- Love is lawless.
There are no rules. You make the rules and no one can say anything about it!
- Love isn’t sex.
That’s just one expression of it. All relationships have to find an expression of love that best suits that relationship. And that expression is really nobody else’s business.
- Love is unconditional.
When you love someone, you love who that person is, not what that person is.
- Love is a container for growth.
It’s two (or more) people who are trying to grow on different but aligned tracks. It’s supportive and encouraging and honest. You can try new things and expose your pains and grow in ways you never thought possible. There are difficult times and then there are good times that make it all worthwhile.
- Love isn’t dependent.
Love isn’t about needing somebody because you’re incomplete. Love is about recognizing that you’re whole and complete on your own, but that another person makes the journey much more fun. Love is about partnering up with somebody else to create something that’s never existed before.
- Love is worth fighting for.
You have to get up and fight for your love every single day. You have to fight to love yourself as you are.
- Love isn’t a choice.
Love isn’t conscious. It’s not something you can will into your life whenever you please. It will hardly ever come when you expect it to. It will hardly ever look like you thought it would. But you’ll know it when you feel it. It’s a feeling deep inside you that you don’t want to let go of. It’s a deeper, internal yearning that supersedes all reasoning. And, against all logic, you plunge full-force into this crazy little thing called love.
