Love is....

March 13, 2013

"Lust is clearly not love. Love is based on more than just physical attraction. Sure, attraction is a factor, but love goes deeper than that. Love is based on caring, friendship, commitment and trust. When you are in love it is as if you have your best most trusted friend at your side AND you feel physically attracted to them. It is the best of both worlds! Love is a shared feeling between two people who have a vested interest in one anothers happiness. Love is not about jealousy. It is not about conflict. It is not about testing. Love is a positive feeling. If it is tainted by mistrust, jealousy, insecurity or spitefulness it is not really love but merely a pale copy. Love is the total surrender of your heart to another person with the security of knowing they will treat it better than you will. Love should feel good. It should not feel bad. Love should make you want to be a better person, it should not lead you to do something self destructive. Love is not demanding of your spirit but lifts it and makes it glow. Love is a good thing. Anything less is lust, deep friendship or attraction."

The one who wanted to know me when I was invisible. The one who held me every time I couldn't keep my demons at bay. The one who always gives me all he can just to see me smile...

People tell me not to get too caught up with my head in the clouds when it comes to love while I'm this young, to not talk too much about it in case it falls apart, and I fall.

But there's no place I'd rather be, than here, on top of the world with you.
We are gold.
