#LoveAboveAll: Beyond Boundaries and Colors

June 7, 2021

Sharing is caring!

Our definition of love changes as we age. And the older we get, the more we realize how difficult it is to encapsulate its meaning into words. Because the truth is: love looks different depending on whos looking and this is the reason why we have to understand that no one spectacles fit all. We have to go beyond our preconceived notions and stereotypes of love being limited only to certain genders, colors, ages, cultures, and ideologies.

Despite the numerous campaigns and humanitarian initiatives that advocate the freedom to love, up until now, the stigma towards unconventional relationships and fear of coming out remains. Homophobia, transphobia, violence, and harassment still exist and continue to paralyze the fundamental rights of every individual to love and be loved.

Its about time that we free ourselves from the reins that hold us back from loving other people. Its about time that we acknowledge that love is more than just a feeling: its a choice, an action, a universal movement that liberates us from the willful demands and unjust limitations of society. Its about time that we choose to #loveaboveall.

“#LoveAboveAll all to me is not really a statement but rather a dedication or a commitment to myself and others around me in accepting all kinds of happiness and love in any way, shape, or form.” – Connor Duigan, 20
Nicky Disa Gen-Z Magazine
“What comes to my mind when I hear #LoveAboveAll is no matter what skin color, gender, ethnicity, and sexuality you are, love has no boundaries. Love is happiness, pureness, and joy. Love comes in all sorts of forms, relationships, family, friendships, and more. Love has no label attached to it.” – Nicky Dissa, 19
Titus Low Gen-Z Magazine
“The first thing that comes to my mind when I hear #LoveAboveAll is the church. The love of God. All humans should be treated with equal rights, regardless.” – Titus Low, 22
Clarence Tay Gen-Z Magazine
“Love is a motivator for somebody to get through tough times. Many people cite love for their partner/family/friends as what encourages them during tumultuous times. Love motivates people to do great things and even make big sacrifices.” – Clarence Tay, 28

“Love conquers everything. Nothing else matters when there is love, like religion and race. Love is insane because you are willing to do everything just to make the person you love happy. I’ve been there, done that. loving freely is something I’ve never regret.” – Patricia Tan, 22
Marcus Lim Gen-Z Magazine
“#LoveAboveAll to me signifies the importance of love regardless of any other factors because love is transparent and that love conquers all.” – Marcus Lim, 21
Aidan Zecha Gen-Z Magazine
“I think what #LoveAboveAll means is that love knows no boundaries. There are no rules. Love is love.” – Aidan Zecha, 22
Anushka Nushi Gen-Z Magazine
“When I hear #LoveAboveAll I think about the fact that love is more important than anything else. At its core, love transcends religion, socioeconomic status, race, age, gender, and culture. It’s a binding force that brings people together by eliminating interpersonal differences.” – Anushka Bhargava, 20

Maybe we should stop asking what love is and start focusing on what love can. By changing the way we attack the question, we also see a better picture of love a diversified version that embraces differences and celebrates individuality. In the face of adversities, love fuels us to keep going, to stand with our preferences, to be more accepting towards unique relationships, to cancel out double standards, and to make sure that everyone is given equal opportunities to understand and express what they feel without fear, without doubt, and without judgment.

Will love ever win? Nothing is certain at this time. But surely, its worth fighting for. Weve come a long way to make sure that everyone feels accepted, protected, and supported and we still have a long way to go. In these difficult moments of overwhelming hatred and prejudice, love reminds us to widen our horizons, grow beautifully into people of substance and understanding, and take pride in who we truly are.
