What actually Love is

Why do we close our eyes when we sleep? When we cry?

When we imagine? When we kiss?

This is because the most beautiful things inthe world are unseen.
We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird
and when we find someone whose weirdnessis compatible with ours,
we join up with them and fall inmutual weirdness and call it love.
There are things that we never want to let go of,

people we never want to leave behind,

but keep in mind that letting go isn’t the end of the world,

it’s the beginning of a new life.
Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched and

those who have tried. For only they can appreciate the importance of the people who have touched their lives.
A great love? It’s when you shed tears and still

you care for him, it’s when he ignores you and still you long for him.

It’s when he begins to love another and yet you still smile and say I’m happy for you.
If love fails, set yourself free, let your heart spread its wings and fly again.

Remember you may find love and lose it,
but when love dies,

you never have to die with it.
The strongest people are not those who always win but those
who stand back up when they fall.
Somehow along the course of life,
you learn about yourself

and realize there should never be regrets,
only a life long appreciation of

the choices you’ve made.
A true friend understands when you say, I forgot,waits forever when you say,

just a minute, stays when you say leave me alone,

opens the door even before you knock and says can I come in?
Loving is not how you forget but how you forgive,

not how you listen but how you understand,

not what you see but how you feel, and not how you let go but how you hold on.
It’s more dangerous to weep inwardly rather than outwardly.

Outward tears can be wiped away while secret tears scar forever.
In love, very rarely do we winbut when love is true, even if you lose,

you still win just for having the tingle of loving someone more than you love yourself.
There comes a time when we have to stop loving someone

not because that person has stopped loving us but because we have found out

that they’d be happier if we let go.
It’s best to wait for the one you want than settle for one that’s available.

Best to wait for the one you love than one who is around.

Best to wait for the right one because life is too short to waste on just someone.
Sometimes the one you love turns out to be the one who hurts you the most,

and sometimes the friend who takes you into his arms and cries when you cry

turns out to be the love you never knew you wanted.
If you really love someone never let go,
don’t believe that letting go means that you love best,

instead fight for your love,that’s what true love is.
Laugh to your heart’s content; you cannot go through life without it.

I understand where you are coming from with this post. I had everyone from family to friends telling me to give up. It reminded me a smidgeon of what Job must have felt like as he was suffering thru trials. It would have been easier to give up where my marriage is concerned, but I'm glad I didn't. We're at a much better place now and I'm thankful to God that He helped us find a way to healing. I never let go, I fought to save it.
