Is it irrational to need to feel loved? To need to be the center of someone’s thoughts every now and then? To have someone want to talk to you? To want to console you? To want to hold you and kiss you? Is it wrong or irrational to want to have someone think about you during the day enough to call you just to say hey? Or to think about you enough to make sure you are included in making plans? Is it irrational to get your feelings hurt when you’re not heard in a relationship and walked away from when you are crying? Is it irrational to want someone to want you?

In my opinion love is an ACTION – not an act like an actor/actress does – that shows how much you love someone. Love is wanting to be around someone and when you are not you are constantly thinking about them. Love is wanting that person to be a part of every aspect of your life. Love is wanting to spend time with someone. Love is wanting to have conversations with someone. Love is honest. Love is kind. Love doesn’t shut you out and walk away from you. Love is genuine. Love listens to the words you say and takes them to heart. Love involves changing in small little ways to make the person you love happy – if that person needs more attention and affection you give it to them because you love them. Love is fair and not unjust. Love is caring and not hurtful. Love is consoling and not demeaning. Love builds you up and doesn’t put you down. In love, you think of the other person first – ways to make them happy, ways to make them feel loved and cared about. They aren’t a second or third thought – they are the first thought in everything you do. Real love CARES!!!

That kind of love doesn’t make someone irrational. It makes it true.
