Love is what you've been through with somebody
Most people tend to think about love in a romantic sense. They associate it with how you get butterflies in your stomach when you're with that special someone, or how they frequently fill you with warm and fuzzies. There's an aspect of love, though, that doesn't get as much praise as its candy-coated counterpart, which is kind of sad because it's just as important.
It's not difficult to be all-in when things are going smoothly. It's the times when things aren't going the way that's expected when you show the fortitude to overcome hurdles placed before a relationship. Knowing that no matter what is happening in your world right at this moment isn't anything that you can't get past together, as a unit. To me, that's love.
This Valentine's Day I will gratefully appreciate all that love entails, the good, the bad, and the ugly <3
What will you be celebrating about love on this day?
