People who are not in love or who fantasize about being in love seem to think that it is all about fancy dates and romantic nights. They focus on finding someone with the best looks and tons of money instead of looking at someone’s heart and personality.
There was a time when even I thought falling in love and being in love meant holding hands all the time, flowers for no reason, expensive gifts, and endless posts of social media. There was a time when I thought that I had to be a certain age before I could settle down. There was a time when I thought I needed to date tons of people before I would know what kind of person would be best for me.
The harsh reality is that love can be difficult sometimes. I am not saying all the time, every day or even every month, but sometimes it can be very challenging. Especially when we now live in a world where when things are broken we do not fix them. Instead we throw them away and replace them with something newer and prettier and better. Sometimes those new things will usually only break even faster than the older version.
Love means different thing to different people, but to me it is simple. Love means never making your significant other feel as though they are not good enough or that they have to compete with someone else for your attention. Love means watching movies you don’t always want to or attending concerts that you don’t really care to attend. Love means taking someone else into consideration before making a major decision.
Love is so beautiful when two people actually want to be in love. Whenever two people are actually honest and caring and actually want to build a life together. Unfortunately, some people get into relationships they never really wanted to be in. They end up breaking hearts and trust and damaging another person. This is just one of the risks everyone takes whenever they open their heart and life to love.
Love is always worth the risk! The opportunity to fall asleep in the arms of the person you love every single night or always have someone who cares about how your day was is something almost everyone is the world looks for. Just having someone there to enjoy the simplest things in life like a walk in the park or binging on Netflix series can change your attitude and outlook.
