What is Love?

By Susan Polis Schutz

Love, Love is the strongest feeling known, an all-encompassing passion, an extreme strength, an overwhelming excitement.

Love is trying not to hurt the other person, trying not to change the other person, trying not to dominate the other person, trying not to deceive the other person.

Love is understanding each other, listening to each other, supporting each other, having fun with each other.

Love is not an excuse to stop growing, not an excuse to stop making yourself better, not an excuse to lessen one's goals, not an excuse to take the other person for granted.

Love is being completely honest with each other, finding dreams to share, working towards common goals, sharing responsibilities equally.

Everyone in the world wants to love. Love is not a feeling to be taken lightly. Love is a feeling to be cherished, nurtured and cared for. Love is the reason for life.
