Love is. . . .
Love is not sacrifice... it is understanding.
Love is not compromise of one's core desires... it is reciprocal encouragement of what *both* want and need.
Love is not fear of loss... it is acknowledgement that control of someone else is not yours.
Love is not telling half-truths... it is honor, trust, and respect... for them and for yourself.
Ultimately, love is about vulnerability... allowing someone to see that you want them in your life, and trusting them enough not to hurt you...♥♥..
