Real love doesn’t necessarily knock you off your feet. It doesn’t fix you or your life. Real love is something that can be felt in the depths of your soul and seen in the smallest actions between two people. Real love is the love between two people, that makes both people better, but not in the way that it is making them whole. Real love starts with complimenting the soul, complimenting the real person. it comes when you’re at peace with yourself, when you know what you want, what you like, and how what steps you feel you need to take you there. At the very least, you need to be in touch with yourself, and know how to take care of yourself, because that is when you can let someone else in.
There has to be a compatibility and a sense of excitement, but this will change over time. It’s the syncing up of two people in this respect that equates to great love, and when it isn’t working, the great loves can talk about it and know how to fix it. Real love is the feeling of knowing that your person is with you, even if they’re physically not. It’s the trust, the admiration, the respect that you have for your person, and you know you have from them. It’s the smiles you get from just thinking about them, and it’s the constant of these feelings. Most relationships start with these feelings, at least at some point, but real love realizes that there are days when you don’t have the same feelings on the surface, but deep down, you know it’s there. <3
