those who refer love as feelings, it is impossible to love your partner forever, but you can love your partner over and over. Loving is a responsible act. Telling your partner that you love him/her forever is not enough. You must reflect your words. Love means to commit oneself without guarantee. To give oneself completely in the hope that your love will produced love to your partner.
Forever isn’t just a word, but a place. A place where two people journey to. So when love sends you there, don’t just say “forever.” Be there.
