What Love Really Means

So many people don’t understand the true meaning of love. Love isn’t about seeing how long you can last together, liking the way someone looks, or seeing how far you can get physically. Love is about doing anything to keep a smile on the person you love’s face. Love isn’t about loving someone for what they can do for you. Love is about giving until you have nothing left to give! Love isn’t a feeling, it is an action. That is why the divorce rate is so high. People act based upon how they feel. They think that just because the “butterflies in your stomach” feeling is gone, they need something or someone new. Love has to be a choice sometimes. (When your significant other makes you mad, you don’t necessarily want to give them a bear hug.) You have to work through it and choose to love them. Love is thinking about that person every time you have to make a life choice because you see them as the other half of you, and you care how it would affect them. Love is also about being there for someone, no matter what happens and no matter how hard things get. We don’t see this kind of love much anymore. If you have true love, hold on. It isn’t always perfect, but it sure is worth it!
