Genuine Love

Have you ever had something happen to you and you said to yourself, “I should take that as a sign.” For subconscious reasons, we think if we don’t listen to that inner voice, we’re doomed for negative things to follow. I’m not a rule follower, but I almost always find myself saying that.. Most people I know, have ended their marriage with a brutal divorce. Things happen, arguments, cheating.. the unexpected happens. We think if we don’t listen to that sign of when to walk away, we will have a lifetime of unhappiness.  That “everything happens for a reason” mentality. Well, what if we break the rules. Loving someone with the knowledge that, NO MATTER WHAT comes our way, we will fight. Fight forever. Not till the end, because who says your love should end? Arguments happen, knowing that person will fight for you, no matter what the “unexpected” is, that to me is UNCONDITIONAL love. I’m sure we’ve all heard, “Baby, I will always love you.” Well you know what, that repetitive statement is well overused. The connection of knowing your love is forever, cannot be described in words. I truly believe it is a once in a lifetime experience. Something RARE and something you should never let go of. People may call it a fairy tale love, or a make-believe love, but I will continue to never settle for anything less than true genuine love. I know loneliness is a popular feeling, which is why people settle for the next best thing. Trust me when I say, Genuine Love is worth waiting for.

    Well, you are right in many respects. However, I am one that does believe everything happens for a reason. Our paths, our lives, in my belief are predestined from the heavens. Along our walk in this life we face many obstacles and decisions, the forks in the road, if you will. Look at every fairytale out there…there is always a decision to be made and always signs along the way to help us make wise ones. Example, Little Red Riding Hood, here’s a story where everything points to something bad that is bound to happen and yet, Red, although apprehensive, is oblivious to the signs of danger ahead.

    We are always going to have forks in the road, big and small decisions to make in this adventure called life. We all have that gift of intuition we just don’t all use it. It’s a gift from the heavens, veritable clues given to us to get us to the prize whatever that may be. Hold on to that tuition and treasure it. When you get as old as I am you will look back with hind-site and realize how many times you actually used it and when you denied it. It’s amazing.

    Lot’s of love Sunny

      That is wonderful wisdom. I am very intuitive and at the same time very fearful? The two mixed together are a bit overwhelming. Which makes me very apprehensive about love. But to think there is a love that exists, no matter what “unexpected” things happen, is truly amazing to me. I like to think when I find that connection, I will never walk away. No matter what happens, through thick and thin, we are forever. I have known so many divorces in my life, my idea of forever love is slowly fading away. It’s the little things in life that give me that hope back. The small things people take for granted, those are the true values of love.

      You are right about listening to your tuition. I couldn’t agree more. I guess, I can’t really explain what I mean. All I know, is I will always have hope for a genuine love that lasts forever; no matter what.

      Lots of love right back,
      Meg

    Meg, it’s called commitment, and it’s something that not enough modern couples understand. So many are enamored with the Kim Kardashians of the world, not realizing that such marriages and relatioinships are eroding their own ability to commit someday. I’m on my third marriage, and it took me until this one to finally realize, “OH! That’s what that means!” We’ve had as many downs as we’ve had ups, and a LOT of hard times, but fortunately, we were trapped together by debt, giving us the time to fall back in love. I firmly believe that if it isn’t a forever, no matter what, I’ve got your back kind of love, it’s not marital love…it’s just love…and love does indeed fade away.

    • Megan says:

      You telling me that really gives me hope. You’re very right, that last sentence is something I want to write down and have it follow me forever. Not allowing time to control your destiny, and never walking away when things get hard is something I hope to always remember. Great wisdom! Thank you for sharing. :)

  3. not really gonna post a big comment but i really like your style, and this post well it kinda reflects on what i think about love most of the time too so great work, very well written, keep it up :)

    • Megan says:

      I’m glad to see you think love is forever too. That is rare, and I wish you the best of luck in your journey. Thank you for the kind words :)
      Much love!

    Thanks for joining my blog as a follower! Marriage is a promise to God and only through lots of prayer and more prayer I truly feel God is the only one that can release you from a marriage gone sour. Sour meaning, that a spouse has and continues to do terrible things without change and true remorse. I know, I am in a middle of a divorce and I look forward to what and where God is leading me next! Good writing, Meg, keep engaging us!

    • Megan says:

      I know you have something wonderful in your future! NEVER forget how beautiful you are. I’m sorry to hear about your divorce. Keep your head up and even though your hurting, don’t put your guard up from love. You deserve to experience a never ending love. Thanks for the encouragement!!
      Much love,
      Meg

  5. This is very inspiring! I always do that. . . “this is a sign” thing & I have a really wonderful boyfriend now & am trying to refrain from running away. It is SO difficult sometimes & of course my parents are divorced so I’m afraid I’m destined for a terrible marriage but only we can break the cycle and make a better future for ourselves :)

    • Megan says:

      I’ve ALWAYS thought because my parents are divorced, I will never know how to have a healthy relationship. But you know what, I think passion is everything. Understanding we WILL make mistakes and allow them to happen. Never walking away because of imperfection. I’m so glad we realized we can break the cycle :) You already have come so far realizing that. Best of luck to you!!

