The Parallel Lines Of Love

Love is infinite in the sense that it can continually grow and take many forms.


Love can be like two parallel lines and the space created between them in math. The space between the lines is infinite, but the lines also create boundaries.

As more people begin to think about Christian teachings again, some will ask if love can be whatever you want it to be. Love is infinite, but it cannot be whatever a person wants it to be. Otherwise, the different forms of abuse that most people would condemn as hurtful and controlling could be included in the definition of love.


Love is still infinite in the sense that it can continually grow and take many forms. It can look vastly different in a wide array of situations. Love can even cause people to give everything they have for one another. However, one example of when love is no longer love is when it is aimed at selfishly using someone for one’s personal advantage.


Love can be like two parallel lines and the space created between them in math. The space between the lines is infinite, but the lines also create boundaries. For example, these boundaries involve the need for love to recognize the value of the person loved and the fact that it is not right to use or hurt that person selfishly.

Parallel lines is such a great and unique way to describe love.

Love can be a complex thing in our lives. We cannot live without love and sometimes, love can be way more dangerous for us, especially when the expectations are high.

Hurting the other one unintentionally is always a chance and being selfish, I think comes only when the distance between the lines becomes fathomable to one and the need to move away as parallels become eminent.

Everyone goes through a phase in a relationship where they want to give everything selflessly to other half, adhere to every demand of him or her and do everything needed to make them happy. The so called ‘Selfless Love’ is the starting point of every relationship.


We keep on giving and giving and sooner or later we become empty. After a while we find ourselves completely empty. We have nothing more to share.


Learn to love yourself. You are the most important person and your happiness matters as much as anybody else’s. You have to remember: If you don’t love yourself first, how can you expect the other person to do so?
