The old saying “love heals all” has been used as a motivational mantra during hard times like the one the world is facing today. This elusive idea that love, one of the most powerful emotions of them all, can bring about a sense of peace, is overwhelming; in the best way possible.
Unfortunately, it takes a deep understanding of ourselves and the world around us to grasp the concept that love really can heal a majority of the things we go through. Let’s consider how.
Love Is Supportive
It seems that during these darkest moments, the outpouring of love can come in various forms. Whether it’s a friendly text from a loving family member or a nice greeting from an unknowing stranger, love is supportive. This seemingly small display of affection can be the light we need during these overwhelming time.
Love Is Patient
When we truly loves someone, we exercise patience. This means we’re open to overlook simple flaws with the hopes that one day, that person will continue working on themselves. This is an essential quality to have when we’re in a romantic relationship. Sure, nobody is perfect. However, the more we continue to exercise patience, the more we’ll appreciate their growth.
Love is Unconditional
Much like a mother who loves her child, true love is unconditional. This means it’s able to overlook physical and emotional imperfections. This is especially healing for us as individuals who are going through these transformative stages. It may be a weight loss journey while at home, a pursuit of a new career in this insecure economy, or the radical movement we are facing. Those in our circle who love us are able to overlook our momentary lapse of “perfection” and exercise unconditional love.
As we go through these uncertain times, we need this unconditional love to help us endure. By having this unconditional support from the ones around us, we’re able to continue our journey with strength.
Love is Understanding
When we feels misunderstood, we’re missing a strong aspect of love from others. We may feel like those around us aren’t trying hard enough to see our point of view. This could easily come off as unloving.
However, if we truly love someone, we will go above and beyond to understand our partner and their feelings. This means taking the time to listen and truly grasp the perspective of those around us. This is an essential characteristic for those of us in romantic relationships.
Understanding is one of the foundations of love. In fact, many people end relationships because they felt their partner simply didn’t understand them. Since it’s so important, it’s vital for those to seek understanding as a means to showing love.
Love is Expressive
When we go through hard times, whether physical, emotional, or financial, it’s important for those around us to express their love and support. This little boost of motivational confident is like medicine to a sick child. It just makes the pain tolerable and easy to endure.
When they express not only their support, but also how they feel about us, they’re letting us know that our life matters. This is especially important for those of us going through self-esteem issues.
How Can You Show Love
Using love as a healing tool is an essential part of developing healthy relationships. One of the foremost ways we can implement this into our daily relationships is to let those around us know how we feel about them.
Seek to practice understanding and patience as we deal with those going through hard times. In addition, never be afraid to express our love and support for them. Our kind words and consistency may be just what they need to endure.
As we continue to practice love as a healing tool, understand that karma is real. What we put out will surely come back. Therefore, continue to place love at the forefront as it truly heals all.
