Image Source: Source

One of the most important thing in mankind life is love and expression of love. We human beings are social creatures and relationships are important and integral part of our living and self worth. Can you imagine, if you had money, fame, beauty and everything you wished for but no true person to love, trust? That would be unbalanced life that would suck big time.

Sometimes, we go through many emotions with our family, friends, spouse, boy friend, girl friend, parents, and children: Some of them makes us happy, some of it makes us sad, and some of it may make us angry as relationship are never straight forward, and are as complex as human beings. Many times, we do  not know how to express our love to someone, or we may show it the way we had seen from relatives, parents, which may or maybe not be the correct way. Some people may think buying expensive gift for someone you love is ONLY way to show you care. There are many simple and inexpensive ways to rock your marriage and love life.

If you ask my mom how to show we love her, she may tell that if we finished the food she cooked and asked for seconds that is love. It might be, but then you load up on love and calories at the same time, two in one combo, which may not be the perfect way to show love.Yet, my mom’s cooking is great and having someone cook for me is even greater so I ask for seconds always. Little weight and exercise later is worth it for my mom’s cooking!

    Thank you Preeti for such a fantastic list!

    Number 50 is located most appropriately. If one realizes that they love another and so chooses to surrender with respect to the other 49, but then chooses to ‘control’ their partner, so changes the original bonding nature of their love.

    Rand,

    I think surrendering to love is best way to show love. My mother used to say when I was young that “If you loved someone, let them be free, if they came back they were yours, if they did not, they did not care”. It took me some time to realize that. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
