So many times I have read articles regarding love. Some would discuss the right formula on how to have that right kind of long lasting love. But does love really has a formula?
For me I think not. Love cannot be contained by a formula. As every person was created unique by God so is love differs and vary in accordance to the uniqueness of the individual. Each person has their own point of view about love. There are so many different ways on how to feel love, receive love and give love. That is why I don’t really believe that there is a perfect formula for love.
But I guess there is a common ground, common equation to begin with the right kind of love.
Right person + wrong time = wrong love
Wrong person + right time = wrong love
Right person + right time = right love
Beginnings are remarkable thing. That is why the beginning of love signifies something remarkable. You cannot afford to begin with love in a wrong time or with a wrong person.
Wrong person does not only pertains to the other half, it also refers to you. Become the right person while waiting for the right one to come. In the event that the right person comes but then you weren’t equipped and ready for that right one — then both of you could be the casualty of the relationship.
Wrong time — as the song lyrics goes “we have the right love at the wrong time”. Time for love, whether we like it or not, is something that really matters. I believe that love takes time. It takes time for you to grow and mature individually. It takes a process. It doesn’t happen in just a snap of a finger. But if you ask me how about those story of love at first sight or love that develops in a very short span of time. Yes, it could happen. Why? because, still, they both take time to mature and grow individually even while they we’re apart.
So, right person and right time to begin with the right kind of love. But even with this, I cannot assure you that you would have a happily ever after. But there is a very high probability for a forever after kind of love.
Just remember though, no matter what formula or equation you have for love — if it does not include God then it would definitely fail. Because the most important thing for love and relationship is the foundation you both have with the author of love Himself, God. Don’t forget that!
