D Is For “Devotion” #LoveIsInDaBlog

It’s a promise, one not to be made lightly. It’s a serious proclamation made toward another person or toward the thing in life you love, the one you were meant to do.

I grew up seeing my parents, devoted to each other. My grandparents (Grandma and Grandpa and Oma and Opa) were all forever devoted to each other.

That’s not always the case in love though. I’ve since learned that too. Devotion takes time to achieve. It isn’t something that’s all that instantaneous.

It seems, now, as if it were something from a time gone by, over exposed and cheesy, like a paperback romance novel.

Maybe, it can be all of those things, love being another word for it. Still, I wonder where such devotion comes from. I will wonder that all my life.

Love Is In Da Blog

I missed last year and may be sporadic this year, but I am eternally fascinated by love, in all its connotations, and so I will celebrate February, red, and love with Love Is In Da Blog again in 2018.

  1. Thanks so much for your post and taking part in #LoveIsIndaBlog2018. You have not missed anything last year because I did not host it because of bad mental health and other changes and issues.

    In my experience devotion in a relationship has developed through hard work. There comes a point when you realise that your prince or princess charming does have some dark parts that he or she does not like and neither do you. It needs tenacity to believe that he or she still is the one and then the both of you fight your way through.

    When you managed to get through that point in a relationship and found a way of not only accepting the other but also yourself exactly the way you are and not the way you want to be or the way you think you have to be then you can stay devoted to each other for the rest of your life.

    But that seems to become harder and harder in a time where everything has to be instantaneous. Good relationships are not instantaneous: They are a lifelong work of love!
