Basically, love is caring about someone more than yourself. What does that mean exactly? Let me explain. Love is more than just a feeling. Yes, love is a feeling, but that’s only part of it. The other part of love is what separates love from infatuation. If you think about it, the “feeling” part of love and infatuation could be considered identical. It’s no wonder so many infatuated couples think they’re in love. Everything else love is is what blows people’s minds. It’s just so confusing. But just because you don’t understand it doesn’t mean you can’t feel it.
Love is the most wonderful thing you can feel. It can also be the worst, but I’ll get to that later. Love is when you can’t be apart from someone for long. They’re always on your mind. And no matter what you do, or what they do to you, your heart still leads you back to them. Love is when you’ve had the worst day and all they need to do is smile, and that’s enough to forget everything else. When you’re in love you just know it. Love is the hardest thing to explain. It’s a mix of just about everything. It is joy and pain, hope and despair. It’s a mix of opposites. That’s why it is so confusing. It doesn’t seem possible, but it is.
Like I said before, love can be the worst thing you can feel. Especially if you the love the one you can’t have, which happens the majority of the time. Love just isn’t worth it of you don’t have to work for it. Nothing is. To put it simply, love tears you part. Nothing hurts more than to next to the one you love knowing they don’t feel the same. Love hurts.
Although all that may be true, it’s all worth it. It’s because love is not about you, it’s about the other person. Their happiness is more important than yours. You can be falling apart, and if they’re ok, then you’re going to make it through. Love is not jealous. If you really love someone, you’ll let them be with someone else. You’re always there for them no matter how much it hurts. Whenever they’re sad or hurt, you’re right there. Love is self-giving. It’s being able to say that their happiness is the only thing that matters, and meaning it. Love is all this and much more that I could never explain to you in words.
