Love

What love isn’t

  • Easy
  • A feeling
  • Getting your way all the time
  • Endless supply of money
  • Selfishness
  • Stagnant
  • Lusting after another
  • Emotional attention given /received from someone other than partner
  • Munipulation
  • Apathetic
  • Withholding
  • Emotionally unattached
  • Lack of willingness to understand
  • Choose not to communicate effectively
  • Found at the bottom of a bottle
  • Doing what you want over what you need to do
  • Comfortable lying
  • Incapable of working through conflict
  • Seeking attention
  • Unaccountable of self
  • Insecure
  • Envious
  • Unforgiving
  • Unmerciful
  • Lacks grace
  • Jealous
  • Untrustworthy
    Replaceable
  • I thought I knew what love was, but I didn’t. I didn’t love myself ; therefore, I couldn’t have loved anyone else. I do know, though, that I’m seeking it now. I’m seeking it deep within myself and the best version of it with another. Years and years of a marriage, two individuals had surely learned along the way. I want that.

    2. Loving isn’t “doing what you want over what you need to do.” That is so true. It means you cannot be selfish. Love is complicated but commitment is necessary for that long life together. There has been much more good than bad in my long marriage (sixty-five years) but there were plenty of bad during which parting was a temptation. Hope you find long love; it is satisfying when the embers glow. 😀
