Loving someone is a privilege.
It’s a rare occurrence when someone trusts you with their heart and gives you the power to either bless or break it. But everyone loves differently, and needs to be loved differently. And because love is selfless, it’s important to love them the way they need to be loved.
While your significant other may need words of affirmation, but you are more of a physical touch sort of person, learn to love them through words that they need to hear. Or if you feel loved through acts of service, but your partner feels love most through gifts, then they need to learn how to help you with projects and not expect you to feel love from them through buying you gifts that they would like.
Relationships take time and effort. You should never change who you are for someone else, unless it’s in a healthy way. And learning how to live and love to make your partner happy and feel loved can be a rough road sometimes.
Relationships aren’t easy. It’s about two imperfect people choosing each other above anyone else they know or will meet and continuing to choose that person through the good, the bad and the ugly.
Learn about your significant other.
Learn how to love them because afterall, they’re giving you that special honor to care for them and their heart.
They don’t need you to survive this life.
They’re choosing to let you be a part of it. Don’t take that for granted.
And don’t let them regret their choice.
