Apart From An Over Used Word

Written by: Maria Elouisa E. Enerlan

Apart from an overused word, a totally unexplainable feeling that can’t be described in any way possible, but there are two things that we need to know. First, when you feel it while you are with them and it's the best feeling in the world, nothing surpasses it. Second, when you feel it without them it makes you feel bad and yearn for their presence, but still you feel happy. It’s a feeling somewhere inside of you and sometimes it would terribly confuse you. 

Although, the feeling of love could couldn’t be easily described because there are some things that shows certain symptoms. I guess, that feeling are things which includes following:

* A complete trust that your thoughts and feelings and other aspects (if not all aspects) of your life/self will be safe in the hands of another.
* You can't do anything without thinking about them.
* Longing to hold them (or be held by them) and be with them.
* Wanting to be by them every second of the day.
* Without them you would feel incomplete or empty inside.
* The desire to learn (everything about the one you love) and to teach (everything about yourself.)
* Knowing that they will always be there for you no matter what happens.
* An intense devotion to him/her.
* Knowing that nothing else matters more than them.
* When you accept the other person entirely and completely.
* Knowing if without them you couldn’t live.
* Love makes you look down on everyone else because they do not feel what you feel (presumably.)
* Everything seems better when they are in your life, they make the sun a bit brighter, the birds chirp a bit louder, even your heart beat a bit faster, and there is a spring in your step too.
* It makes you feel like you are stuck in a dream.
* They make you get butterflies in your stomach when they look at you and they make your pulse race when they touch you.
* It's not to be mistaken for lust.
* They can stop the time in its tracks when they kiss you.
* You would go to great extents for them.
* Sometimes you just want to break down in tears for no reason at all.
* Love is reciprocated.
* When they tell you they love you, it makes your heart weak and your chest tighten.
* When you think about how they love you (and you can't believe it) it almost brings a tear to your eye.
* It makes you blind.
* It makes you happier than you have ever been before.

Everyone feels love differently, in his or her own way. This is just what I feel. There are probably other things that I can't remember at the moment or things that other people would feel.
