Day 5: Your definition of Love

Sorry for the short break between the 30 Day's post. This particular post has really made me think and it wasn't something that I wanted to rush through.

Day 5 of 30 Day's: You Definition of Love
Wow, this is a hard one for me.
Love to me is: putting someone else above yourself at all times, its thinking about the person constantly, and being willing to give up anything and everything for them.

I would like to say that's how I love but it would be a lie. I am quite possibly the most selfish person in the world. I know that I have not loved my husband or anyone else in my life like I should. I believe that I show love when I'm nice to someone or go out of my way to make sure that they are okay. But thats not love. Anyone can be nice to someone. I'm nice to the guy that bags my groceries or the waitress that keeps my Diet Coke glass filled. That doesn't mean that I love them though. I have always had a problem with being nicer to the people that don't mean anything to me then I am to the people that I love with all my heart. It seems that if I have an issue or a problem then I will take it out on the ones that are closet to me. I try not to but I guess that old habits are hard to break.

So from this day forward I vow to love with all my heart. I vow to treat the ones that I love the most with respect and kindness that they deserve. The same respect and kindness that they have shown me.

I love this man!

He is the most amazing person that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

That is very sweet and true. I think it is human nature to take out your frusterations on the ones you love most because inside you know that they are there for you, good or bad. xo

I love your honesty. Your post made me think about how I treat those I love as well (We are very much alike. Are you type "A?").

Thank you.

Have a great day.
