Love in our times: a necessity or not?

Love. The one thing that binds all of us as humans together. The one thing that we all crave in some form or other. Love comes in many different forms and disguises. Whether its parental,sibling,to that between husband and wife or even between best friends,love appears differently to different people.

I used to believe that each one of us were destined to find love and have love in our lives. I used to think that without love it would be impossible to live a happy and enjoyable life. I used to think love was a necessary ingredient for a well-lived life. Ask most people and i’m almost certain that they would echo that sentiment.

Well,as the years have rolled by and life has happened i’m sorry to say that i no longer feel the same way. The world is a messed up place in most cases and to be brutally honest,if you look around,love seems to be less important to a lot of people. People would rather chase money and other more selfish and self serving interests.

More and more families are breaking apart,divorce is at an all time high whilst racial and religious intolerance is also rising all the time. I guess it would be fair to say that things were meant to be used and people were meant to be loved. The only problem in our messed up society is that people are used and things are loved.

The point i’m trying to make is that love is no longer a necessity in our current times. Love is more of a luxury. Not everyone will be loved,not everyone is destined to find someone to love. Hell some wont even have family to reciprocate love. However we shouldn’t let the lack of love detract us from living life to the fullest.

Am i a cynic? Well i don’t think love is a necessity but i do believe in love. The only difference is that i don’t believe i’m meant to find someone to love. I do however have amazing friends and family that i know love me. So i’ll let you decide whether i’m a cynic or not.

Do you guys and gals think that we’re all meant to love someone and that love is a necessity for us as the human race? Please drop a comment or message as i’d love to hear from you.

Till next time peeps. Ciao
