Do You Love Me?

Self-Love. I love me Illustration

Self-Love at Perfection. Works for a T-Shirt, doesn't it?

“Do you love me?” asked Teresa as I sat there on the couch all curled up as I watched the Tele Novella. At that moment I wondered why so many couples separated after saying “I do”. What makes such a large number of couples nowadays who were head over heels for each other go after each other’s throats bent on destroying what they once described as love? LOVE, what is love? Yeah, you guessed right, it is an emotion but this doesn’t end there. You cannot do without it and no, we can’t scrap it from our systems. Emotions are what make us human. I’m sure you are now wondering what I’m getting at.

Recently I attended a wedding and I heard those famous words “I do” once again being exchanged by a young couple. I muttered a small prayer that they would not wind up punching each other like most couples nowadays do. If you have said these “sacred” words or you are about to say them to someone you think that you want to spend forever with. Do you really mean what you say? Why are you getting married? To complete your life, is it for the money or the power. I’m sure most of you are in the boat because of these and more reasons. It’s nice to want more money, more power or even for someone to complete you. If you are in marriage due to these reasons then all I have to say is, “what the hell are you doing there?!” you are definitely on a crash course

Love is not about completing an individual’s life; it’s not about the diamonds, the rings and all those shiny things. It’s about complementing what you already are. In order for one to be able to complement him or herself one must be happy with himself, you shouldn’t be searching for a mate for you to be happy with yourself. If you are not happy with yourself when alone, I hate to break it to you but you won’t be any happier with yourself while you’re with someone else.

It all melts down to love for you. Ask yourself this simple question, “do I love me?” deep down you know the truth and once you have realised it then work on it, it shall set you free. The greater the love for yourself, the greater the joy your future holds. Let’s go back to the couple. Once they are both comfortable with themselves and find out that they make each other happy with their imperfections, their bond will surely be stronger. The problem with today’s society lies in the love that the individuals have for themselves, that’s why we have so many divorce cases. Love towards oneself removes neediness towards another person in our lives. This is seen in various cases, for example; when a guy is out to win a fair lady’s heart neediness is a recipe for losing the girl even before you can say “I love you” even if she had previously had a thing for you.

The long and short of it is whether you love yourself. Is the love in abundance that it can be shared with others? When you are in love with yourself then you can say “I do” to a life full of laughter.
