How do you know if you really love someone? Or if someone really loves you?
Love is someone’s best kept secret and the best tool you could ever use is the belief and instinct that if it’s love you have then you just have to grab hold of it, you don’t have to label it if it’s real or not, you have to actually feel it without seeing it. But for me… It’s when you wake up and they are the first thing that comes into your mind and you search for your phone looking to check if they’ve texted or called you while you we’re asleep. And when you go to bed, you fall asleep thinking about them, with their voice or their laugh playing at the back of your mind. When you miss them, even though it hasn’t been a couple of hours since you’ve talked to them. But most importantly, when you put their needs before your own. When their happiness is more important than your pain. When you feel frustrated when they don’t feel ok and you just want them to know you’re with them, like giving them a hug or a kiss or just telling them that things will get better. When you wanted them t know that you’ll always be there during their ugly days. When you really love someone you’re willing to give it your all, and when you feel all those emotions for someone. When you look past their mistakes. When you give so much effort and commitment for someone despite the distance, age, even to look beyond the physical things and their overall flaws as a human being, then that’s when you’ll know.
