When you are truly in love with someone, you rearrange your priorities for them. No questions asked.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that everything else in your life is no longer important. It also doesn’t mean that you should ditch your friends whenever they call you.
It doesn’t mean you should get distracted during your work hours just because they send you a sweet text and so you can’t pay attention to anything else other than them. And it surely doesn’t mean that you should give up on your hopes and dreams to fit them into your life.
Rearranging your priorities and making time for your loved one means spending more quality time with them. It means caring about their feelings and happiness as much as you care about your own.
Because when you really love someone, you cannot be so spontaneous that you go on and make plans without even thinking about them. You cannot be so selfish to make reckless decisions that you know will impact them as well.
You have to stop for a moment and think whether accepting your coworker’s idea to grab few drinks and come home late is a good idea taking into consideration the fact that your partner will be home worrying about you and also ruining the dinner that they prepared for you.
When you love someone, putting them on the top of your priority list is something that naturally comes to you. You don’t force it. But that doesn’t mean that they will be your priority every single day.
Of course, there’ll be days when you can’t call them because you are on an important meeting. There’ll be weekends when you go out with your friends, and they go out with their friends.
Making someone a priority doesn’t mean that they suddenly become the center of your world and everything else ceases to matter. No. It means that you love them enough to want to make time for them and fit them into your busy schedule because you can’t be without them for so long.
Because when you love someone you are there for them. You call. You text. You make plans. You show on time. You remember things that matter. You have honest conversations. You are vulnerable. You don’t feel as they are wasting your time and energy. On the contrary, you are very happy and pleased to be with them.
When you truly love someone, you can’t spend too much time away from them. You just can’t.
