Love

Love is the strongest and most fulfilling emotion possible. It lets you share your goals, desires, your experiences. It lets you share your life with someone. It lets you be yourself, with someone who will always support you. It lets you speak your innermost feelings to someone who understands you. It lets you feel tenderness and warmth-- a wholeness that avoids loneliness. Love lets you feel complete.
But in order to have a successful love relationship, you must make a strong commitment to each other and you must do and feel everything within your mind and body to make this commitment work.
You must be happy with yourself and you must understand yourself before you can expect someone else to be happy with you or to understand you . You must be honest about yourself and each other at all times and not hold any feelings back. You must accept each other the way you are and not try to change each other.
You must be free to grow as individuals, yet share your life as one. You must follow your own principals and morals and not follow what society roles tell you to do.
You must follow the philosophy that men and women are equal and not treat either person with inferiority in any way. You must be together always in your heart but not neccessarily always in your activities. You must be proud of each other and love and not be ashamed to show your sensitive feelings.
You must treat every day spent with each other as special and not take each other or your love for granted. You must spend time talking with each other every day and not be too busy with outside events that you are too tired for each other.
You must understand each other's moods and feelings and not hurt each other intentionally. But if your frustrations are taken out on each other, you must both realize that it is not a personal attack.
You must be passionate with each other often and not get into boring patterns. You must continue to have fun and excitement with each other and not be afraid to try new things. You must always work at love and your love relationship and not forget how important this relationship is or what you would feel without it.
Love is the strongest and most fulfilling emotion possible. You will be living your dreams between awakenings, if you culminate your commitment to love with marriage.
