Don’t take love for granted

2016-06-16 06:00

READING the multitude of books, magazines and newspapers, it seems that the abstract noun “love” is taken for granted.

Television programmes such as Cheaters have numerous examples where spouses have been taken for granted and people then go out looking for love.

Simple acts like a peck on the cheek excite the enzymes called serotonin in the body, creating a feel-good effect.

A common denominator in the breakdown in many marriages is the condition called “the taken for granted syndrome”, which is fast becoming contagious.

Letting another person know that you love him or her intensely must not be an effort but a daily habit.

The simple act of acknowledging another person’s presence in your life is proof enough that he or she is special.

Justin Bieber says you need to love yourself before spreading this divine, infinite energy to others.

Loving someone must be a daily spontaneous action with the aim of making him or her special.

Don’t ever be a fool, to contemplate later that you did not know what you had until it is all gone.

By then it’s too late because the love of your life has shut you out of his or her heart with the intention of rekindling that warm, fuzzy and inexplicable emotion with another person.

If you have not expressed your love to that special person in your life, the opportune moment is right now.

Love is an intense physical emotion that must be managed effectively to generate its maximum potential.

Vice versa — if love is managed incorrectly, without the respect it deserves, then be prepared for the devastating consequences that come with trivialising this powerful physical energy.

Never take love for granted and never underestimate the power of true love.
