"When You Love Someone"
Love. Love is something that I talk about everyday of my life. With my loved ones or to myself. When it comes to love I always have to somehow re evaluate it. Do you know what I mean? Being in love is a dream, but it is also one of the hardest jobs you have to keep up with. Yes, I said love is a job. When you are in a relationship you are suddenly having someone come in and share apart of your life with you. It is like taking care of yourself, but taking care of another part of yourself. You have to be open with your partner, boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife. If you want your love to work, you have to work together and have an open communication with each other. You each have to have your own identities and your own lives, but at the end of the day you come together as one. When you are vastly different from your other half, things can be hard. Trust me, I've learned this and it is a rollercoaster. People sometimes say they are in love or they get told "I love you" for the first time. It is a special moment when you know that feeling of love. But sometimes people rush into it, or think they are in love. They are infatuated by the idea of it. I sometimes find myself questioning if I fall into this category. But then I stop myself because I know what it means to love. Even if the one I love, doesn't truly undersnd it sometimes. You know when you love someone, you would do anything for them. Hell, you would even lay your life down for that person. You know you are in love when the first person and the last person you want to talk to in the day is that special someone. You want to just open up about everything and anything. You would gladly take a second of suffering from something you don't like just to see the person you love happier than anything in this world. You know you are in love when you feel you have something to loose. You know you are in love when you look at the one you love and tell yourself, how is this real? How are you mine? You feel this greater power over you and you just feel so uplifted. Then in the somber moments you know you are in love when you just want to be there for the one you love every single second for the rest of your life. Love can seem beautiful, but it is hard. When you love someone, you fight and disagree, but you always look forward to how you are going to make up and work through it. That is what makes love stronger. When you love someone, sometimes you may love them more than they may love you. That is when you lay down some ground rules for your heart. Love is fragile and when you get hurt, it hurts. Tell yourself that if you aren't feeling like this person you are in love with is truly, 100%, at the same level of love that you have for them, then let your heart speak out and say what you are feeling. If the other person isn't willing to work with you and meet you in the middle, then he or she doesn't love you like you love him or her. When you love someone you speak your truth. Love is not about saying I love you. I love you is a strong saying. When you love someone and you say I love you, you better mean it. And if you believe that the person you love, doesn't know how to love like you love them, then they have probably never loved someone, like you do.
