Love, is a strange emotion.
There are no take-aways in love. Love itself is a selfless act of giving, and it occurs strange because the love loves rewarding itself with love, yet selfdom stays disjunct from any desires or gains.
I love being loved, we love being loved.. but does love loves loving the love lovingly as loved?
Love is an act, analogous to a flow, always outwards, outgiving. But love loves attention. And may be so why love loves, loving the love, lovingly as loved.
It breaks. We all have enough evidences and can testify it against our experiences, when love turns into hatred or despise.
The fact that love is a selfless act is then an understatement. The statement ‘Love is a sacrifice’ is a distort, and so is ‘love is an act of kindness.’
The contradictions occur, because love loves loving the love lovingly as loved. To break this line and add more sense, love loves attention, love loves being acknowledged, love loves rewards, love loves love. Although love itself is an ever giving, outwardly act, the act sets a demand for a perpetual action, which although not evident, can be empirically guessed from one experience to another.
There is no conclusion or understanding to be derived. We best leave it to the things to decide and not judge. Likes and dislikes may change over time, the act of love may never cease and manifest in one form or the other.
