People in relationships often declare they are in love after dating for 3 months or even 5 months and rush into it all without knowing because they are excited. I totally am guilty of that. I Honestly did not understand the meaning of the word "love" and what it means to truly love someone unconditionally, until just a little under a year ago.
Saying " I love you " is easy. It is the easiest part until you unravel all of each other's habits, likes, dislikes, passion, sadness, etc. You unravel each other's souls, you unravel the unique truth of each other. It becomes the most beautiful passion and feeling to be completely imperfect in front of someone. To be able to connect with or without words, to be vulnerable beyond belief, to let it all go. Love is much more than the exciting impulses you get while falling for someone's smile. Love is making sure they are loving themselves before they love you. Putting their needs first before your own and not resenting them for it. Expecting them to do the right thing and forgiving when they don't. RESPECTING EACH OTHER is a big one!! Appreciating them for the little things they do even when the big things out shines the little things. The inspiration that you both give each other to wake up and get out of bed in the morning because you are loved by so many. No anxious butterflies because that person makes you feel 100% comfortable and safe. Strong Communication and without hesitation to tell each other what's on each other's mind and telling each other what needs to be said even when it hurts. From Sharing the loudest laughs to the best shoulders to cry on. Supporting and cheering for every failure and every success. I believe there is more to a relationship than just love however showing them they are loved is super important ! Love is there when you are at your best but also at your lowest mess.
Often people go looking for a relationship and look for that companion high and low but not us. Both of us were not looking for anything and we found each other by pure serendipity. We make each other better people. I will always be happy to walk along the dark side with him until we find some sunshine. #3yearsandahalf
