My version of true love is....
- Hanging on when you want to let go and walk away.
- Admiring the character of the person you chose to be in "the trenches" with.
- Building the other person up to be the best version of themselves.
- Holding your loved one's hand when they're afraid.
- Going to sit through a 2 hour movie that you don't want to see, but the other person does.
- Listening when you want to talk.
- Commitment...choosing integrity and fidelity at all costs.
- Forgiving and moving on.
- Looking at the other person at their grubbiest, and still thinking they're beautiful, because you can see their soul.
- Acceptance...not trying to make someone what they're not.
- Laughing in the middle of chaos.
- Respecting one another.
- Choosing to be nice over being right.
- Sacrifice, Compromise, Cooperation, Negotiation...did I mention Sacrifice?
Happy Valentines Day.
