What is the definition of love? Dictionary dot com says, a profoundly tender affection for another person. A feeling of warm personal attachment for a parent, child, or friend. A person towards whom love is felt.
Those are all correct and nowhere in that sentence does it mention gender, race, or religion. It says person, period which means that anyone can love anybody.
We’re all brought up with a set of ideals, some which were molded by either our parents, teachers, or some outside force like the church. When this happens, we’re taught that if it’s not one way then it’s wrong or even abnormal. Think about it, would could be abnormal or weird, or wrong about loving someone?
Love is love. Period. Doesn’t matter who that person is, what color, gender, religion, social status. Love is indeed blind so if someone has ideas that men loving men or women loving women is wrong, then perhaps they should look at what the true meanings for love is.
Of course, that only covers significant others or spouses, but what about your friends and family? Look at the movie Frozen and how the character was supposed to break a curse through true love. I’m sure all of us thought it was the female character’s love for a man, but it actually wasn’t. It was bigger than that. More importantly the characters love for her older sibling.
So regardless, in terms of significant others, the differences don’t matter and then when it comes to friends, family, children, it still is love and that could warm a person’s heart.
Bottom line, love is love and the other lesson, don’t loosely throw the word around. Learn who really is in your corner and truly has a deep affection and or appreciation for you.
