What Love Really Means

I believe many people don’t know what real love is and I’m going to attempt to explain it.  First of all, my belief is that the only reason we have the ability to love is because we are made in the image of God Almighty and He has provided us with the example.

True Love isn’t just a feeling. I’m gonna throw that part out first. Sure, a big part of it is a feeling but true love is loving a person even when you don’t feel like it. Doing something romantic when you’re not feeling all that romantic. Being kind when you don’t feel like being kind. Love is not giving someone else everything she wants, it’s giving her what she needs. True love doesn’t mean you’re all the sudden gonna have no problems and everything’s going to go right. It means that even when things are bad, you try your best to make them better. Many people believe that people truly in love don’t argue. Don’t believe this myth. No two people are exactly alike and that causes disagreements but that doesn’t mean you’re not in love. There has to be room to disagree to allow for growth in the two individuals. People should push the other to be better and call her out when she isn’t being the best she can be and hopefully she calls you out on your behavior. True love is more willpower then anything else. It’s saying, “I’m gonna love you through all your changes, all your mishaps, and even if you change into a completely different person. I will stand by you and help you along the way.” And if you get that feeling on both sides you and your other are in a good place. People are always changing throughout their entire lives. If you can’t accept the person you love is going to change then you need to rethink the relationship. A happy ending is only the beginning of a new beautiful story if you have perseverance and understanding, and the willingness to change together.

  1. “Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.” ~Louis de Bernieres
