Tuesday at Ten { LOVE }

Welcome to Tuesday at Ten! The Tuesday blog Link up where you have 6 full days to use the “prompt phrase” as a part of your writing.

Each week I post a prompt phrase and you finish the phrase and write how that phrase fits you and your life or your thoughts.

Whether it be just writing a story behind the phrase or being as creative as you wish using photos, poems, art, or graphics – whichever creative way you choose.

You have 6 days to write and link up your blog at the bottom of the page so that others can link up with you.

Be sure to visit your “link up” neighbor and spread the joy of connection! A new Prompt word is posted every Tuesday Morning at 10am, the link up closes at 11pm the night before.

Every Monday evening (the day before the new word is posted) I will choose ONE highlighted writer of the week to be highlighted and shared on the Tuesday at Ten Facebook page for all to see. You will also get an award graphic for that week to post on your blog.

Make sure to visit the Tuesday at Ten Facebook page to view the winner and for daily news!

Remember  – it’s not about being perfect, it’s about being YOU. Have FUN

This weeks prompt phrase is:

{ LOVE }

_______________________________________________

Love is…according to the dictionary:

noun \ˈləv\

: a feeling of strong or constant affection for a person

: attraction that includes sexual desire : the strong affection felt by people who have a romantic relationship

: a person you love in a romantic way

Love to me is a very abstract sort of thing. I can’t quite describe it and aside from family I am not even sure I have ever felt it realistically.

I feel love for my family because I was told that is what you feel for family. I don’t exactly know what that really means. I grew up with them and felt affection for them, but not sure that is really love. 

The definition of love has always been difficult for me. To me love means you would give up anything for that person without feeling a sense of unwanted obligation. You would do it willingly. I don’t feel capable of real love.

I know I was supposed to love my husband. I did not marry him for love, I did not feel love or affection for him and I felt more like friends with a rocky relationship if that. Most of the time I just wanted him away from me.

I feel bad about that, but that is how I felt. I had good reasons to resent him. He emotionally abused me all of our time together. Because of my Bipolar Disorder I wasn’t strong enough to leave so I pretended to love him. That is wrong on so many levels. I know that and I am sorry for that.

I would say that if I was truthful I have never felt love in a real sense. Affection is as far as I would go with that. Except for the love between a mother and her children. Maternal love is definitely different than love for a spouse or partner.
