Love. Abstract but universally felt in all its forms. What comes to your mind when you think of it? I remember hearing somewhere that the opposite of love is not hate but to be left behind. That made me think. Hate is still a powerful emotion. It consumes in the same way love does. Weirdly, love and hate could be considered twins with different outlooks. One could feed or starve the other into existence. To leave behind is to outgrow and all that linked the two together. That is the true opposite of love.

Don't laugh. During one of my marathon Criminal Minds reruns sweet Reid conversationally said “...maybe the events in our lives were set in motion a long time ago. There’s an old Buddhist saying that, when you meet your soulmate, remember that the act to bring you together was 500 years in the making. So, always appreciate and be kind to each other.".

Isn't that a beautiful description?
