Patience in love

Love is defined as a very strong feeling of affection towards someone who you are romantically or sexually attracted to (OALD, 2008: 913). It is the most phenomenal spiritual energy given to humanity. Love makes miracles for those who believe in its nature. For this reason, it is not advisable to underestimate the meaning of love.

Sometimes, Man reaches certain crossroads in his life where he will be bewildered to choose the right path so as to be in a good shape. So, he has to sleep on such bewilderment to move in the right direction for good. One of the matters that cause unbearable pain to Man’s emotions is hasty action in love.

Man should be well-prepared for life circumstances that he may come across. This is why patience, which is described as the ability to stay calm and accept delay or something annoying without complaining (Ibid: 1110), will have a big say in resolving this problem. Lovers should be similar to electric heaters in order to melt the ice that covers their lovers’ hearts smoothly. They must not be like hammers that break the ice surrounding their lovers’ hearts because this action could injure their loved ones. As for the first simile, it means that being patient will cause one no trouble with his lover whereas the second simile means that being hasty will make one suffer from countless setbacks in his love affair. Finally, if one wants to have a valid access to his lover, patience will be the answer for sure.
