The person you love should make you feel more than you are, not less. Their love should make you love yourself more. They should not only make you a better person, but make you believe in the best and truest version of yourself. They should build you up, not tear you down. They should make you feel like you can take on the world.
Healthy love should make you feel secure and fulfilled, healthy love should make you happy and feel enough. Love should feel like home. Healthy love, a healthy and cozy home.
Love makes you brave, unafraid of jumping, of falling, because you know someone will be there to catch you when you fall, to help you put the pieces there together. You know you’re not alone and you have someone to count on. That you have a home to go back to.
Love isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, or butterflies and roses. It is the thrill of weathering the storm, the achievement of overcoming adversity, together.
Love is freedom, love is acceptance, love is respect, love is care, love is support, love is hate, love is pain, love is sharing, love is joy, love is romance, love is magic.
Love the the promise to keep all of that alive for each other, unconditionally.
