Learning Love.

At first, I didn’t think there was such a thing as “love” for a person that wasn’t family. An emotion that can’t be explained scientifically, but even without understanding we make it a part of our everyday lives as a noun or a verb.

Love; noun. A profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person. A feeling of warm personal attachment, as for a relative or friend. Sexual intercourse.

Love; verb. To have a profoundly tender, passionate affection for. To have a sexual intercourse with.

Maybe it was the fact that I understood the definition and yet, I understood nothing at all. But time continued on, even without my understanding. When I did learn, though, it was an experience that changed my life. I finally understood “love” for the first time, and it will always be an experience I can’t ever forget.

I think, no matter how hard they study, no matter how many times they go over the definitions, for one to truly understand, they must experience it for themselves.
