I hope you are well and taking really good care of yourself. I hope you know how amazing you are and never let anyone put you down. I am currently full of hope and have a very busy schedule but I am surviving.

Love Series

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.


Hope is a four letter word


I asked my friend how he knows if someone really loves you in a relationship (humming Whitney Houstons ‘ How will I know?”) He looked at me as if he had never really thought about that question and said ‘ Well, I guess you love someone with all you have and only hope that they do the same.’ Hope? Like you could love a person with all that you have and show up for them and you settle for the hope that they love you back.

I know that the purest love often comes with no expectations and just happy that a person exists but in a relationship especially a romantic one, there must be some form of reciprocation and compromise. Hope is not enough to keep a relationship alive. One has to have more. I believe that everyone deserves a love that they are sure that they are loved through affirmations and actions.

Love is a verb. You don’t hope that you will see it. You feel it and watch its majestic power. There’s a Kiswahili proverb that say that love is like a cough, cannot be hidden (Although with Corona people have learnt how to hide coughs) So may you find a love that doesn’t require to hope for it. May the love you find scream your name in the mountains and shower you will a love so beautiful that you will never know what it is like to hope that someone loves you back. Remember this love starts at home. I hope you never hope that you love yourself.


Do you know that you are loved or do you hope that you are loved?

  1. You definitely know. You can’t have an effective relationship if you keep hoping that your partner reciprocates your lovely feelings. I want to know!

      Yes💖💖💖 Hoping is not enough. Thank you for reading.

  2. Jadwong says:

    A little bit of both I guess. It sort of tends to start from hoping to knowing and the circle counties.

    With four love languages available to us, at some point, doesn’t matter where, in the relationship, you HAVE to know 🤷‍♀️ because the love is being expressed out. As we were reminded by the Kiswahili Proverb, “love is like a cough, cannot be hidden” and why should it be hidden anyway? #TeamPDA 🤣🤣🤣

        You are welcome

  3. I’d definitely know that I’m loved if I feel that the “hierarchy” of my love language is considered and worked towards and vice versa.
    Say if I prefer words of affirmation to receiving gifts, do I really get that?
    And how about if he, on the other hand prefers spending quality time with me as opposed to acts of service, does he actually get that?
    I believe love is a two-way traffic, no room for hope.

    Can’t get enough of your reads Jackie 💜💯💯💯

      I love this. I was actually thinking about this today. How love languages play a big role in relationships and whether you feel loved or not. I believe true love is learning each others love languages and practising them. Thank you for reading💖💖

  4. Yes, Yes…

    When someone loves you, you know they love you and when they don’t, you know they don’t.
    The issue I suppose is accepting that love or the lack there of.
    It’s so easy to convince yourself someone doesn’t love you when the do and vice-versa.

    It’s always nice to love and be loved too.

    1. jackie says:

      Really profound comment. I hadn’t thought of the idea of not being able to recognize that someone loves even when they do.

        Oh yes oh yes
