What love does (and doesn't) look like

Thursday, December 5, 2013
Why do people who love you always lie to you and think it’s okay?
Why do people who love you try to change you?
"Why do people who love you prevent you from doing what you love?
These are just a few of the questions I see pop up on my newsfeed every once in awhile, all with the same answer:
They don’t.
People who truly love you, do not do these, or other negative things to you. People who really love you will not betray your trust. They will not lie to you, especially repeatedly. Love is a product of honesty, trust, and mutual respect – without those things you cannot have real love.
This may be infatuation masquerading as love. This may be someone who is trying to control you by making you think that they love you. This may be someone you are attached to who you are trying to defend. But, this is not someone who loves you.
I believe one of the most important things that we can teach our future (and current) generations, is what love truly looks like. People who constantly hurt you and lie to you do not truly love you and we absolutely cannot allow decent human beings to continue remaining in relationships like this, while believing it is normal or right.
It’s not."
