Jealousy Or Love?

Improved Essays
True love very seldom happens, but when people love someone sincerely, with all their hearts, they are ready to do and to undergo anything for the sake of this love. Love forces people to dream, to fill the world and their lives with bright thoughts, and to wish to go through a new life with their darlings. The princess’s decision “had been made after days and nights of anguished deliberation”(Stockton). The question arises as to whether the forces, dedication, or selflessness will allow the princess to make the correct choice. Whether she will manage to forgive all and to understand everything to some day be near the one whom she loves? Finally, she comes to a decision that if they, as a couple, are not able to exist anymore due to her social …show more content…

In addition, she, as a successor to the throne, had a power not only over her lover, but also over all the community which proves one again that there was no jealousy in her …show more content…
Love is when one is not able to imagine himself or herself without the one whom he or she loves. Love is a wish to live only for the sake of a sweetheart who begins his or her lover’s day with a smile and makes a darling to rejoice at every instant. Only in such a person do people frequently see the meaning of their lives, only his or her smile or his or her look force the heart to fight more strongly. Love is not when it is “within limits;” it is when one lover is ready to commit himself or herself for the sake of his or her darling, when there are no limits and no frameworks. Love is self-sacrifice. There is nothing more pleasant, than to commit oneself for the sake of one’s darling. Love is a matter of overcoming difficulties to bring many times more happiness; moreover, this overcoming helps each to know one another better. If a person is not capable of love, a couple will never be able to take pleasure in the feeling of it. Love is not when one lover wants to be joyful; love is when one wants to make the other delighted. It is not a blind adoration of an object of love, but respect and ability to appreciate it. These are the reasons that the princess gives her lover to the maiden; she decides to let him marry another to make him happy and to show her true love for

    Love is all about feeling something. A connection with another individual that affects them not only in their social life but deep down, it pulls at their heart.
