Love Redefined, Flexed and Crunched
Love, the word itself strikes a million chords in our hearts. For each one of us it rings a different bell, for some their crushes, for others their boyfriends or girlfriends, and for some — their parents. Everything changes with time; this is something we have been listening from our parents or other elderly persons in the family and society.
Love, the word itself strikes a million chords in our hearts. For each one of us it rings a different bell, for some their crushes, for others their boyfriends or girlfriends, and for some — their parents.
Everything changes with time; this is something we have been listening from our parents or other elderly persons in the family and society. How, this time will change a relationship between a girl and a boy, they would have never thought of that.
Modern relationships are very different from those in older times. A man need only to see a woman in a mode of undress accidentally and he would be obligated to marry her. Attributes such as purity, virginity, and celibacy were requirements for an unmarried woman. According to some newly wedded couples; it would be quite difficult to find an adult female today who possesses these traits.
However, an advantage to these modern relationships ensures that a man and woman today need not enter into marriage just for sex. It seems to also hold true, that a relationship which suffers through unsatisfying sex, doesn’t last.
The divorce in older times has become breakup in today’s relationships. Even though breakup can be heart wrenching at times.
These days’ relationships have an all-new meaning. They are short-lived, meaningless, at times only physical, and lately use and throw relationships seem to be the raging trend. Short-term relationships such as flings, one-night stands have become so common that the true essence of love seems to be lost somewhere. There is nothing wrong with having a no strings attached relation, but the emotional consequences (how much ever one may deny) are not justified.
For today’s youth love is blended with lust and in this process they give up their morals, ethics and culture. Without realizing this, individuals today are gallivanting around without giving their actions today a single thought. Love, soul mates, all these things seem to be of the past. And the worst bit remains that the realization quotient in people has become zero.
Depression rates are higher than ever. Ridiculously high expectations often render the relationship baseless.
We don’t work on relationships any more. If someone leaves us, we deem them not right for us, and move on. Insecurities in modern relationships create fertile ground for infidelity and results in relationship “jumping”. With the equality of the sexes, Men can now look at women as capable and strong entities, capable of providing for themselves and others, women can do it all, with the male feeling of no sense of guilt, because, hey, “She can take care of herself”.
Our relationships today are headed for a doomsday scenario if the present status continues. We have stopped valuing them and caring about them, forgetting in the process that relations are very delicate. They need to be handled with love and care and be nurtured with affection combined with warmth and fondness.
We have to understand that love abides in everybody and we have to learn to respect and value people. As individuals we need to understand other beings around us to live a peaceful and better life. Love teaches us to value, to care, to forgive. And it is this beautiful feeling, which connects everybody. In this fast paced world that we are living today where love has lost its meaning, we need to rekindle it and its passion. And endure in making the world believe and feel that there is nothing more beautiful in this world than to love and be loved.
