Love and Relationship

Love Is

7:54 AM



Love is a lot of things; it takes many forms, changes many lives, different for each individual.
At the end of the day though, love is still love.

There are many definitions of love from those who try to figure it out, but love is an enigma and it's better to leave it that way.

Here's one definition I came across with. Something which I think will make those who pretend they know love realize what it really is.


Love is the capacity to take care, to protect, to nourish.
If you are not capable of generating that kind of energy toward yourself- if you are not capable of taking care of yourself, of nourishing yourself, of protecting yourself- it is very difficult to take care of another person. 
In the Buddhist teaching, it's clear that to love oneself is the foundation of the love of other people. Love is a practice. Love is truly a practice.

- Thich Nhat Hanh
