Today’s Commercial Break
This series hopes to explore love using different words. I am just going to write what comes to me. I hope you enjoy it and learn something.
My favorite couple in life is my grandparents. I have always loved their dynamic and devotion towards each other. They are so devoted to each other that when my grandfather got dementia, he still remembered his wife and was still very dedicated to her. He didn’t remember much, but you still couldn’t play with his wife. It’s such a beautiful story. I remember wondering how they could have loved each other for more than fifty years like that. How could they have loved each other through all those different seasons? How did they still adore each other despite the changes they underwent as years progressed? This article has no answer for this🤣🤣🤣.
I sometimes wonder if I was really in love with all the people I have supposedly loved since I couldn’t love them through all seasons. I remember watching myself change for the better and people I have loved remain the same or change in a different way and wondering if we were still going to make it. The thing about change is that sometimes you have no control of what is going to happen to you and how it affects you. For example; I didn’t know that I was going to go through so much between 2018 to 2020 that I would wind up very depressed and suicidal. This kind of change is not meant for everyone and not everyone can stick through that season.
I slowly realize two things about change and how it applies to love. When you are with someone, you are likely to go through the same journey in life, so the change is always likely to be similar. If it is different, there is communication in relationships to help people wind up on the same page. The other lesson is that love is a choice. Every day you choose this person and choose to fall in love with the person they are that day. This means that relationships are dynamic and not static; they shouldn’t remain the same as when they started. Allowing your relationship to change for the better or just in a different way that doesn’t threaten it as you change could be the secret that my grandparents had to survive that long for more than fifty years.
What do you think is my grandparents’ secret when it comes to love and change?
