That is probably the toughest question I have ever had to think about. I mean, I am the type of person who loves so easily. I am willing to give my entire heart to someone who I’ve known for a month. But now they are leaving me. And honestly, I can’t feel my heart beat…I feel like I can’t breath and my cheeks are so stained from tears that you would think it’s their natural color. They have to leave me to do the right thing. So I am proud of them and I am happy for them. They tell me that they won’t stop loving me and that we can be together in the future, but how do I know that being 3,000 miles away won’t take away that love for me…
Then I started thinking about this question. Believe it or not..I have an answer. If they were to move to the opposite end of the earth and never take me back or love me again or anything like that…I would still love them. I don’t love them BECAUSE they love me back. Thats not what love is about. Its about giving love. Receiving it is a bonus. When they leave I will still love them. If they hate me, I will still love them. If they come back, I will still love them. No matter what. Because THAT is what love is. Its a one way street starting from ME. People think that being terrified and having a rush of adrenaline coursing through their body and needing somebody by their side is love…but it’s not. That is the need to be loved and is totally and completely different than love itself. When someone realizes they love someone, the words that come to their mind are “I love You.” Not “do you love me.” You love them just because. I mean we love our families and we just know that we do. We don’t need confirmation of it. It just comes naturally. But that is how all love should be. So I am starting on this road of mine. I will send out my love with no hope or need for it to come back but I will find happiness in the fact that there are people out their receiving my love and deserving it.
So to the person who I am referring, whether they ever read this or not..I hope they get the message. That I will always love them. If they are ever down without hope or they feel alone and lost..know that I am here. With love for them unconditionally. That is how it will always be. There will always be someone out there who loves them.
I don’t know what to think of people who don’t appreciate all the love that they have to give. It’s not about receiving. So just love and be happy that you have someone to love. If you give love and happiness you will feel it and you will be happy in return.
And THAT is what love is.
