This Too, Will Pass ~ TO LOVE SOMEONE
is to experience every other emotion outside of love
and still come back to love.
is to feel hurt or pain and be able to overcome it
and forget about it.
is to realize that the other person is not perfect.
It is being able to see their bad parts, but put emphasis
on the parts you love, and gladly accept them for
the individual he/she is.
is to lay a strong base for your feelings, but leave
room for some fluctuation, because to feel exactly
the same way all the time would leave no room for
growth, experience and learning.
is to be strong at accepting new ideas and facts.
It is knowing that a person will not stay the same,
but also that change happens gradually.
is to give until your heart aches. The greatest gifts
shared between two people are trust and understanding,
which come from love. Love is giving one-hundred-and-ten-percent
of yourself and only wanting something as simple as
a smile in return.
is to be able to see not only with your eyes but with
your heart. It is to develop insight into your feelings
and the other person’s feelings, and to have
a good understanding of your relationship.
is to give of yourself totally, saying, "Here
I am, and all that I am loves you very much."
It is not twisting and turning and changing yourself
to gain approval, but it is improving yourself so
that your good points catch the other’s attention
and overshadow your faults.
