You never really know how much love you have until you need it.
What I mean by that is you may believe you love someone more than life itself only to find out otherwise when you are actually put in a situation forcing you to make the choice. Likewise, you may be undecided about someone only to discover when the time comes that you do take those risks. I have been on both sides of this and it surprised me both times. Love is meaningless without action. Without work, love – like faith – is dead.
The older I get, the more I learn about what true love is and how it differs from selfishness. Many times I thought I had it finally figured out only to learn my love was still not quite perfect. Don’t worry about how much it is that you love someone. Simply love them the best you know how at this moment.
