Day 9 - Your definition of love
This is like defining the un-definable. There are many definitions to love. I would typically say my definition of love is not judging and very caring and someone who will be there to hold your hand through the tough times.
But today, after going through what I have gone through, I would definitely have to define love as the unspeakable. Speaking only through your eyes and your heart and knowing what it is the other person is feeling or saying without truly even saying it. As you get older and mature, love may not be easy to come across because you are no longer in that crush or lust phase. You have been there and know the difference and you do not stand to play games or get walked all over. Love happens in many forms and many places and many languages but TRUE LOVE that is a language and a world of it's very own. It is not necessarily something you expect or appear as you want it but it is there.
True love is unconditional. It has zero expectations. True love isn't how you feel about someone but how you feel when you are with that person. It is that smile that comes across your face as you just think of the person or read something from them or just receive a phone call. True love is falling asleep with the spiritual feeling of their arms wrapped around you. It is the empathetic bond or connection you have with someone even when you are not together. True love can also come in the form of feeling pain. Pain because your heart is aching when you are not with them. The pain of having to say good bye until you see them again. The pain as you are pulling away after a kiss or a hug. The pain as the tears roll down your cheeks because all you want is to be with that person. True love is also beautiful inside and out. When you see an older couple walking down the sidewalk still holding hands and laughing. When you see an expecting mother and the daddy to be is rubbing and kissing the belly.
True love is when you cannot imagine spending the rest of your life without them.
