I’m not a religious person,  but I do pay my respect to the bibles sometime! Here is an perfect example! Where I find the answer of …what is LOVE.

1 Corinthians 13—Love

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.

If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. 

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.

Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

How many times you have been into a situation that is “not good enough, but not bad enough to leave”? It could be in different forms like in personal relationship, or in a career move…etc. What would most people do?

If this is about career, I think mostly people won’t have much doubts about to prepare for the better opportunities, and when the right time comes, people would make the change without any emotional attachment. However, what if this is about personal relationship? Won’t be more complicate and harder to solve the puzzle? Most common option, he/she would start look around for better one, then called it end when he/she falls for the new love. Or another option could be, he/she starts picking on each other, and starts on unreasonable flight, or seek for any excuses to accuse one’s something that not even true, in order to make a less guilt trip to out of the relationship. The least common option, almost close to mission impossible, which is to turn the situation over, try to make things better to rebuild the connection at the emotional level. I am sure it takes lot of efforts, and it may still not work out.

While I was reading “Marley and Me” , it inspires me that “When a situation goes bad, do you just quit and gave up, to abandon the one you used to love, used to share life’s ups/downs together with, or you would try every things possible to change…”
