Love is not just a feeling. It is a decision; a decision to stay with that one person in the face of blessings and adversities. Love involves action; actions that prove your expressions of love in words to be true. When you truly love someone, you don’t turn your back on them. Instead, you keep trying.

What You Do When You Truly Love Someone

When you truly love someone, you make them feel wanted and worthy of your love. You dare not break their heart by giving up on them especially when they haven’t given up on you. You stay and fight for the love you share for as long as possible.

When you truly love someone, you make a promise to stay and keep to it. If anything or anyone stands between you two, you fight to conquer. You love fiercely when you truly love someone. You show how much that person means to you by staying even when everyone expects you to give up and leave.

When you care for someone and make a promise to stay, it’s a choice to be there for better and for worse. You love every experience, both beautiful and ugly. You learn to accept the imperfections of your partner. When he or she makes a mistake, you realize that it’s only human for such things to happen. Even if it hurts, you make the decision to forgive and keep trying.

When you love someone, you make your feelings known. You don’t leave him or her wondering. You tell what and show how you feel. When you make that decision to love, you don’t stop showing tender affections.

What You Don’t Do When You Truly Love Someone

Truly loving someone involves reminding them from time to time how you feel about them. Don’t keep mute about it. You can spice things up by saying the same thing in different ways. Day after day, remind them of how happy you are that they are in your life. Let him know that he completes you and how much meaning he brings into your life.

Relationships have bumps along the way, bumps that can be stopped if you let them. A bump is meant to be a speed breaker. In your relationship, don’t stop at the first bump or obstacle you meet on the road. Instead, use it as an opportunity to reevaluate; to see where you both need to improve and how far you’ve come. Care enough to save those you care about from such storms. Choose to see such situations as a test of your love and prove what you feel.

When you care for someone you keep trying. You do so by paying attention to what they say and how they feel. You also try to be the best version of yourself.

Don’t belittle your partner. Try to help her overcome her insecurities, anything that makes her question your loyalty or commitment.

You don’t make walking away from your first choice. In place of that, you do your utmost to work things out.

As long as your partner matters to you and you care about him or her, never stop trying. Do not give up on loving them.

So, keep the fire burning and never give up on fighting for who really matters to you.

There are a thousand and one things you might decide to give up on. Giving up on the love that is worthy of being in your life shouldn’t be one.
