Love cannot be forced, but it is a force. It makes you do what is best for someone and makes them happiest, even if it hurts you or your pride, because love has no pride; true love is selfless.
Love makes you listen, even when you do not understand, so that you can understand.
True love makes you put yourself aside, knowing you would put your life aside for the one you love if needed.
True love feels the pain of the one you love, just as if it were your own.
And there is no other feeling in the world as exhilarating as knowing your love is returned and mutual…
And no pain more unbearable than having to lose each other.
