Love

When I think of love is blind, I like to keep it that way. I think it’s because of the immense power in this word called love that notions such as ‘Love Is Blind’ came up.

 Sometimes we love someone so much that we start not to see their faults. When you love someone so much you start to overlook all the bad things they do and suddenly everything they do seems right.

I mean, someone can really have terrible flaws. One can be a liar, a thief or a cheat, but if you love them, you might not give attention to all these things because you have this strong connection, a strong bond with them.

So I really like to think that love is blind. But this is where I get to ask, do you want to be in a relationship where you are blinded by love, or you want to be in love and still be able to recognize someone faults and mistakes as the really are? Is love blind to you?

You see, the thing is, when you’re in love, there seems to be forces that do stuff on your behalf. The truth is, you can actually see the other person’s mistakes and flaws. You notice them and recognize them but because of what you feel deep inside, you choose to work through things and not give attention to your partner’s wrongs. That’s how Love Is Blind.

At the end of the day we’re all not perfect. We all do wrong things at some point in life. Because we all have imperfections, we choose to forgive and not focus on the flaws, but pay attention to the good in them.

Love

So I believe whether or not you choose, I think it’s not actually a choice because when you’re in love and it’s true, then for some reason, you will be forced to overlook the bad things your partner does.

When you love someone you keep forgiving them, you keep pardoning them because you just love them and love is just magical and powerful like that. It is a power that we have no control over.

No matter how much you try to remain composed, no matter how much you try to resist, if you fall, you will start doing things that you never did before, you will start doing things that you never thought you were capable of and then you will actually ask yourself, “Is this me? Am I doing all these things?”

 Love is such a strong and powerful emotion. It is actually a super power, I like to think of it as a super power, because the things that people have done for love and because of love are unimaginable.

Love has the power to change a lot of things in peoples lives, families, and nations. That is why I’m not surprised that Love is the greatest law.

I mean, for us Christian believers, love is the greatest law given by Jesus, the son of God. He commands us to love one another, He commands us to love our  neighbors as we  love ourselves.

This can affirm that Love Is Blind. I guess that is what happened with God too. I’m not trying to say God is blind because He definitely isn’t.

But I believe because He loved us so much and He still loves us so much, that is why every time we mess up He still forgives us. He brings us back home and says, “You are my daughter/son, I love you so much.

No matter how bad you hurt me or how many times you go wrong or how many times you sin. I’m going to forgive you I’m going to forgive you because I love you and because I want the best for you and I have planned the best for you.”

I believe that love is blind and is without condition. True love does not envy, it is not envious, it does not keep grudges. It is beautiful.

If you’d like to just understand more about this kind of love it is well explained in First Corinthians 13 in the Bible. That chapter explains perfectly well what love is, what it feels like and what true love should be like.

 This is my own understanding of what I know love is. I hope that you love someone today, I hope that you love someone tomorrow, and I hope that you get to experience love at this level and get to be loved without condition.

I hope that someone loves you with all the scars, flaws and imperfections.
