I do not know about you but I know that true love exists. It does not necessarily have to be between a man and a woman. I have experienced both hate and love enough times to understand what both are.
There are three types of love that exist in my world:
- Love for God
- Love for family
- Love for close friends
- Love for other people
Each type of love to me is different and I guess that is why I would do certain types of things for certain people.
1. Love for God
I have made it a habit of praying every single day. People tell me that I do not strike them as a religious person but thing is, I believe in a higher power. I may have certain questions surrounding some Bible topics(topic for another day), but fact is, I believe in God mostly because I have prayed and I know he answers. And I do believe that after praying, then you do not get that which you prayed for, maybe that thing was not meant to be yours.
Honestly, this offers me comfort. The fact that God keeps me safe every single day is one thing I am always grateful for. Many people do not get to their destinations and others do not get to wake up. I am not special in any way but his love and mercy is beyond human comprehension. So I love God so much because he has been there for me when no one else could be able to, and he has always continually blessed me even when I did not ask. And one of the blessings is my family.
2. Love for family
I have been raised in a relatively big family and we continue to grow every day. Family to me is not just blood. Fair enough, the bond between my parents, sisters and I is too strong, but there are other people who over the years have become sisters and brothers. You have probably watched my YouTube videos and by now you know my cousin who is like so beautiful both on the inside and the outside.There are other people who have become family and I wish I could mention all of you but I am pretty sure you know yourselves. Boyfriend is also inclusive in the family section. But I do not need to mention it because you all know this.
3. Love for close friends
Close friends are those people who you are comfortable around. Personally, my friends circle has shrunk over the years and I have like less than 5 close friends. And of all the five close friends, I guess I am very close with two.
Close friends to me are those people who are there for me despite of anything. Those people who you can share certain things with and not worry about them stabbing you in the back. A close friend is that person who would totally bail you out of any situation without second thought. How many of these have you got?
4. Love for other people.
There are those people who you like and who you can totally hang out with any day. Those people who are nice to you and who you can grab a drink with and talk about random stuff. You do not tell them everything or sometimes, you do not even open up to them but you guys talk.
Word of advice: Know your friends. Get to understand what type of love you have for them and the voice versa. It is a cruel world. Be smart.
