I hope by now you have noticed that I posted the different kinds of love in a particular order. I started with the least desirable kind of love and will end with what should be the most desired… the kind of love most people aspire to have.💔🖤💚💛💙🧡💜❤️
Unlike many relationships today where people run at the first sign of trouble, Pragma love is an enduring love. Pragma love is not always perfect, but then again, nothing is. The key here is that although couples may have their ups and downs they hang in there, deal with it, learn each other, stay out of each other’s way, work it out, respect each other, communicate their feelings-verbally or visually- but they stay together…through thick and thin! 💪🏾🙏🏾
Pragma love is defined as “a unique bonded love that matures over many years. It’s an everlasting love between a couple that chooses to put equal effort into their relationship. Commitment and dedication are required to reach “Pragma.” Instead of “falling in love,” you are “standing in love” with the partner you want by your side indefinitely.”-FTD
So, Today I would like to salute some of the people in my life who were role models for me growing up. The love they shared was the perfect example of Pragma Love. Their love endured and stood the test of time. It was the kind of love I saw when I went to some of my friends’ homes. It was also the reason I spent so much time there instead of in my own home. I remember one of my friend’s mom gently telling me that it was time for me to go home. Their home was a place that made me feel safe and warm. I secretly wished I could live there.💒
Today I am celebrating the love of Florence and Jim Harper, Magdalen and Eddie Robinson, and Dorothy and Harold Forth.
Thank you for showing a young impressionable girl what it means to love someone unconditionally..
We are lovers through and through
And though we made it through the storm
I really want you to realize
I really want to put you on
I've been searching for someone
To satisfy my every need
Won't you be my inspiration
Be the real love that I need ❤️
Real love-MJ Blige
