While we sometimes have the urge to get philosophical and try to get down to the bottom of it, every attempt to explain love is just an effort to make sense of something much bigger and more powerful than all the words we try to piece together to represent it. Nobody will ever be enlightened by that mystery the same as you because they haven’t been in your shoes and lived out all of your experiences.
Never get too caught up with how to define something. All of us and our experiences are completely unique. Trying to mold our lives to fit a definition that we think sounds good on paper leaves little room for discovery and a very slim chance for success. Life is to be lived, not defined.