  6. Your last statement demands my agreement. I would like to think I have held the proof of that in my own hands. I waited patiently and my cry was heard, my prayers answered, and I possessed what I could not afford. Beautiful thoughts. When I counsel, I usually tell people that in matter of the heart and relationships the idea of “waiting” is usually the fire which separates the gold from the dross. Lovely words

    • Megan says:

      It’s so good to hear that you have found genuine love. It really does take patience, even after you are ready to love and be loved. That is when patience is tried the most. Thank you for reading and I am sorry for taking so long!

  7. scream911 says:

    Wow! You hit the nail on the head there… definitely worth waiting. Funny how you mentioned the “I’ll love you forever” statement that is used way too much – we should haven’t to assert our knowing all the time, it’s just there. Thanks for this.

    Really enjoy your writing – concise and impacting.

    • Megan says:

      Since November 15th and now.. I have heard the statement yet once again. Crazy huh? I think patience is not only with waiting but also with falling in love. Thank you for reading. :) Sorry for taking so long!

  8. Rebecca says:

    It is better to be alone, i.e. physically single, than lonely in a bad or inappropriate relationship. Love is much more than the physical attraction or the emotional attachment. It is a commitment, but to commit to the wrong person, the wrong relationship, the wrong ideal out of some misguided belief that “together” is always better is dangerous.
    Good thoughts! Enjoyed the read.

    • Megan says:

      When you are in a relationship you know you shouldn’t be it as if you are lying to yourself. Which is the opposite of what love should be, honest. Thank you for reading, I agree with you completely! Sorry for taking so long to reply.

      Lots of love,
      Meg

  9. I definitely believe in true love and I’ll wait as long as it takes for it. Thanks for following my blog :)

    LOVE SAYS SO

    Another night
    Away from you
    Once again
    I’m one not two

    Day to day
    And night to night
    I sleep alone
    In sleep I fight

    My memories
    Fade in fade out
    Sometimes rich
    Sometimes drought

    I hope to meet
    You in my dreams
    Your gentle voice
    Replace the screams

    My prison cell
    My bars of steel
    When I awake
    The steel is real

    Not too long
    For me to go
    Soon I’ll be home
    My love says so

    -Peace

    • Megan says:

      I love that. It’s as if love has all the answers. Love is peaceful and calming and can heal a troubled heart.. Thanks for sharing :) Sorry for the long wait on replying back!!

      Meg

  11. I do believe things happen for a reason and I do believe in true genuine love. I’ve been happily married for almost 23 years and here is our story you might enjoy: http://lscotthoughts.com/2011/11/05/our-story. You’re also right, don’t settle for anything less..although, meeting new people and experiencing new relationships are stepping stones to the right person to share your life with…I enjoyed this very much! :)

    • Megan says:

      You are so right.. Settling doesn’t have to mean waiting for the right person by turning down everyone you think is wrong. It’s about giving people chances, and taking a leap of faith. 23 YEARS! WOW! That is something to be proud of and I love hearing that!! I will definitely look at your blog. Thanks for sharing :) sorry for the long wait on replying.

      Lots of love,
      Meg

  12. eschlerc says:

    You are completely correct. Nobody these days realizes the meaning of true love. I am almost scared of the number of people that judge only based on what they see, instead of what they feel.

    • Megan says:

      I have been guilty of that very thing.. But love is about taking a leap of faith and stepping out of your boundaries. Love isn’t selfish, judgmental or shallow. When we base love on genuine sincerity that is what we are given back. A true sincere love. Thanks for reading. Sorry for taking forever to reply!

    here, here (or is it ‘hear, hear’?)!

  14. Christina says:

    i needed to read this. thank you.

    • Megan says:

      Christina,
      I read this over and over to remind myself. It’s so hard for us to remember that we deserve genuine love. Even when it seems so easy to settle, or so hard to get away. I wish you the best and I hope you know you deserve the best.

      Lots of love,
      Meg

    No emotion, any more than a wave, can long retain its own individual form. — Henry Ward Beecher

  16. Unconditional love is forever, sadly that does not necessarily mean that you will be together in a relationship.
    I still unconditionally love the girl/woman that I was together with for almost 10 years. We did not fight, we did not quarrel and the love was strong. The flame went low although our love was stronger than ever.
    Now she is my best friend for the last almost three years.
    It was a love worth waiting for.
    And I would not trade it for anything in the world.
    Sometimes you just have to know when to let go in order for love to grow strong although it changes it shape.

    Perfect love

    • Megan says:

      You know.. I read this and my first thought was “He is so right.”
      People have come in and out of my life, but my love for them has never gone away. Whether it was because I have hurt them or they have hurt me. I think there are two kinds of people in this world. People who do good and people who do bad.. No matter the race, religion etc. I have never intentionally hurt someone, but unintentionally I have caused pain.I always try to give unconditional love. And I know that even though we are not in each others lives I still love them just as much when they were. So that is proof for myself that love comes in all forms. Thanks for that… :)
