what is love?

WHEN YOU THINK OF YOUR PAST LOVE, YOU MAY VIEW IT AS A FAILURE. BUT WHEN YOU FIND A NEW LOVE, YOU VIEW THE PAST AS A TEACHER. IN THE GAME OF LOVE, IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER WHO WON OR LOST. WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS YOU KNOW WHEN TO HOLD ON AND WHEN TO LET GO! YOU KNOW YOU REALLY LOVE SOMEONE WHEN YOU WANT HIM OR HER TO BE HAPPY, EVEN IF HIS OR HER HAPPINESS MEANS THAT YOU'RE NOT PART OF IT. EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR THE BEST. IF THE PERSON YOU LOVE DOESN'T LOVE YOU BACK, DON'T BE AFRAID TO LOVE SOMEONE ELSE AGAIN, FOR YOU'LL NEVER KNOW UNLESS YOU GIVE IT A TRY. YOU'LL NEVER LOVE A PERSON YOU LOVE UNLESS YOU RISK FOR LOVE. LOVE STRIVES IN HURTING. IF YOU DON'T GET HURT, YOU DON'T LEARN HOW TO LOVE. LOVE DOESN'T HURT ALL THE TIME. THOUGHT THE HURTING IS STILL THERE TO TEST YOU, TO HELP YOU GROW. DON'T FIND LOVE, LET LOVE FIND YOU. THAT'S WHY IT'S CALLED FALLING IN LOVE BECAUSE YOU DON'T FORCE YOURSELF TO FALL. YOU JUST FALL. YOU CANNOT FINISH A BOOK WITHOUT CLOSING ITS CHAPTERS. IF YOU WANT TO GO ON, THEN YOU HAVE TO LEAVE THE PAST AS YOU TURN THE PAGES. LOVE IS NOT DESTROYED BY A SINGLE FAILURE OR WON BY A SINGLE CARES. IT IS A LIFETIME VENTURE IN WHICH WE ARE ALWAYS LEARNING, DISCOVERING, AND GROWING. THE GREATEST IRONY OF LOVE IS LETTING GO WHEN YOU HAVE TO HOLD ON AND HOLDING ON WHEN YOU NEED TO LET GO. WE LOSE SOMEONE WE LOVE ONLY WHEN WE ARE DESTINED TO FIND SOMEONE ELSE WHO CAN LOVE US EVEN MORE THAN WE CAN LOVE OURSELVES. ON FALLING OUT OF LOVE, TAKE SOME TIME TO HEAL AND THEN GET BACK ON THE HORSE. BUT DON'T EVER MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE OF RIDING THE SAME ONE THAT THREW YOU THE FIRST TIME. TO LOVE IS TO RISK REJECTIONS, TO LIVE IS TO RISK DYING, TO HOPE IS TO RISK FAILURE. BUT RISK MUST BE TAKEN BECAUSE THE GREATEST HAZARD IN LIFE IS TO RISK NOTHING! TO LOVE IS TO RISK NOT TO BE LOVED IN RETURN. HOW TO DEFINE LOVE: FALL BUT DO NOT STUMBLE, BE CONSTANT BUT NOT TO PERSISTENT, SHARE AND NEVER BE UNFAIR, UNDERSTAND AND TRY NOT TO DEMAND, HURT BUT NEVER KEEP THE PAIN, LOVE IS LIKE A KNIFE. IT CAN STAB THE HEART OR IT CAN CARVE WONDERFUL IMAGES INTO THE SOUL THAT ALWAYS LAST FOR A LIFETIME. LOVE IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE MOST WONDERFUL FEELING. IT SHOULD INSPIRE YOU AND GIVE YOU JOY AND STRENGTH. BUT SOMETIMES THE THINGS THAT GIVE YOU JOY CAN ALSO HURT YOU IN THE END. LOVING PEOPLE MEANS GIVING THEM THE FREEDOM WHO THEY CHOOSE TO BE AND WHERE THEY CHOOSE TO BE. FOR ALL THE HEARTACHES AND THE TEARS, FOR GLOOMY DAYS AND FRUITLESS YEARS, YOU SHOULD GIVE THANKS, FOR YOU KNOW, THAT THEY WERE THE THINGS THAT HELPED YOU GROW. LOVING SOMEONE MEANS GIVING HIM OR HER THE FREEDOM TO FIND HIS OR HER WAY, WHETHER IT LEADS TOWARDS YOU OR AWAY FROM YOU. LOVE IS A PAINFUL RISK TO TAKE BUT THE RISK MUST BE TAKEN NO MATTER HOW SCARY OF PAINFUL, FOR ONLY THEN WILL YOU EXPERIENCE THE FULLNESS OF HUMANITY AND THAT IS LOVE. ONLY LOVE CAN MAKE YOU CRY AND ONLY LOVE KNOWS WHY. IF YOU'RE NOT READY TO CRY, IF YOU'RE NOT READY TO TAKE THE RISK, IF YOU'RE NOT READY TO FEEL THE PAIN, THEN YOU'RE NOT READY TO FALL IN LOVE. THERE WAS A TIME IN OUR LIVES WHEN WE BECAME AFRAID TO FALL IN LOVE BECAUSE EVERY TIME WE DO, WE GET HURT. THEN I FIGURED THAT'S WHY IT'S CALLED FALLING IN LOVE. WHEN YOU DECIDE TO LOVE, ALLOW IT TO GROW. WHEN YOU PROMISE TO LOVE, REFUSE TO LET IT DIE!

~IN LOVE, NEVER PUT YOURSELF ON A SITUATION WHERE YOU'RE NOT SURE WHERE YOU STAND IN HIS OR HER LIFE, NEVER ASSUME, NEVER EXPECT, SO THAT IF HE OR SHE CHOOSES TO DROP YOU. YOU'LL HAVE ENOUGH STRENGTH TO MOVE ON.~

    to me real love is when you can find someone who can accept you for you. that person gots to love you know matter how you look, what size shoes you where, how you wear your hair and everything else about you. ya'll got to be like two peas in a pot. it's hard finding real love but you can find real love if you just pay attention.
