We always hear all this talk about love. But what does it even mean? It’s so beautiful, so raw, and so indefinable. It cannot be fully expressed in just one word, one sentence, even in one paragraph.
Love is when you don’t even understand what you’re feeling, because you can’t even find the words to describe it. Love is not about buying fancy things for someone.
Love is being there for your partner no matter what, and listening to them through tough times. Love is standing up to your partner, and telling them how you really feel. Love is communicating your needs and boundaries towards each other.
Love is feeling excited and happy for your partner when they succeed, as though it was your own success. Love is about the small things that you do for your partner, like checking in to see if they are ok, or letting them pick what movie the two of you will watch together.
Love is showing up for your partner, even if you don’t really want to be there. It’s about making compromises and sacrifies for them. Love is about accepting your partner for everything that they are, flaws include. Love is about respecting your partners dreams, and letting them chase them.
Love is that incredible feeling when you wake up next to them and have them in your arms, looking into your eyes and into your soul. It’s that feeling that there’s no place in the world you’d rather be.
Love is an adrenaline rush, it’s a choice, it’s a risk. Love is beautiful.
