For thousands of years, with all the changing circumstances, one thing has stayed the same and that is our pursuit of love which of course has many components. We want to be accepted and respected for who we are as a person. If someone truly loves us then we feel very valuable. When someone is on their deathbed they realize that it's the loving relationships in their life which matter most. Think about shows like: "The Bachelor," where people are dying to truly fall in love. It's the most important thing in our life, that in my opinion, we take for granted. We might not have a lot of stuff but do we have love?
Is there someone out there who knows how screwed up we are, but loves us anyway? Do we have someone in our life that has our back no matter what the circumstances? It is the one thing that is missing from Maslow's Hierarchy of Human Needs because although we might die, having one person who loves us and goes through the struggles of basic human needs with us, gives us peace.
After all this rambling I just want to communicate to you that if you have true love, then thank God with all your heart and soul because there are billions of people in this world who don't and I find this crushingly sad.
