When you love someone you vow to protect their mind and heart as they look after you in the form of respecting you when you’re in front of them or away from their every day life.
Love makes this feel as passive as breathing; it’s just something you do.
Respecting and protecting them doesn’t mean that life will go smoothly with them, it means that you will be the harbor for their heart and mind to anchor to when they cannot make it on their own.
It’s offering your hand to them even when they don’t need it because you’re offering your hand so they can feel the warmth of your love during turbulent weather we call life.
Wednesday is Valentine’s Day and every cynical human will call it a “Hallmark holiday” but don’t let them rain on your love parade. Accept the love drenched day as an excuse to tell someone, anyone really, that you love them and that you love them for “doing life” with you.
This is something we forget to do often so thanks, Hallmark!
