This is what I think of love from all that I’ve learned from my relationships with family, friends and romantic relationships:
conditional because you need to love yourself enough to be capable of loving someone else.
conditional because you need to have enough self worth to accept love.
conditional because it’s a cycle, you bounce things off of each other.
constantly choosing to fight for it.
not justifiying your defense mechanisms.
adding quality to life.
getting out of your comfort zone.
not a thing to tick off your bucket list.
not a remedy to loneliness because you may love and be loved but still feel lonely at times.
Love not worth it – you dont have to do it- but you can.
