An impression I have come to understand regarding love and relationships is that one must not force love. One must not rush what must come naturally through the mutual growth and discovery between two human beings. Much like a blossom so too does love unravel and becomes more beautiful as it matures. Nonetheless, it is a process that cannot be hurried. Much like the flower love is a delicate thing. It must be nourished continuously by a strong foundation, composed of the kind of rich soil we all know as trust; and the rays of light must supply your partner with the warmth of affection needed to sustain the relationship. It is recognized, however, that too much of a good thing is bad. So, it is important not smother your partner with adoration for it will seemingly become less sincere. As you and your significant other each put forth effort into the relationship a healthy balance will be reached. Furthermore, it is necessary to be mindful of moderation; for if a flower receives too little water, it will wither away and if it receives too much, it will ultimately reach the same fate.
On behalf of those who wear their heart on their sleeve—do not fret. If you are lucky hopefully you will meet someone with a similar approach to love—ready to jump all in—to fall head over heels—to not be afraid to love unconditionally. Is not that what we all want in a partner? We all want to love freely. But let us get back to the real world. After several years together, love does not come as easily as it once did. It becomes harder to maintain. Regardless of the difficulty, the flower reminds us that seeds can be planted and love can blossom anew.
