Expressing love has become quite a phenomenon in language usage and adapting the usage of the word to express all sorts of emotions. Significantly, and alarmingly when you stop and think about it, the range is rather wide and versatile, adapted to use in an extraordinary assortment of ways. Of course, and potentially the most poignant, is ‘I love you’. However, the ‘you’ that love is being expressed to has undergone a shift to excess of usage; it has become perfectly acceptable to express love to who ever you please. Not to mention that outrightly declaring love to any and everything has metamorphosed to being completely natural, routine even.
Customary usage of ‘love’ is no longer only preserved to communicate love; the intimate, literal, absolute version of love. The origin of love that is expressly according to definition is no longer the prominent usage of the word; the term, exclamation, reference had the result or an adapted theme of variations, which was probably a release from the intensity of wanting to express affection, or a useful reference to express something adored, and more some.
The result seems to have landed us all in variations on the theme, which hasn’t ending up quite as useful as what was originally quite likely supposed to free us all to express our feelings and emotions of love more easily and casually. It seems to have remained as precarious to declare our adoring love as before, with the addition that exclaiming love of, for example, a friend’s new shoes can be communicated with the same passion as love for another’s opinion, or just absolutely loving the current style. More confusing, is when what a person is saying or doing or wearing or driving is entirely, thoroughly expressly loved, nevertheless, is the person themselves conclusively loved?! Surely that would go without saying? Unconditionally? The answer is never assume. That despite the definition of love, once upon a time, beings so comprehensively articulate of passionate adoration, now words, on all accounts, are used exhaustively. Knowing something to ultimately be as one wants, seems to be reliant on instinct, regardless of one’s extensive comprehension of language.
