How much is love

th_025Everything in life has a price tag. Although some of them seems to be free but there is a price you have to pay for them. Money answers all things but there are things money can’t buy because they are not for sale. You can conveniently walk into a market or a mall and pick any item on the shelf, when you have the money to pay for them. But what about those things you want or need in life that cannot be found on the shelf of even the biggest shopping mall or those you have that you cannot display on the shelf in a shop yet it is worth a fortune if you can place a price on it. Trust, courage, honesty, understanding and love are virtues we will be willing to pay any amount to hold on to but they are not found in any market place, shopping mall or ware house, because they are not for sale. And out of them all, love is the greatest, so the greatest thing on earth is not for sale.
However, some people actually think they can trade love for money, because it has a price tag. But how much is love that people are willing to pay so much or that they don’t care how much they are spending for, because of or in the name of love. People are just willing to go any length or do anything in the name of paying the price for love and there is nothing wrong about that. But in as much as we know that love has a price tag, we also need to know that it has its boundary, in other words, love will stretch but don’t over stretch it. So whatever price you are paying or have to pay, such should not exceed those boundaries.
When we hear of the power and the mysteries behind love, we run into concluding that love will never fail. It is true that love will never fail, but in the process of trying to express or proof it, don’t take it too far because as powerful as love is, there are people it cannot bind together. It will bring two people together but will never keep them unless the want to stay. So many people today had dreams of being lovers but they end up as victims instead. They will tell you what they did and the sacrifices they made for love and yet still, love let them down, broke their heart and walked away. But if you really want to look at what they did and analyzed them, you will find out that they had exceeded the boundaries.
Love is not about looking lovely, because when you do what you shouldn’t do or pay so much, it is always lovely. But when love takes a walk you feel the emptiness of life, depressed, disappointed and betrayed because all this while you spend time loving another and never really loved yourself. Thus, the price tag or cost price of love is not doing heaven and earth in the name of love but loving your neighbour as yourself but when you start loving someone don’t stop loving yourself, just in case that someone doesn’t love you back . Because when you stop loving yourself in order to love someone, it is actually then that you have started to pay so much, but you are actually booking a date with heartbreak, betrayal and disappointment. And they will surely keep a date with you outside the borders of love.
