What is Love Really?

Written by Faith M. Davis

Love in Sand PhotoLove is always on our minds in February, is it not? Valentine’s Day can make those who are in love feel it even stronger, and it can make those who aren’t in a relationship yearn for it even more. But love isn’t just about whether or not we are in a relationship. It’s not about what present we get on Valentine’s Day. What is love really?

Love is… happiness!

If you were to study people who have found true happiness in their lives, one thing you would notice is their ability to give love. These people have found the key to happiness, which is simply… love.

Love can turn a scared child into a happy child. Love can take down anger. Love can heal wounds. Love can overcome fear. Love can shine light on darkness.

Love is light. Love is the absence of fear. Love is… happiness.

Love sparks compassion. Love creates joy. Love is… happiness.

If you could choose only one thing to have in this lifetime, I hope you would choose love, because love can overcome anything. John Lennon was right when he said, “All you need is love.”

If we all shared more love, we would be a truly happy society. We wouldn’t feel the need to compete with one another and step on others’ toes. Instead, we would look to how we can help one another and how we can work together for the greater good.

When you are loved, does anything else really matter? Love will always find a way to get through the toughest of times. So, this Valentine’s Day and beyond, give as much love as you can. Don’t save it for just your significant other if you have one. Give love freely and openly.

The more you give love, the more you will receive love. Giving love is happiness and receiving love is happiness. Give it. Receive it. Love it. Be happy!
