People have written about love. People have lost lives for it. Like others, I have fallen in love as well. But what I have witnessed is different from what people have written, spoken, or made a movie.
There is no boundary, limitations, bucket list, or checklist. Love comes with freedom and trust. I see people becoming control freaks or possessive and call it love. You cannot cage someone or control them and in love. Also, love cannot distract or affect you from your daily, day-to-day life. It is part of you, not something external force-fed.
If you love someone, you need to set them free. You should not dictate your terms or let them dictate you. It suffocates both actors. The relationship ends up being robotic and toxic.
Both parties need to live, accompany and contribute to their success by being together in it. Lastly, love is not what media, marketers, advertisers are selling us all day.
