Love Is Not Disgusting
“Love has no awareness of merit or demerit; it has no scale… Love loves; this is its nature.” – Howard Thurman
When you meet that one special person that steels your sanity, that makes your soul twist and turn, and makes your head spin, you know you want to be around them, you want to become a better person. You can have all kinds of cheesy words to describe love, you can google and find all kinds of stories, terms, definitions of love, expression of love, unconditional love and etc., but when it is real, you just know and there is no need for words or definitions.
For those who oppose same–sex marriage and believe that they have the right to determine who is allowed to love and determine the gender you are supposed to love, I would like to remind that: Love is more than three words mumbled before bed time. It is more than what people do in their bedroom. It is more than just an interpretation of homosexuality.
Love is an energy that lifts us through the most difficult times. It frees us from our limitations. When you look into your partner’s eyes and your heart skips a beat, and it is harder and harder to breath and all you want to do is to be with them, to share your life with them, to share your heart and your joy, the world seems just a beautiful place to be in. You do not want to go on another day without giving a true chance at a life with love and happiness.
Love is not disgusting. Hate is. The person who has not loved or has been badly hurt or had to conform to other’s decision on what they are and how they are supposed to live, people turn to hate. They hate themselves and they project this hate and unhappiness onto everything and everyone. They hate people who choose to live according to their hearts, they hate people who are happy, and they hate people who live lives like they (haters) wanted and dreamt about but don’t have guts to stand up and be who they are.
