What is Love?
Well, you may wonder why the definition of “LOVE” is a part of this Concept of the day category but honestly speaking, I have seen people saying I love you to each other without even understanding its true meaning. As per Wikipedia, Love is a strong and positive emotional and mental state. It is the most important good habit or quality and the deepest form of interpersonal affection.
Love is something that starts from yourself to express or share with others. You cannot pour a cup of coffee to others from an empty jug, the same way if you really have no love within you for yourself, what you are serving to others is nothing but a duty or obligation that may not last long and anything that you do without love has no durability as well.
I will share with you an example of a businessman who got into the occupation of business after his graduation in business management. He lived his life comparing with others’ success and was always jealous of others who went ahead of him. Out of the fear of losing out his finances, he invested in the technology business and used up all his marketing skills and technical expertise to make people believe how big of a brand he is.
His leadership style was autocratic and he never liked others’ ideas even it meant business for him. All he knew was to keep commanding over a bunch of college students who were fresh graduates and joined his firm. Considering he didn’t follow ethical business practices, his setup had to have its end in a span of a decade.
This example says a lot about the root cause of his business failure. He never loved himself truly, his ego and pride always dominated his feelings which made him adopt unfair practices in relationships and even in business. When things got revealed, his business partners, known people, and his own business that he set up from the scratch all left him alone.
When you really love something or someone, you need to be 100% sure of your intentions in doing what you are doing. If you love yourself, you need to talk to yourself in a honest manner and not fool it, because there will come a day when the fakeness has to leave and all you are left with is a lonely self who craved true love from you always.
