Maybe you won’t agree with me, but the truth is that if you don’t love like you really mean it, you’re just wasting your time – and the time of the other person as well.
You see, I believe in loving like you really mean it. Like you give a damn. Like the other person means the world to you.
And you deserve this. You deserve someone who will give their all in the relationship.
I believe in holding hands and kissing in public. I believe in showing your love in public without worrying about what others might say.
I believe in flirting with the person you’ve been in a relationship with for years. I believe in showering them with the same amount of love, affection, and passion you showered them with at the beginning of your relationship.
I believe in romantic surprises and dinners; warm hugs and kisses; cuddling and fierce passion.
I believe in the power of acceptance. Because when you truly love someone, you accept them the way they are. You don’t try to change them or mold them into the person you want them to be.
I believe in the power of forgiveness. Because everyone deserves a second chance. Because when you forgive someone, you heal your wounds. You’re letting go of the resentment, anger, and pain you’ve been carrying within yourself.
I believe in the ability to let go of those who have hurt you and move on with your life.
I believe in the power of listening. Because when you listen to your significant other, you show them that their feelings and opinions matter to you. You let them know that you’re willing to help them overcome their deepest fears and insecurities. You show them that you won’t leave them to fight their battles on their own.
You let them know that you’ll stay no matter what.
I believe in empathy and compassion. I believe in always being there for the other person when they need your help and support or just someone to listen to them.
I believe in apologizing for your mistakes and wrongdoings. I believe in accepting responsibility for all the bad things you’ve said or done to your partner. I believe in repenting.
I believe in give and take in the relationship. I believe in making compromises and sacrifices for the sake of the relationship.
I believe in self-care because only when you take care of yourself, can you truly take care of others as well.
I believe in accepting ourselves the way we are, with all our flaws, insecurities, problems, and failures. Because if we don’t accept and cherish ourselves, how can we accept and truly love somebody else?
I believe in working on ourselves so as to become a better person both for ourselves and for the person we’re in love with.
I believe in honest conversations and showing ourselves the way we are. No pretending, no playing mind games. No wearing masks.
I believe in showing our vulnerable sides and always showing how we really feel, especially when we’re hurting.
I believe in appreciation expressed through both words and actions. I believe in compliments and sweet words.
I believe in deep, meaningful, powerful, once-in-a-lifetime kind of connection. I believe in genuine, raw, pure, unconditional kind of love.
I believe in fully investing yourself in your relationship. I believe in putting great amounts of effort and time into your relationship. I believe in fighting for the other person and doing your best to overcome all the challenges and problems that appear in your relationship.
I believe in fully devoting yourself to your significant other.
I believe that when two people are destined to be together, they’ll find their way back. There isn’t an obstacle, or a problem, or pain, or another person who will be strong enough to prevent them from being together.
I believe in the way you feel when you look at your significant other and they feel like home.
I believe in celebrating with your partner when they achieve success and supporting, lifting them up and kissing them tenderly when they’re at their lowest.
I believe in fighting for and nurturing the kind of love that makes you a better person. That makes you improve yourself, overcome your insecurities, break your bad habits, and be kinder to and help other people.
I believe in showing your partner that you’re deeply, madly in love with them. That you truly care about them. I believe in letting them know that they’re the reason you find the world a better place.
I believe in loving like you really mean it.
