Ctrl +A, Delete

Yea, I just did that...to an entire blog I wrote on love, the definitions of love, the difference between usages of the word love, and a couple things I love to love.

But I deleted it all. Tonight, love is just a confusing subject to me.

When you love someone, don't you want the best for them? Don't you genuinely care about their well being? Shouldn't you feel the same way about that person no matter how far away they are or how long they will be gone? In my opinion, the answer to all the questions above should be yes. Apparently though, not everyone feels the same way.

Since I am having horrible writers block I am just going to bullet point what's on my mind.
  • A mother that loves her child should want what's best for the child even if it isn't necessarily what makes the mother happy. You're main priority should be what makes your child happy and what is in his or hers best interest. It's called being selfless. Love is selfless.
  • I love my husband and he loves me. If it were any other way, chances are high we would not be married. He knows me better than probably most of my friends do and he has known be for a very long time. If he had a problem with the way I am, yet again, we would probably not be married right now. So if he doesn't have a problem with the way I act then neither should anyone else. Who are you to judge? He trusts me. Love is trusting. 
  • Not everyone is perfect, we're human. When we love someone we choose to accept that person for who they are. That includes the good, the bad, and the ugly. Deployments are a prime example of this. Unless you have been deployed, you have no idea the things they go through out there. It is inevitable that they will come back different in one way or another. Everyone has some sort of baggage. Whether you choose to accept that is up to you. If you truly love someone you should love their faults, their imperfections, and everything that goes along with them. Love is unconditional. 
Now think about this: What do you love? Or better yet, who do you love? Are you showing them the type of love you would want to be showed? Are you being fair to them? If you answered no to either of the last 2 questions I have one more for you. Do you really LOVE them?
