You don’t even have to respond.
I simply love you.
Seems idealistic and bookish. It is not. It is Love. The true love. An unconditional and immortal Love.
Real Love is a giver- Love never demands or expects in return. More devotional-Less Conditional. More Expectations-More Conditional.
Love is unconditional, but expectations make it conditional!
Love, if developed as an outcome of the fulfilled expectations, it becomes conditional. In such cases, if fulfillment flourishes, love flourishes, if fulfillment suffers-love suffers.
That happens in the case of almost every relationship. Relationships have some expectations, visible or hidden, genuine or in genuine, expressed or silent.
Likewise, a marital relationship has an uncountable number of the expectations. As a girlfriend / boyfriend relationship expectations are different. Post marital expectations, roles and responsibilities are entirely different. After marriage, “I love you” can be a great motivational factor and can provide an emotional comfort to the spouses. However, the words of love cannot substitute the genuine expectations and requirements of the relationship. Words of love also help in taking corrective actions, jointly.
Love doesn’t need any management or efforts to flourish. Nor, it can be claimed as a matter of right or a part of commitment. Love in a relationship is not an input. It is an output and outcome of the effectively and efficiently managed relationships. One has to nurture it consciously and continuously by understanding the genuine expectations of each other.
Love is unconditional and immortal, but love in relationships, especially in marital relationship, it is Conditional and Mortal.
Love is precious. Don’t let it die.
