When you genuinely love another human being, you don’t try to change them into your idea of a perfect person. You accept them for who they truly are, flaws and all. You welcome them into your imperfect life, you embrace their scarred, flawed soul, you help them with their heavy emotional suitcases, you fall in love with their cracked heart and you love them with all of your being.
You love them for being brave to show their differences in a world that demand us to be the same. You love them for not being afraid to open their heart to you in a cruel, cruel world who does not care about anyone’s feelings.
You do everything for them because they are the remaining puzzle that perfectly fits your heart.

And you help them realize that they are stronger than they imagine.
When you genuinely love another human being, you never throw their flaws in their face. You don’t make them feel worse about the things that already burden their heart. You don’t blame them for the troubles in their life. You do your best to help them get out of that vicious cycle of self-hate. You let them know that they can be themselves around you. You listen to their stories. You wipe their tears. And you stay by their side forever.
