What Does Love Have To Do With It?
Love
can be viewed as a relative term and its definition depends on who
you ask and their perspective. You may agree that love is
demonstrative—not just what you say, but what you do. Sometimes
it’s seen as an expectation, based upon a predetermined mindset
that may not be realistic.

For example, take a person who
displays their love to another and expects that person to reciprocate
in the same way (i.e., buying gifts, verbal affections, etc.) When
that doesn’t happen, the giver may look at the other person as “not
loving” them back, without realizing that love means very different
things from one individual to the next.

We are all made up
of our past experiences, values, and attitudes. How we see the world
is directly related to what we have seen in our own world. Someone
who has experienced abuse or trauma may have a totally different view
on love than a person who has not. For a person who has been
rejected or abandoned by someone they trusted, their perception of
love might be skewed based on that experience.

What
does love have to do with it? That depends on how you see love!
Most people equate love with being cared about, appreciated and
accepted. How that is expressed is as different as the individuals
expressing it. One thing for sure, God’s love trumps all
others!
