What Love is according to Susan Polis Schutz
Love is… Being honest with yourself at all times, Being honest with the other person at all times, Telling, listening, respecting the truth, And never pretending. LOVE IS THE SOURCE OF REALITY.
Love is… An understanding so complete that you feel as if you are a part of the other person, Accepting the other person just the way they are, And not trying to change them to be something else. LOVE IS THE SOURCE OF UNITY.
Love is… The freedom to pursue your own desires while sharing your experiences with the other person, The growth of one individual alongside of and together with the growth of another individual. LOVE IS THE SOURCE OF SUCCESS.
Love is… The excitement of planning things together, The excitement of doing things together. LOVE IS THE SOURCE OF THE FUTURE.
Love is… The fury of the storm, The calm in the rainbow. LOVE IS THE SOURCE OF PASSION.
Love is… Giving and taking in a daily situation, Being patient with each other’s needs and desires. LOVE IS THE SOURCE OF SHARING.
Love is… Knowing that the other person will always be with you regardless of what happens, Missing the other person when they are away but remaining near in heart at all times. LOVE IS THE SOURCE OF SECURITY.
LOVE IS… THE SOURCE OF LIFE.”
