Love is patient, love is kind

by cameronculp

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.” “It (love) always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 4, 7-8

These words are so true and right on. Whether you are a Christian or not, these words from the Bible are something that can relate to all people. Love is patient, love is kind. Love can make it through anything, even if it takes time. As it says, love always hopes and perseveres. In a world where 50% of marriages end in divorce, these are powerful words to remember and live by. With all love and all relationships, there are problems. Some of these problems are small and some are much larger. We have to expect to have these because as humans, nobody is perfect. When two imperfect people come together to have a relationship, there are going to be imperfect times. No matter how hard both sides try to be perfect and do no wrong, it’s just simply not possible to have a “perfect” relationship. Because of this we need to strive to have a healthy relationship instead. A relationship where both people want it to work and will do everything to make it work is a healthy relationship. One where both people are willing to try and solve all problems, one where both learn to bite their tongues at time of anger and hurt, and one where neither person gives up on the love they have is a healthy relationship. Even after breakups, true love continues to love. Whether being apart for a week or years, true love always finds its way back. In a world full of violence, war, crime, hate, and so many other negatives, true love remains one of the most beautiful things to witness. Two people who are in love are happy people that glow because of the love they have. Its such a great thing to see, witness, and feel. If you’re in love and in a relationship, be sure to tell the other person how much you love, appreciate, and are thankful to have them in your life. Never surrender a chance to tell them that you love them. Life is short, unexpected, and not guaranteed so make sure you take advantage of all of your opportunities. If you are in love with someone that for whatever reason you are no longer with, read these quotes and act as they say. Love is patient so be patient with the person and give them whatever makes them happy, even if that requires you being away from them. Love is kind so keep your emotions under control and don’t say or do hurtful things just because you are sad or hurt. And remember that love never fails and always perseveres, so stay positive and hold on to hope. If it is meant to be it will happen, but you have to do all the right things to ensure a better chance of getting the person back. Until next time, love with all you have and take advantage of every opportunity with the one you love.
