The Four-Letter Word
Love is a strong four-letter word, perhaps the strongest of all. When I consider the implication behind the word love, I realize it has a lot of different meanings, and different people understand it in different ways. However, you are the only person that can love the way you do. You have your own definition of love that nobody can replicate. I realize that sounds extremely cheesy and cliche, but it's true. And when we do not love, we become less like ourselves. The more we love, the more human we are, the way humanity was meant to be. When we do not love, we drop to an animal-like existence. We loose our ability to connect with the souls of other people. When we love we see individuals for who they are, not for who they seem to be. Essentially, we understand them the way they understand themselves.
