I like the Thought Catalog. Who can’t, really? So many different views and ideas and so many things to read, and mull over. Always a welcome respite from dwelling within my own ADHD mind and surrounded by the same ole thought processes and patterns.
My personal definition of real love sure doesn’t include any of the fairy tales we all heard when we were younger. Far from it. In a lot of ways though, that’s a good thing. Who wants to kiss frogs and risk warts (among other less savory things) and battle dragons, witches, and the likely possibility of ending up as dinner? My life already has all of those elements.
I found this article a while back and have been waiting for the right time to add my contribution. This weekend presented me with exactly what I had been seeking. Here are my examples of what real love is.
Real love is:
My guy deciding to build new rooms in our house since we aren’t able to move to a bigger one-yet.
Real love is…
Trying to make what you have-better; when money is short and no one else can help
***I’m banned from all electrical equipment***
But most of all…Real love is…
Really loud right at the moment, but it’s not just saying words
Showering someone with gifts that require no effort or thought
It’s not all about money either.
Not even if they really really really want a Mustang GT500
“I love you too babe”
Real love is…QUIET (sometimes)
It’s doing what needs to be done
Not expecting anything in return
and enjoying someone else’s enjoyment
