I think it is unfair to base ideas of what love should be on one thing or another. Love isn’t a solid fact. It’s always different, always shows up in different forms, and is always there when you think it isn’t. I think the only common factor is that love is positive. I’m not saying love always leads to positive things (i.e. Romeo and Juliet) but the impact it leaves on your life is lasting. It is there for you to compare your feelings to and it is there to help you get through the worst of times. Maslow didn’t include love on his hierarchy for no reason. We need it in our lives to survive. I believe dying of a broken heart is a real thing. Love is electric, everlasting, proven, important, beneficial, and most importantly beautiful. Love because you can, because it is beautiful.
Everyone needs it, everyone deserves it.
I read this the other day on Le Love and it really just captured everything I've been thinking and feeling and cultivating for the last month or so. It is a beautiful definition of the ultimate undefinable act. To love. To you x
