Love. It’s a word we use so freely that it’s actual meaning can feel quite devoid. What is Love truly?
Is Love something that we can give to someone, only to ‘take back’ moments later when they’ve disappointed our expectations?
Is Love something we have to earn?
Is Love something we inherently are made of?
These are the questions I am here to unpack today.
In order to anchor this conversation down with something tangible, I will be referencing examples and experiences from my own partnership to illustrate this message.
When I say I love you, what do I really mean?
I will love you, as long as you love me?
I will love you, as long as you don’t hurt me?
I will love you, as long as you’re following our rules?
When I think of Love in such a disposable way, it feels cheap, fraud and devalued in my eyes. Does Love truly exist under such circumstantial preferences?
