We fall in love without truly understanding the important part of love. Without being conscious of the fact that we now hold someone’s heart in our hands. Without knowing fully well how our actions can affect the other person, because falling in love is the easiest part.
We fall in love, enjoy the euphoric feeling and forget that we now have a responsibility to someone else. A responsibility to love, care, be there for and be loyal.
Falling in love is the easiest part, staying in love is really not that easy, in between these two is the important part we often forget- guarding the heart of the one we love, the heart that was so trustingly placed in our hands.
Many times we think we are making the best decision where they are concerned, when in reality, we are just being selfish and doing what benefits us instead. We become oblivious to the effects of our actions, telling a not-so-white lie here and giving half truths there or not being there when they need us the most.
What is the point of this post you ask? It’s to remind you to be mindful of the most important part of love, to guard the heart of the one you love. As much as you can, try to be true, be loyal, be honest. It is a true gift to love and be loved, you should never take that for granted, especially if what you have is the real deal.
