True Love.

My version of true love is....
  1. Hanging on when you want to let go and walk away.

  2. Admiring the character of the person you chose to be in "the trenches" with.

  3. Building the other person up to be the best version of themselves.

  4. Holding your loved one's hand when they're afraid.

  5. Going to sit through a 2 hour movie that you don't want to see, but the other person does.

  6. Listening when you want to talk.

  7. Commitment...choosing integrity and fidelity at all costs.

  8. Forgiving and moving on.

  9. Looking at the other person at their grubbiest, and still thinking they're beautiful, because you can see their soul.

  10. Acceptance...not trying to make someone what they're not.

  11. Laughing in the middle of chaos.

  12. Respecting one another.

  13. Choosing to be nice over being right.

  14. Sacrifice, Compromise, Cooperation, Negotiation...did I mention Sacrifice?

Happy Valentines Day.
