Anonymous asked: what is love ? in your own words.
I think love isn’t wanting someone but needing someone. It’s like without them you can’t even breathe. Cliche? I know. Here’s some more.. It’s that huge leap of faith, a peaceful landing is never guaranteed but you take it anyway. It’s commitment, no matter how long you are away from that person, you stay faithful to them because there’s no one else you’d rather be with. It’s giving them everything you can because you want to make it work. It’s support, trust and honesty. It’s giving that person your heart and letting them do what they want with it, either take it and never let go or forget you ever gave it to them in the first place. It’s remembering all the good experiences and forgiving and learning from the bad ones. It’s not you calming them down when they yell, but yelling just as loud, right back at them to wake them the fuck up and keeping them grounded, and they’d do the same thing back. It’s not them bringing you roses everyday or cute things that make your relationship presentable. It’s after a long fight that kills the life and bones out of both of you and you still get that “I’m sorry baby, it was a stupid fight but you’re still wrong” text right after, or still showing up at his front door the next morning. It’s not about saying all the right things or knowing exactly how to handle each and every single situation that’s thrown at you but overcoming it TOGETHER and grow as a couple. It’s not you cuddling with them saying everything is going to be alright, it’s you standing there admitting you’re just as scared as they are. It’s you putting you’re heart into their hands and trusting them completely, and you can because what’s a relationship without trust? Some movies are unrealistic examples of love, they portray that love has to be perfect, he has to do this he has to do that, but sorry to break it to ya.. PERFECT IS NOT REAL. There is going to be bumps in the road, but you have to push through it and reach for that better tomorrow. Love makes you go out of our minds. It makes us erase every single line we normally wouldn’t cross, its not about fencing ourselves in. The fights and the tears will come(lets be serious) but its all worth it because you’re with that person. The fights make you realize that you are comfortable enough with that person to speak your mind and just yell about it. But you’re still so close that you can forgive them and carry on with being in your relationship. I don’t think you have to be married or close to marriage to be in love, to be honest I 100% believe in young love. Adults are ignorant when they say we don’t know anything about it. LOVE HAS NO AGE. Love is wanting them to be happy whether or not it is with you. Seeing their smile makes your day. In my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly who you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly pretty, etc etc. The right person is still going to think the sun shines out of you’re ass. That’s the kind of person worth sticking with. They make you smile, and I don’t mean a normal smile.. They make you smile like an idiot. You want to hold them all the time and spend time with them because there’s no one else you’d rather be with.
That is love.. In my own words.
