Noun. An intense feeling of deep affection.
Love – the sweetest, most charming word in our dictionary. A time when you feel safe and protected, like we have superpowers, and there is nothing that can stop us.
It starts with exchanging words, messages, attention, and with a perfect match that can develop into love. Love – state of mind where you would do much more for your loved one than for anyone else… Where you have great sympathy for that person and you refuse to accept that they could be the wrong one for you or, even worse, don't have the same kind intentions as you. This is love.
They don't say “love is blind” for no reason. Our denial, an unwillingness to see what is happening in front of us, is our emotions and mind playing with us – when we don't want to admit that something isn’t right just because we feel loved and we don't want to ruin this moment. It's funny just how much we’re willing to overlook in order to maintain this feeling—a feeling of love. It's almost like being addicted to drugs: an addict needs his fix, we need love. And it can be deadly in both cases. We hear a lot about domestic violence, but more or less we just shake our heads and think, “thank god it's not someone I know.”
But what would you do if that was someone you knew – would you again shake your head and do nothing? Or would you give the abused person a hand and help them to get away from a violent partner?
