Love Is…

A friend of mine posted this article on Facebook today. It is a very interesting read and personally quite timely, as I continue to learn and grow on the relationship journey with the man I love.

Growing up, I believed in a fairy tale love just like many of my female counterparts. In my 20s I believed it was about what a man could do for me. Now that I’m in my 30s, I am learning that “real” love is not any of those things. Of course it’s great if the person you are with treats you like a princess, but we shouldn’t expect such things. Love is about mutual respect, trust, communication, patience…amongst many other traits. Most importantly, it’s about not losing our individual selves while in the process of sharing our “selves” with another. Love should complement. Not complete.

Check out the article for some great insight into this thing called “Love.”
