I want to give you the 411 on real love, whether it be friendly, familial, or romantic:
Love does NOT toss you away like a used Kleenex or a Dixie cup. EVER.
Love is steadfast, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year.
Love has integrity and will NEVER make you beg or make lame arse excuses for why it failed to attend. But if it is real and your life depends on it, it will get down on its hands and knees, even crawl across hot asphalt strewn with broken glass on the hottest day of summer, and beg for you (figuratively, of course).
Love is as dependable as sunrise — even when you’ve really pissed it off.
Love doesn’t make us fight for it — love fights for us.
Believe these words like your heart and the quality of your life depend on it, because… because… they do.
Call to action: In the comments, please share with us an instance when love fought for you or you for it. Then, go out into the world and look for opportunities to fight for someone you love.
