Invitation to Love

leave a comment »

What if love was an invitation? What if it didn’t have the need to convince or coerce? What if through our own choices and through the circumstances of our own lives we all came to a singular agreement? What if that agreement was love? What if over time we all chose love and hate was abandoned? Some say there must be hate in order for love to exist, but what if hate was just love without the context? What if hate was love, misunderstood?

Too often we go about life trying to make others as we are. We try to make others understand love as we do, when perhaps what we should be doing is sharing our love, and sharing who we are. Each must come to an understanding of love on their own and in their own time for if love is forced, are we not living a lie? Is that love not built on a foundation of falsehoods?

Though it is often painful to watch the ones we love live a life filled with choices that seemingly lead one away from us, love is understanding that one must come to an understanding on their own accord. Love is understanding that despite one’s choices, love still invites.
