A simple story about Love

Filed under: Inspiration,Stories — Subbaraman Iyer @ 10:55 pm

One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink. So all repaired their own boats and left. Love was the only one who stayed.Love wanted to persevere until the last possible moment.When the island was almost sinking, Love decides to ask for help.Richness was passing by in a great boat. Love said "Richness, can you take me with you? " Richness answered, " No, I can’t. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you."

Love decided to ask vanity who was passing by in a beautiful vessel,"Vanity, please help me!" " I can’t help you love. You are all wet and might damage my boat " Vanity answered. Sorrow was close by so love asked for help," Sorrow, let me go with you," "Oh…..Love, I am so sad that I need to be myself!" Happiness passed by Love too, but she was so happy that She did not even hear when love called her!

Suddenly, there was a voice," Come Love, I will take you" It was an elder. Love felt so blessed and overjoyed that he even forgot to ask the elder her name. When they arrived on a dry land, the Love asked Knowledge, another elder," Who helped me?" "It was time" Knowledge answered " Time?" asked Love "But why did Time help me?

Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered," because only Time is capable of understanding how great Love is"

Love is a wonderful feeling and most of us are either in love or secretly admire somebody. But there is one thing about love. It needs time to grow, to mature and to last forever. Time teaches us many things about the other person.

The main requisite for love is that one must be ready for it. Most of us feel that once we are of a certain age, we must have boy friend/girl friend or there is something wrong with us. But this isn’t Love; it’s toeing the line. This is one reason why many people fall in and out of Love frequently.

Love requires one to be strong and resilient because there will always be heartaches and one must be ready for them for all this one must be and be emotionally mature.

Over time, you begin understanding each other for what you really are not the fancy dresses and costly gifts, but the real person. The person who will accept you with all your faults and weaknesses truly loves you. This understanding takes time.
