    • I like it too. It seems that when we go searching for love we can sometime perceive things, or people, to be loveable but in reality it is just our mind trying its best to find what we desire. In doing so we end up seeing only the good parts of a person or thing and we end up ignoring the undesirable parts. When love is “giv’n unsought” and is just naturally happening it means that you see all the good and bad parts and you are taking that person or thing as a whole and loving them for what they are as opposed to loving them for what you think they are.
