“Unless it’s mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it’s a waste of your time. There are too many mediocre things in life. Love shouldn’t be one of them” – Dreams For An Insomniac
Because a life without love, even love lost, really isn’t a life at all! I’m not talking about the love from your family, your friends, your neighbors, or your mentors etc those are vital, necessary and amazing types of love. But I’m talking about that real love, that, “ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t live without each other love” – as my fictional spirit animal, Carrie Bradshaw would say. And as if he’s reading this, I’m sure my boyfriend has just rolled his eyes at me for not only quoting Carrie Bradshaw, but for also citing her as my fictional spirit animal (it is what it is babe!). Its with him I have been so lucky to have found a love just like that. It’s a love that just manifested, under the craziest, most testing circumstances, that we’ve grown into. Despite the challenges he’s faced and that we’ve faced together, I’m constantly in awe of the bond we share each and every day. Love, through the form of my boyfriend, has made me a better, kinder, caring, happier person. You know its a good love when you look at your relationship and see that it hasn’t compromised either of your personalities, values, beliefs, goals… and even better if it has made improvements in your own personality. I’m thankful for this love that never dies. I feel the same way about him from when we go to bed at night, and wake up in the morning; whether we’ve gone two weeks without speaking, or even just two minutes. I’m thankful for this love that completes me, makes me stronger, helps me grow, and teaches me new things about myself everyday. I love you, and I mean it.
