My Definition of True Love
True Love consists of three concepts: Unconditional acceptance, Caring, and Authenticity.
Unconditional acceptance is being able to understand and tolerate the qualities of the person you love, no matter what it is. This doesn’t mean that you must accept everything that person does especially if it’s inappropriate and rude. What it does mean is to forgive them and try to work past these problems and if that’s not possible, distance yourself and show them some tough love. Just make sure they understand why you went on a hiatus. Unconditional acceptance is the reason it’s possible to truly love anybody.
The second condition, caring is the ability to nurture the one you love. As long as you nurture your loved one with enriching conversation, affection (not necessarily physical), compliments, gifts, and great experience and memories, you are expressing true love toward them, especially if you don’t wait till holidays, birthdays, or special occasions to show you care.
The final condition is authenticity. This means no matter what you do with and around your loved one, make sure you truly mean it. If you aren’t honest in your interactions with the people you love, how can your love be considered true?
Don’t narrow love down to something thats only a part of romance. Love is meant to be shared with everyone. :D
