Ten Things That Love Should NOT Feel Like…

Being in love has got to be one of the most amazing feelings ever…next to seeing your newborn son or daughter for the first time after labor (so I hear). That “in love” feeling is also amazing when you are loved back.

Well…now knowing what love is, I also know what love is not. I’m not an authority on the subject, but the heart will never lie to you.

Let’s go:

  1. Love should never make you feel fear.
  2. Love should not feel like a “chore”.
  3. Love should not be extremely hard or feel tough.
  4. Love should never make you feel as though you are alone.
  5. If someone loves you, you should never feel as though they just “don’t care”.
  6. Love should never place you in a state of confusion.
  7. Love never fails; if it’s hurting you, then it isn’t love.
  8. Love should never feel as though it isn’t supportive; love IS an anchor and something that grounds you, holding you steady in the midst of ANYTHING.
  9. Love should never make you question your decision TO love (deep)…AND FINALLY…
  10. LOVE NEVER LIES…

I won’t part my lips to say I Love You and not mean it…that’s the problem though; people say it, knowing full well that it’s empty and FAR from sincere.

Your best bet? Pray before you commit yourself to someone. Let God order your steps in a new or even a more seasoned relationship! You can even get better footing w someone if you have fallen off track, yet you all are on the same page, and willing to work at the relationship. Do the work BEFORE things go sour (if they ever do). Just make sure that you know that “flowers, bells, whistles, and candy” ALL of the time is not real. There will be disagreements, heated discussions, anger, etc., but love has the extreme and undeniable power to conquer any of those things. Just have enough sense to keep an open mind.

Take my poll and let me know if you agree w this post!

It’s all in fun though. I totally get it. I guess I was turned of from this play-frightful night when teens in my quiet, suburban neighborhood were beating little children w crowbars, and stealing their candy. I know, I know…not everyone operates in a fashion such as this, but it really turned me off from what used to be a fun night! My girls and I would get together and all go out, trick or treating (yes we were in high school lol); most of us had smaller siblings, and were responsible for taking them out (the horror right?) so we really didn’t mind. But once we started hearing the local news reports of the senseless violence, we stopped supporting the day. We were glad that we didn’t fall victim to the terror, and we were actually content w passing OUT candy. I also like the fact the villages are now setting hours FOR trick or treating for the kids. I’m all about the safety of the babies; I will be a Mom one day, and the LAST thing I want to do is rob my Lil darling from any fun due to my own personal fears.

But I challenge everyone to be safe! It’s definitely fun, if fun is done in decency and in order. No one should get hurt! Save some candy for me! ;0)
