oh that thing called love
i have to say, i love living life with this guy and i love him more everyday. the other day i found an article circulating an article circulating around the internet called "i didn't love my wife when i married her", have you read it? it basically talked about how when you first are in a relationship you think that you love someone, based on the way you "feel" but true love doesn't come for several more years. when that feeling may or may not be there, but your love then is a choice. i read this and thought about how true it is. love is such a complex thing. i think that society puts these notions in our head that love is a feeling, that it fades, and when it fades it s a bad thing. but it is so much more then that. my favorite line from the article simple states it perfectly, "love isn’t an emotion or even a noun. it’s a verb. better defined as giving. as putting someone else’s needs above your own"i can't say i am an expert but in the six years chad and i have been together, i have learned so much about love and what it entitles. the more you love, the more selfless you become. it is a humbling thing. i think that this article addresses several things that are not talked about everyday, but that are critical thing for relationships to be successful. and truly, i am so exited to see how our relationship and love grows in the next several years.
have you read the article? what did you think?
