Shakespeare wrote “But love is blind and lovers cannot see. The pretty follies that themselves commit.” It’s such a romantic quote and might have been true also. But in today’s world do people still believe in it? Love might have been blind, deaf and maybe dumb too, a few years ago, but in now it’s a different story. Nobody wants to fall in love without analyzing the situation. Love comes with preconceived notions today. He/She should be good looking, smart, successful, romantic, with an amazing sense of humor and when they meet someone, they try to see if the person has these qualities. And if these qualities are not there, then why bother to waste time with that person? Isn’t love enough? Are these qualities so important that a person’s heart comes second after them? Is it due to modernization of the society or is it that people have become more practical?
Have you ever watched a friend in love do things they vowed never to do? It's like they are in another world! I have found love to be blind because it is neutral! It doesn't see your faults. It doesn't judge you. It only knows what's in your heart.
Yet, that's a good thing! Imagine love having stipulations on how one should love. Wouldn't that be weird? That's what millions of people do each day! Well I truly believe with Shakespeare, for me love is blind, deaf, and dumb. Yes love to me is blind, love has no eyes, love has no face, love has no body or breath in it's lungs, love is not a living thing, it can't have living characteristics....so yes, it is extremely blind.
To me, love comes from the heart, and not the eyes. I have fallen in love, without initially meeting him...sounds crazy? To me it doesn’t, because I truly believe in the man I love. I can see him beyond race, religion, physical imperfections. When I look into the eyes of my love, I can only see beauty looking back at me. My love for him has gone deep into my soul, and the soul has no visible image. Love is a small word, but this single word has the depths of oceans, the heights of skies, the heat of fire and the whole beauty of nature, reflected by the word “Love". Blind love to me, is not bound to the walls of any religion, sect, status, class or greed. It is a blind faith; it is love with a soul. And when souls do love each other too, the love intensifies.
“When a person loves you, the love makes you glow and glaze, you start
admiring yourself in the light of the love."
For me,I knew I was in love and not a fantasy.....with someone, I knew years back. He was the reason that I spent my whole life knowing what Love was and trying to find the good in every bad relationship.... I realized right then that he still had my heart and no matter what he has done or I've done in my life, I Love Him With Everything My heart Beats For.... So is Love blind? I would say so, but not because it can’t see, it’s because it chooses to see the better of the one it’s attached to... While at that same instant, accepting the bad things as if it was just your child making the everyday mistakes in life that they are destined to make....Love being blind does not cause people to go through or stay in difficult and unhappy relationships. It's the individual who allows themselves to stay that cause the problems. To see that I was in love, I didn’t have to consult hotlines to Love and Happiness, or use the various love applications on Face book. But instead, it started with loving me as well... How can you expect anyone else to Love you, if you don't even Love your own self? And this was the first lesson I learnt from the man I love. Love is blind because love is an act of faith I have for him. I have fallen in love with not what I saw outside, but actually learnt to grow in love.
Love is blind!The answer is simple yet difficult. All you have to do is trust love and go with the flow. Things may not go the way you would like. However, that doesn't mean you will not end up at your destination (i.e., married, in love, with children, happy, etc.)
All I'm asking you to do is give love a chance to show the way before you decided to take control!
Finally, if your way was such a good
way why is it you are still searching for love? Obviously, something is missing!
Love is waiting! Are you ready?
