In my line of work, this stood out to me so profoundly the first time I saw it. What are the reasons you love each other? Is this someone you see yourself growing old with, someone who stimulates your mind and not just your body? The person you decide who to spend your life with should not be someone you enjoy being around, but rather someone you do not want to be without.

quotes about love about love dose not dominate

Talk about the true concept of love.

To have another who is so important to you, that you cannot be happy yourself if they are suffering in any way.

To want to take away their pain, and to be unable to ignore any amount of their suffering.

I think that each and every one of these are words to live by.

If we approached our relationships with these types of thoughts in our heads, and this type of love in our hearts, we would be in much better shape over all.

Great love is possible, and it should be valued.

Incredible relationships do exist, as long as we are open to them, and appreciative of them.
