If you love me,

for what you see,

only your eyes would be

in love with me.

If you love me,

for what you’ve heard,

then you would love me

for my words.

If you love

my heart and mind

then you will love me,

for all that I am.

But if you don’t love

my every flaw,

then you mustn’t love me-

not at all.

Lang Leav

That’s the challenge, isn’t it?

Accepting someone wholeheartedly, loving him or her as a whole, not only his or her strengths, beauties and capabilities but also his or her weaknesses, flaws and incompetency.

I Love You. These three magical words are all you need initially. “I love you” is enough to fuel and propel the relationship forward. “I love you” is all you need to hear. “I love you” is the key to your happily ever after.

But the journey of love has never been easy and will never be because it is never meant to be easy in the first place. We fall out of love, we give up on love. When the going gets tough, we hurt others so deeply and eventually break their hearts so selfishly.

Because at the end of the day, “I love you” are just words. They are thrown out so carelessly, but they echo nothing. They are just empty promises.

To love someone wholeheartedly means actively making that choice. Love will work only when we are continuously choosing to love them regardless. “I love you” will never mean anything until we have chosen to love.
