Well well well,somethings in life are very difficult to express and understand.love is one of those things.
the meaning of love according to Viktor Frankl,is the only way in which one can grasp another being in the innermost core of his personality.
nobody can become fully aware of the essence of someone else unless he loves him…
by loving a person one sees the essential traits in the person and also the various potentialities he or she has.
it is a medium by which one can find the meaning of life…
i rememeber the first time we met,it was our college canteen ,the old one.
he was sitting there amongst all other seniors ,unlike others he seemed not interested,he was tall lanky ,dark not the best looking person,but he had a charm about himself at the sametime.
i instantly got attracted to him(not romantically),and wanted to talk.
he seemed uninterested,until he saw my shoes .i was wearing sneakers under my salwar suit.he found it really cool.while the other seniors did not seem very pleased.
we met again and again and again .he became my mentor,my friend, guided me in my studies and was there for me in my tough times like a rock.he was carefree unlike me,he was bold unlike me,he was outgoing unlike me,yet he never jugded me.neither did i.people did not speak very well of him.
but , i made up my mind to learn from my own experiences,he seemed innocent and cautious at the same time.
extremely determined,hardworking and competitive,he challenged me always to realise my potentials.it was a bond that had opened me up.i had my fears ,he had his.I had my limitations,he had his,we did not judge.
was that love,yes it was.
we were lucky for our friends, for our families to have accepted us wholeheartedly,otherwise, would the love ever fade.no it would not.
today he is a part of my journey to find my meaning of life,i have always wanted to be with a partner who helps me grow,i have questioned it many times.when i look back to the years ,yes he has ,he has healed me allot.
i have accepted him with his flaws, he has accepted me with mine.
i respect his space, he respects mine.
i know in my head, no matter what happens he will be by my side.Now it is my turn to help him, help him grow, I have my own ways, he has immense potentials, every one of us has, it just needs a little nurturing and a tiny amount of LOVE.
i am not very fond of public display of affection, but I know he will smile (may even cry)
