Mean it all.

“Love” is a beautiful word, and we have to restore its meaning.

We have to make the effort to heal words by using them properly and carefully.

True love includes a sense of responsibility and accepting the other person as they are, with all their strengths and weaknesses.

If you only like the best things in a person, that is not love.

Accept their weaknesses and bring your patience, understanding, and energy to help them transform.

    Loved this definition of love, so thought I’d give it a reblog.

    If you haven’t already done so, I hope you all find your true love someday – someone who will love you just the way you are. 🙂

  2. Interesting poem. I believe strongly in the power of words. One word that stands out as less than positive is the word “responsibility.” That word invoked when I was a caregiver added a lot of pressure for me. It gave me the responsibility for the outcome, and for many things I had little control of that with health issues. I prefer the replacement word of “care.” Caring and responsibility carry different meanings for me and when I care, it’s much more loving.
    I know you didn’t write this, but thought I’d share my thoughts. 🙂

      I guess a lot of people do feel burdened by a sense of responsibility and that word might seem scary…
      Thank you for sharing your thoughts 🙂 It’s interesting to look at it this way 🙂
