Today is February 14th, so naturally, you must have heard all about love from Zomato, Swiggy, Amazon, Random Uncle/Aunty on the street, Zuckerberg Anna, and many more. So we decided to jump on the bandwagon too and here’s presenting Knit A Tale’s take on the same.
Welcome to our TED talk on LOVE
Love in today’s world is something we chase, something we long for. But how.would you define it? How would you describe it? It is not as simple as saying affection towards someone else, we all feel it differently, we all experience it and express it in our own little ways.
Chocolates have different flavours, different toppings, many variants. Some of us like milk chocolate, some like white chocolate and others like dark chocolate. Some like to add nuts, some like raisins, then there are some who don’t even like chocolate. We all have our preferences for chocolates, we prefer them a certain way. Love is the same way.
When you think of love, the first thing that comes to mind is a couple, a man and woman together in love. But we think there’s more to love than that. Not everyone fits in these boxes, not everyone has or even wants to be in a relationship. Or even if they do, maybe it doesn’t look the same. Some people are in it for the long haul, others prefer the comfort for today.
Love is not just romantic either, asking your friend to text you when they reach home is love. Your mom making sure you eat before you leave so you don’t go hungry is love. You taking care of yourself is love. Your dog wagging their tail when they see you, is love. Checking in on that friend who you haven’t heard from in a while, is love.
Whatever your preference is, whichever way you choose to love, at the end of the day love is love. Only you can define it for yourself. Only you know how much it means to you. This valentines day, tell the people in your life how much they mean to you. It could make a world of difference for them to know how much you appreciate them. Every kind of love is valid, every kind of love is beautiful, let’s celebrate them all, let’s cherish them all.
