So when I think of love unplugged, I think of exploring love disconnected from what you’ve seen on TV, from the example your parents provided, and disconnected from the idea that it will be a fairytale. I am sure there is someone out there that feels their love is a fairytale but I haven’t met them yet, so I am going to go with it. We have to be able to define love with our partner and through the example that God has set for us.
And yes it’s really hard to do. But at the end of the day, it’s essential to having a healthy relationship. When we have so many outside sources as our standard, we are setting ourselves up for a more challenging course. Having expectations, wants and needs are all great, but I know that plenty of us have overlooked what could have been amazing love because we were looking for a fairytale and not reality.
