Love is just a four-letter word.
Pero ang salitang ito ang isa sa pinakamadalas nating gamitin. Sabi pa nga, ito ang "most abused word" lalo na kung binibigkas ito nang wala sa ating puso.
But when a person really means it, ito na siguro ang pinakamasarap pakinggan at makapagbibigay ng inpirasyon sa sinuman.
Love is just a four-letter word, pero ito rin ang isa sa may pinakamaraming kahulugan—depende sa taong magbibigay ng kahulugan nito.
Kaya naman tinanong ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) ang ilan sa mga paborito ninyong artista kung ano nga ba ang ibig sabihin ng "love" sa kanila.
Base sa mga sagot nila, mapapansin na ito ay may kinalaman sa pinagdaanan o pinagdadaanan nila at kung paano ito nagkaroon ng impact sa personal nilang buhay. O, depende sa environment na ginagalawan nila o mga taong nakapaligid sa kanila and how love was demonstrated to them.
Pero ilan sa mga celebrity na tinanong ng PEP ang nag-pass at hindi muna nagbigay ng definition nila ng pag-ibig. Ayon sa kanila, kung may pinakamahirap i-define, ito ay ang ang salitang "love."
Narito ang sagot ng ilang celebrities sa tanong na: "What is love?"
Chynna Ortaleza: "Love is something we cannot live without. It's the most powerful emotion for me and it can influence so many aspects of life. Something this magical can only come from God and I thank Him every day for allowing me to express my love in every way, shape and form."
Biboy Ramirez: "Love is a mystery that can never be explained."
Pauleen Luna: "Love is very hard to find but so worth it. Love is my family, friends, God."
Joross Gamboa: "Love is the air I breathe, love is the food I eat, love is the water I drink, love is where I sink. Love is my one full meal, love is reel and real, love is what I feel, love is so so real... Love is here and there, inside me and everywhere. Love heals and makes as well. With love, there is no farewell. Love is unexplainable, undeniable, irresistible, unforgettable."
Candy Pangilinan: "Love is more than an emotion. It's a decision."
Jay Perillo: "Love is what makes you do those stupid things. It makes you forget what PRIDE is. It makes you stay up late at night thinking about that one face that can keep you smiling all day long. LOVE is the only thing that has the power to make you happy and sad."
Jolina Magdangal: "Love is MARK [Escueta]. Never knew someone who's so loving and always positive in everything until I met him. And because of that...Love is a BLESSING."
Mark Escueta: "First time kong maintindihan yung tunay na meaning ng love kay Jolina [Magdangal]. Siya yung best example ng love. Naging mabuting tao ako dahil sa kanya. Pag tunay yung love, mararamdaman mo sa paligid mo, pananaw mo sa buhay, relationships mo with family and friends. Pati ang matagal mo nang mundo, gumaganda."
Kris Bernal: "Love is when I think of the person 24/7 and every time we're together, I always feel butterflies in my stomach!"
Marvin Agustin: "Love sees roses without thorns."
Gelli de Belen: "Love in a relationship means respecting each other's individuality and needs but always willing to compromise with losing one's self."
Bangs Garcia: "Love is complicated. Love is not all about good things. It may bring you to chaos at one point but it may also bring you up to cloud 9 in just a wink of an eye. But one thing's for sure, when you love someone and took the risk of all the possible consequences, then be prepared, don't be a coward. Love is worth taking the risks though one could get hurt, rather than ranting 'what ifs...'"
AJ Perez: "Love is an emotion of strong affection that brings people together intimately."
Glaiza de Castro: "Love is accepting and learning."
Christian Bautista: "Love is patient and kind."
Carlo Gonzalez: "Love is the complete and total offering of one's self to another/others. It's selfless, never pretentious, never proud. Both simple and complex. Evident and constant. But, primarily it is a choice one has to make in order for it to manifest."
JC Tiuseco: "Love is when you love the person even there's no more reason to do so."
Carl Guevara: "Love is not blind. It just only sees what matters."
Angelu de Leon: "Love for me is an expression of unselfishness. Love is obedient. To sum it all up...1 Corinthians 13 4-8. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered. It keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."
Gladys Reyes: "Love for me is my family. True love is unconditional."
Marian Rivera: "Ang love para sa akin, ito ay isang magandang biyaya galing sa Maykapal na walang anumang makakahigit na materyal."
Ikaw, ano ang kahulugan ng pag-ibig sa 'yo?
Happy Hearts Day to all!
