New Delhi:

Actress Kajal Aggarwal wrote a lengthy post about how her perception of love changed after she spent years "spent berating my own single status". The 34-year-old actress, who visited the Taj Mahal for the first time, revealed that the "symbol of love" prompted her to put down her thoughts on Instagram. Talking about the general notion of placing "romantic love on a pedestal", Kajal Aggarwal wrote: "So, for many single people - me included - we can mistakenly think we're not good enough, or feel incomplete without this one, specific type of love. After many years spent berating my own single status, I could see how carelessly narrow my own view of love had been and how short-sighted it is to view romantic love as a prerequisite to a happy life."

Being single is a choice and doesn't signify a "lack of options", said Kajal: "For many, being single is not about a lack of options for love, but a choice - a choice to apply a broader definition to love, and see the value in all its forms. (Also, your happiness depends wholly on you, share that joy and completeness with your partner instead of thrusting the responsibility solely upon them)."

The actress roped in her father for some adorable pictures and attached her note to one of them:

Witnessing this #symboloflove made me reflect upon this topic, taking this opportunity to share my thoughts : In a culture where we tend to place romantic love on a pedestal, we can easily overlook the dynamic ways to experience love. There's the depth of close friendships, the sense of belonging in a community, the intensity of an artistic practice, a connection to our work, or any experience that provides companionship, support, self-discovery, and even the feelings of both elation and misery. But this isn't the common narrative, so for many single people - me included - we can mistakenly think we're not good enough, or feel incomplete without this one, specific type of love. After many years spent berating my own single status, I could see how carelessly narrow my own view of love had been and how short-sighted it is to view romantic love as a prerequisite to a happy life. For many, being single is not about a lack of options for love, but a choice - a choice to apply a broader definition to love, and see the value in all its forms. (Also, Your happiness depends wholly on you, share that joy and completeness with your partner instead of thrusting the responsibility solely upon them) #enjoyingthesymboloflove #withpeopleilove #myvillage
