What does this term mean?
I am a bit confused about it.
Can anyone help me with that?
The reason I have brought it up is that, I and my roommate were talking on some random things, and somehow landed on this term, for which she was explaining something that I just didn't seem to follow. I mean, I have always pictured love to be silly, crazy, and things like that. (Maybe the credit goes to all fiction that I read.) But, seriously, I have always felt that it's important to be young at heart, being crazy, ready to fight for and take risks for the one you love. Allowing the course of life to settle in romance, giving way to responsibilities to come and disturb the sweetness of life is something I never ever supported.
But, talking to her, it was like a whole new side to it. Something that I maybe never thought of. I think she didn't mean that one should stop being silly, the point she was trying to make was (I think I'm right) that whether we want or not, situations come up, life moves on, responsibilities have to be taken. And, thus it requires more patience and cooperation. Don't know what should I say about it, kind of speechless I am, because I am not even sure if I got her right. But, a part of me tells me that she was right. A higher level of understanding - non-complaining, non-demanding should be there I guess. But, I wonder if this was what she actually meant to say. I am still as confused as I was while talking to her, and she couldn't help me in that. I get really dumb at times.. Can you help me??
In this whole long conversation, one thing I got to learn about her, that she is far better a person than I thought she was. It feels good to know a person, who's so supportive, understanding, patient, and every damn good thing to the love of her life. I must say, he's one lucky man! And, somehow I am looking up to her, wishing to learn from her and getting the good qualities she has ... :o) tough job though, I think!
