Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies, Aristotle.
Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone ― we find it with another, Thomas Merton.
Love is a precious and delicate thing. Love is finding the rose amongst the thorns. Love makes life worthwhile, beautiful, and even magic. Love is as real as it gets, when so much else (mass media, social media, advertising, and propaganda) is fake. It is enjoying the simple things together, knowing there’s someone who will stand by your side, not matter what or when, and support you always.
And yet, broken relationships are on the rise, more and more people feel alone, unhappy, disconnected from others, and leading lives that are void of meaning and happiness. The big question is why. What are we doing so wrong?.
When you start a relationship, you should consider what is behind your love:
Normally, in any relationship, both partners are attracted to what the other has and does. This attraction is natural, logical, and it could be the prelude to a long, happy, and stable relationship. However, many couples stop here. They do not go much deeper. They are only attracted by what they can see and forget that the most important thing is in the heart, in the deepest feelings of respect, empathy, care, and love.
Love is shown in the loving care of a parent, in the tenderness of a mother, in the small details of everyday life that may go unnoticed by many, in a sweet smile, a kind word, in listening someone who needs to talk. You want someone to love the real you, who you really are, all that you are, the good, the bad, and the ugly - Not just a part of you, what you do or have right now.
