Intimacy is always bothering me when it comes to know that timewill come it will frighten me by its hurt. I am hurt if that person hasgreat value to my sentiment and someday the relationship isneglected by him as if nothing happened like amnesia. That willonly be of great intimacy if he is the only one whom I¶m dealingwith but with the course of being expose with so many othersthere¶s a tendency to neglect once feeling to only one.I am not affected by technology to lessen my intimacy becausemany youth especially children majority don¶t have a facebook yet so I am not fully satisfiedhaving many friends in fb because that¶s only for those who are of age and know how to usecomputer.For children that I have love before and after, there is only one to have. Since it is manyof you, I must have to focus connecting to the ultimate that give me much importance. Buscaglialoves how he embraces life and he encourages me to pursue embracing others. The manner that Ishown is seems like we missed each other in a long period of time as if I don¶t want to losesingle moment of being with him. I will not weary to hug every time I see him. By doing smallacts of kindness he change a lot after knowing me that I am a kind-hearted one. Someday, I will be teaching in a class of love like Leo. I am LIVING in my true self, I am LOVING in a true wayand LEARNING as I continue to live in the world of love in the field of teaching. Teach aboutlove to your class and teach how to live in love and not to teach in order to find love.These are the three ³L´ that I am telling. I live because of love and as I grown up Ilearned. The reason we are here in this world is to love. Love means everything. Without love, Iam nothing, nothing at all. Love relates to our affective part and learning for our cognitive partand living is for our psychomotor. What a complete ingredients for being human.The hardest battle that I am going to fight is the battle to be just me. If I die it means Ilose life and that life is love. Love is my life so, if I¶m not nurtured, I will die. I am that loving person who is able to love myself. Like a birthday gift, I am not bothered to open it as a surpriseto face the essence of love. So, I really don¶t miss it. I will not be tired of saying a thousandwords ³I love you´ just in a day.The essence of love is getting out of oneself and into others. When we care less about our feelings, our rights, our happiness, our security, etc., and begin to concern ourselves with thefeelings, rights, happiness, and security of others, we will have found the true power of love. Wecan ask ourselves daily what we have done to make the world a better place, to make someonesmile, to help someone to feel more secure, etc. It's the simple things which have the greatesteffect. We must never underestimate the strength of a smile or act of kindness. We take love for granted. We assume we are all perfect lovers and all we need do is wait and our love will growand blossom as readily as a flower in spring. Not so. Love doesn't grow unless we do. It takes patience, knowledge, experience, determination, and every positive trait we possess. In addition,love is always changing and unless we stay aware and change with it, it eludes us. We are all born with God-given, unique traits and skills. But, as with all possibilities they will remainunrealized unless they are developed, nurtured, and put into practice. You may have the"capacity" to love, but if left undeveloped, you will never gain the "ability." A life of love is oneof continual growth, where the doors and windows of experience are always open to the wonder and magic that life offers. To love is to risk living fully. I don't believe in unconditional love. Infact, I think it's unwise. My love has had a condition that if ever my love keeps you from you,from your growing, and realizing your personal potential, then I must step aside. No one has theright to stand in the way of another's joy, development, or unique perceptions. We live in a smallworld. Not a leaf falls that doesn't affect a myriad of things. When we reach out to someone inlove and the effect is made ² everyone, everything which comes in contact with the personwe've affected is better for it. Of course, the converse is true, too.
