Love, Thoughts

What is Love?


What does it mean?

This word gets used around a lot and often as casually as saying, “Oh my God, I love this dress” and “I love pizza.”

And just like when we find a more better looking dress, we go from our old favorite to the new ‘organically’, people say stuff like, “I don’t love you anymore, now.”

And with the pizza analogy, that minute they are in love with someone and they love absolutely everything about them and the next day they groan about how the pizza is ruining them.

I have stopped believing in the classic love line now. We may say we love someone but if we don’t reflect that in our actions, it means nothing.

I would rather prefer helping others, supporting and respecting each other’s decisions and caring.

That is true love for me.


Things I am apprehensive about post Lockdown

  • Conversations

Conversations in general and small talk in particular. It is going to feel like a first day at school after a really long summer holiday. And the first thing to do will be re-meeting up with people. It will be diving deep into an avalanche of updates about everyone’s life – updates that I am not sure I am personally interested in anymore.

  • Getting adjusted to the ‘new’ routine

Admit it, even though if we try to maintain the same schedule as before the Lockdown, it’s not going to feel familiar. It will definitely take a lot of getting used to for me and I’m worried because I don’t do well with change.

  • Going back to the ‘old me’

I have worked very hard on myself in this Lockdown. And being in contact with only my close people has been working for me. I do not want to get sucked in the daily drama of my old self again. I don’t want to be back on Square One.
