WHAT DOES LOVE MEAN TO YOU? || LOVE PHASES; THE TRILOGY


"And I’ve realized that the Beatles got it wrong. 
Love isn’t all we need — love is all there is." 
— Morgan Matsonon

Love is the little things you do. Yes, the very little things you do matter the most. The thought of you doing it makes it all perfect.

LOVE is the patient and kind way with which you handle your partner.



What is love to you??

Every February 14, Valentine's day is celebrated all over the world and then I ask myself why separate a day for lovers? Isn't showing love meant to be daily? I mean love that person everyday even when you don't feel like it..

I think the best way to celebrate Valentine’s Day is to make it an expression of your heart. It may mean gifts or a special evening out or simply time together. Remembering the people in our lives that showed us how to love is a good way to increase our sense of gratitude. But no matter what you do for Valentine’s Day, make sure you are taking care of what is really important: the unique person of your partner and the deeper meaning and purpose of your relationship.

So, what can you do  on Valentine’s Day? You can focus on celebrating the virtues of love, in any relationship you choose to honor that day. If you want to be authentic, then you can talk about your dilemma with your girlfriend/boyfriend, fiance/fiancee, husband/wife. If you want to foster a sense of support and acceptance, then ask him/her what is most important about the celebration, and then try to honor what it means to him/ her. If you’d like to foster a spirit of affection, then plan a date or a gift within your budget that recognizes the uniqueness of your partner.

Valentine’s Day and healthy relationships are not about being forced to show your affection. If you are coerced into an expensive gift or date night, then likely your relationship is struggling with acceptance and support. It may be your girlfriend/boyfriend is craving some assurance of how you feel about him/her or your commitment to the relationship. Grand gestures will not be able to replace emotional intimacy if the security of your bond is in question. If Valentine’s Day becomes an argument, then you likely have deeper conflicts to examine.


My friend, Ade Ash also wrote on LOVE PHASES; THE TRILOGY and the idea of this write ups is to mirror love in different context and to show love is multifaceted.

#Color.
Be a foe and not a friend, be an enemy and not a brother, be wicked, don't feign good for everything you do has a way of coming back to you.  Be the devil and not an angel for in this world demons reign supreme. Be coal, and not snow for whatever you touch turns black. Is black, bad? Is white, good? Why place colors into good or bad when all they are are colors? Colors are bright, colors are dull so mate what color are you?

#Brother!
Your past is the tunnel, your future is the light. What's in between is for your eyes only. You may think less of you but I think highly of you. The pain you hide downing shots of cheap liquor is something I resonate with high on life. 12 is the difference between us but with you I feel no difference. Let's look pass our struggles and have faith that our fates will be better than what it was like sleeping two on a bed, made for one.

#Why do you love me?
I wonder if you love me because you think me good enough. I wonder if you love me because you think I am the one; there are lots and scores of young men/women who outweigh me in class and riches. You see all that I am is a reflection of all that I have been through. I admit I may not know how to say the right words to you or make you feel the butterflies but you mean more to me than I worth myself, and in every currency of the world, you worth is compared to none. We never assured what tomorrow will bring but one thing is for certain, I want to be with you when the sun rises at dawn and hold your hands when it sets at dusk.

Happy Valentine's day.



I'm taking two of my revered readers out on a dinner date but I'll need you to answer two quick questions

1. What date, month and year did I start blogging?
2. How can you help promote the blog?

Kindly drop your answers guys. Good luck 😍😚.




My models, Folake and Aaron rocked African prints (be proud of your roots) for the valentine shoot. Do you have an idea on what to wear today? Not everyone likes the red cliche thing, that's why they rocked casuals too. At least Folake has got red lipsticks on and Aaron got blood running through his veins🤣🤣🤣.

  1. In quick response to your post being an avid reader and timeous follower who is perceptively motivated by your many posts. It pleasures me to answer in the regard of July 16th, 2016 being the onset of your blogging with the post "I STAND WITH EVERY WOMAN" and a subsequent and rather useful revitalization and resuscitation on January 5, 2018.

    In response to the question as to the promotion of the blog, I would accord with the wisdom in the saying that you cannot give what you don't have so then the prime of the need to promote this blog would necessarily be hinged first on having the requisite networking span so much so that a larger audience and by extension readers could be reach. I have considered this duly and in that regard would use valid networks gathered over the years to project the blog. The least of these media is perhaps the usage of my whatsapp status which house an average of 550 views in 24 hours to promote the blog.

    In the same vein of promoting the blog, I, being a writer who picks much interest in the psychology of readers would suggest useful as well as timeous posts which would be a cynosure for the moment and every eye that see mere captions would send a subsequent message to the brain which would direct the finger to click so to read the post on the blog.

    To wrap, timeous submissions of contemporary articles would be made to further the course of Victoria Oyedepo's blog.

    Thanks in anticipation of our dinner together. Kindly be assured of the greatest assurances of my utmost regards.

  2. Quite an insightful piece.
    I also believe there isn't any single day to celebrate love.
    Love isn't just a feeling, it is a culture, a way of live. Jesus told us to love our neighbours as ourselves, that's culture. It is best expressed through our actions not just on some "special days" but every day.
    Now everyone deserved to be loved, cause love is the backbone of humanity.
    Show love to as many people as you can.
    Love actually does cost a thing, but the fruits are countless.
    Shalom.
