My Lesson On Love!

Love

 

Last night I had a real heart to heart conversation about love. A person shared with me that they get in trouble whenever a person falls in love with them. So of course I asked, what do you mean by that? They responded that whenever folks fall in love, there is a level of expectation that is created. And when they begin to do things “out of love”, they expect the same in return. This conversation actually had me in my thoughts all night and all morning. Asking myself, “do you actually know the true meaning of love?” and “do you honestly know how to truly love?” To be completely honest I don’t know that I ever did or ever have. And if I did, I don’t believe it was to the extent at which I define love now.

I truly believe the act of love is what 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 tells us in the bible. That love is patient and kind. It does not envy or boast. It is not arrogant or rude and it does not insist on its own way. It’s not irritable or resentful and it does not rejoice at wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things and endures all things. I’ve read these verses so many times before but it was not until last night that I actually let the words sink into my spirit. All I can say is WOW!

When I think of God’s love for me it reminds me that he paid a debt that I can never repay. When he gave his life for me there were no expectations for me to give my life in return. It was only to follow his commandments and love others just as much as he loves me. Love is truly a self-less act. It is to give and to expect nothing in return. I believe when there is no level of expectation there is no level of disappointment.

In my opinion, this is probably the realist and most heartfelt post I’ve ever written. And it’s probably a post that I will use for accountability purposes now and forever. I will end with these words: Lord my wish is that I can truly learn what it means to love wholeheartedly . To not set a limit on my love. To not keep score. To set an example of how I wish to be loved. To love others the way you love me. To love others despite what they say or do. Ultimately, to love unconditionally!

To Commit or Not To Commit…

 

Image

Ok so I’ve never had to deal with a man not committing to me. Probably because I’ve always made myself clear about wanting to eventually be in a relationship. However, if I’m just casually dating a man I don’t bring up the ‘r’ word. I just enjoy what we’ve made it. It was funny to come across this article written by Madame Noire about signs that point to why your man will never commit. Here they are:

 

  1. He NEVER gets jealous
  2. He is rigid about his schedule
  3. He doesn’t invite you, when other girlfriends went
  4. He has a lot of activities he keeps to himself
  5. He won’t fight with you
  6. He won’t accept help from your family
  7. He tells you he’s made big decisions; he doesn’t ask you
  8. He wanders off at social events
  9. He’s pushy about sex
  10. He has excuses not to do you favors

 

Madame Noir provides an explanation for each reason and also mentions why most women ignore these reasons. And I had to chuckle at a few of them. Probably because I’ve had to deal with a few myself 🙂 But in all honesty I guess I would feel some kind of way if the guy I’m dating didn’t get jealous (reason # 1) if I was pushing up on some other man or if I mentioned how cute/handsome/fione (yes I said fione instead of fine lol) another man was. But jealousy isn’t for everyone so that reason didn’t constitute as a sign for me. Matter of fact I didn’t think a lot of these reasons were signs that he wouldn’t commit. Reasons # 5 and # 6 both seem like they can be character traits not necessarily reasons why he won’t commit. However, reasons # 2 and  # 3 (in my opinion) are legit. If his schedule is too rigid to make time/room for you there’s a problem. And if there are ‘couples’ outings, he’s in attendance and you aren’t invited as his plus 1…umm trust me he’s probably not interested in committing. You can decide for yourself if the other reasons hold any weight.

 

What are your thoughts? Especially to the men…I’m curious to know if some of you actually agree with this list. We all can guess that this article was probably written by a woman. 🙂 Leave your comments and thoughts below!

Love Is Such A Beautiful Thing!

In less than a month, two of my good friends will stand before God, their family and friends and officially become husband and wife! I think I’m most excited because I’ve seen them grow from friends, to best friends, a couple and now husband and wife. Nowadays it’s hard to see two people get married and stay married. These two were meant for each other. They don’t brag about how much they love each other it just shows! In the way they carry themselves and in their actions towards each other. Of course no relationship is perfect but when two people are willing to put their differences aside and still love each other despite those differences it’s simply beautiful and amazing. I cannot wait to celebrate with them on their special day! Congratulations again and may God continue to bless your lives as you two grow old together!  🙂
