Love is EVERYTHING!

LOVE is EVERYTHING, Everything💕 Because love, real love, is not about you. It has never been, and will never be, about you. The purpose of love is not your happiness and pleasure and continuous, immediate self-gratification. That is not love. Love is not about having someone there to make you feel good and make you happy.

The purpose of love is itself: the act of loving, the art of loving, to learn to love more. To love better. To fail and try again, over and over and over, because that is the whole damn point! Because what else is there in life but love, really? Love is choosing somebody, choosing something, and choosing them, over everything else, over your ego, over yourself, unfailingly, every day.

The choice to love another doesn’t only happen when you start dating, or when you move in together, or get engaged, or get married, or have a child. And neither does it become perfect or easy or even easier at all after any of that, oh no, not on your life. You have to make a choice, every single day, to care about others, and to care about others more than you care about yourself.

Love is everything, everything😘❤

“To love is nothing. To be loved is something. To love and be loved is everything”
