Love should have a sweet, sugary flavor. Not a bitter, rotten taste.
It should make your life beautiful. It should help you experience things you’ve never felt before. Reach heights you never knew even existed. Fall into a divine sensation of ecstasy.
Love should bring out the best of you, help you grow. It should motivate you to open up and start seeing the world through your heart’s lenses.
But, love also requires effort. It requires a lot of sacrifices.
Good relationships don’t just happen overnight.
When you love someone, you fight with all of your being to protect what you have. You put up with things that you personally don’t find enjoying. You accept compromises for the sake of the relationship. You embrace changes because it is the only way to go forward.
You don’t just leave whenever you experience a bit of drama. You can’t pretend to love someone, and then run for the hills whenever you have a little fight. It doesn’t work like that.
You are either there, through thick and thin, holding hands and fearlessly walking through the hailstorm, or you don’t get attached at all.
