Loving someone genuinely means not being afraid that they might break your heart one day. It means loving them fearlessly. Openly. Proudly.
Because when you’re truly in love with someone, you love them with every fiber of your being. You completely surrender yourself to them. You create a strong emotional bond with them. You connect with them on a deep emotional and spiritual level. You become one with them.
When you’re genuinely in love with someone, you allow yourself to be embraced by your powerful, and yet, comforting feelings. You let your love for them flow freely through your veins. You let your feelings for them make your heart beat like crazy.
When you truly love someone, you do everything in your power to maintain the relationship. You’re not afraid to sacrifice your own needs and desires for your partner’s happiness. You’re not afraid to walk through fire to protect them from every evil in the world and make them feel safe. You’re not afraid to make compromises for the sake of the relationship.
When you’re honestly and deeply in love with someone, you don’t feel ashamed or afraid to show them your vulnerabilities. You are not afraid to undress your soul in front of them. You are not afraid to say how you feel out loud and expose your true self. You let them see your deepest insecurities and fears. You let them see your weaknesses.
When you genuinely love someone and they love you the same way, you don’t feel the pressure to put their needs and desires before your own. You don’t feel the pressure to prioritize their happiness over your own. Because both of you understand that your needs, feelings, and desires are equally important.
When you truly love someone and you know they truly love you as well, you’re not afraid to ask for what you want. You’re not afraid to ask for their advice, help, support, or whatever you might need because you know they’ll give it to you without expecting anything in return.
When you truly love someone, you don’t fear that they’ll give up on you and walk away at the first sign of trouble. You don’t fear that arguments will cause your relationship to fall apart.
When you’re in a relationship with someone who loves you honestly and unconditionally, you don’t torture yourself with thoughts that you need to change so as to meet their expectations and make yourself more likable.
You don’t feel the pressure to pretend to be someone you are not. Because they accept you and cherish you exactly the way you are.
When you love someone selflessly and unconditionally and when they love you the same way, you feel a mountainous wave of contentment and peace. You feel emotionally fulfilled. You feel alive. You feel strong.
You feel fearless. You don’t fear that they might break your heart one day. You don’t fear they might hurt you.
The only thing you’re afraid of is losing them.
