60 Second Reading: How Deep Is Your Love?

A question that constantly crosses our minds and tickles our souls.. There is absolutely nobody who hasn’t thought of it!

Some might think love is those cheesy texts, those pictures together, or those likes and comments on social media platforms, just to reassure how happy couples are together!

Love is much deeper than we think. It goes beyond those moments of happiness and romance that could fade away by time, or those romantic movies and novels that we always fantasize about.

Sometimes you can’t explain what you see in the one you love. It’s just the way they take you to a place where no one else can.

To me, you know it is true love…

If you love them as much as you can love anything in this world;

If you stay next to them when they are too sad to show up to the world and when you stay there when they couldn’t be the nice person you first met.

If you forgive them when they make mistakes because probably you’d understand why they did it.

If you listen to their stories over and over again as if it’s the first time.

If you stay silent when they don’t want anyone around (but believe me they’ll be grateful you didn’t leave);

If you love them as if you love yourself. (No matter how many times you hate yourself sometimes, you just love it back.)

If you can’t imagine your life without being there next to them and if you are willing to risk anything just to be with them forever;

Love also changes us..

It’s when you find yourself the complete opposite.

It’s when you find a person within the person you are; An insane one instead of the wise rational one.. An adventurous one instead of that calm lazy one.

Love is when you find yourself listening to romantic songs you made fun of before. It’s you taking care of details you never thought of.

It makes your world upside down… in an oddly beautiful way.

If you’ve experienced any of the above, then–and only then–you know very well that you’re truly madly deeply in love…
