When love beckons, you should follow it although the road ahead may be hard and steep.

When we are in love, we experience both joy and sadness. Love brightens our lives and makes us human.

However, not everyone welcomes love. Some are afraid of being hurt or rejected in love. Whatever the reason, we should not shut out love from our lives by saying it is impossible to find.

I always show my love towards my friends. My friends said I was so kind that I would do anything for them. In fact, they have also shown their affection towards me.

A saying goes like this: the quickest way to receive love is to give; the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly; the best way to keep love is to give it wings.

From the Editor

Thanks for your letter, Angel. Love is a very important emotion - whether it's romantic love, love for our family, friends or pets - it can make life even more enjoyable.

However, we must be careful not to be blinded by love. Sometimes, when we love someone, we forget that the object of our affection is less than perfect. Everyone has flaws - and while they can be reasons to love someone, we mustn't believe that someone is better than us.

Love is a positive emotion - so if we find ourselves upset by love, perhaps it's time to reassess a relationship, whether it's with your boyfriend or girlfriend, your parents, siblings or friends.

Remember: love, in all its forms, makes the world go round!
