Love an interesting word to say the least. Webster has its own definition but yet if you asked different  individuals you will more than likely get a different answer every time.. I went on a journey recently to find out for myself what people thought love was. A surprising revelation occurred to me that people today, in this fast paced society, are all to involved with the old saying, me, myself, and I. Now this writer is usually always thinking outside the box and opposite of what is politically correct for the times, and this is no exception. I  asked random people on the street , under the age of 40, what love meant to them believe it or not folks a majority said career, self worth, hobbies, how someone or something makes you feel(that was the popular answer) . I then asked people over 40 and got a totally different answer, in fact the exact opposite of the under 40 crowd.   so i asked myself who Is  wrong and who is right??? Well I guess that all depends on your own view. Lets stop for a second though and take a look at a bigger picture. In today society divorce rates are at a all time high as well are suicides. HMMM.. yet back in our over 40 crowds day those things were unheard of.. So i started yet again thinking to myself why? Always questioning things that me. but yet I have come to a conclusion. the difference between that generation and this one if that people back then relied on others where this one we are taught to rely on ourselves.  in an essence not a bad thing but like i have heard said many times to much of a good thing is usually bad. So why did we go from one extreme to the other. is it  our schools, government, lifestyles, religion. Personally from this writer point of view none of those things matter in the instance. cause as i was taught every thing as an opposite except one thing and that is love. Love is the thing that brings this world together. look at the two holidays christmas and valentines day. the one is for relationships where people who are together put aside all the problems and focus on each other and for one day everything is perfect. Then the christmas a season where everyone seems to get along and you help people you normally wouldn't give the time of day before in any other season. Those two holidays are a great time for love and giving. I was told once by an older gentleman in in 70s that in his generation is was all about the people family and community and today its all about money. I totally agree with this man. This writer doesnt read books or study this writer like to go out and experience and learn from actual people and not text books.So what does love have to do with it. Simple Love has everything to do with it. Do you choose to to get caught up in this world or do you choose to get get caught up in love. Why Cant everyday be valentines day or christmas. It how they lived in the old days and people were married longer and suicides were lower. So my challenge to anyone who reads this please comment but mostly spread the love to everyone treat every day like it was the holiday of love.. thanks for reading hope you enjoyed this writers opinion
