True love is the one reason you have to stick to your lover, when there are clearly hundreds of reasons to leave.
This is a feeling that makes life worth living. So many times, i wonder why many relationships fail. Then i got to know that relationships fail for many reasons. Some would say that things didn’t seem to work out. If you are truly in love with a person, you would go the extra mile to make sure that your relationship works out. Finding true love is one of the hardest things in life.
Everybody wishes to have someone that loves them truly and unconditionally. But the question is this, when we see such persons, how many of us are ready to love them back. Majority of the times, we mistake lust for love. Though, they are very simple to differentiate if you wish to. First of all. ask your self what boundaries you could cross for the other person. If you sincerely know that you can’t go the extra mile, then there is no need saying that you love him or her.
Love is kind and kind. Its not boastful, its not envious, its not rude, its not selfish. Love forgives and does not keep records of wrongs done by a lover. Love hopes, it protects, its faithful, loyal, respectful, it perseveres and love never fails.
This feeling called love does not only depend on your emotions, it involves devotion and action. Some times, you find yourself doing things you won’t do for others for your love. Love carries a certain immunity. For instance, some people don’t know the password to their siblings cell, but their lovers know. Love brings out the best part in a person. Every human has flaws, but if you’re truly in love you won’t brood over them for too long .Rather, you will focus on the person’s perfection.
What is true love?
True love is that happiness you feel around your partner, even when you’re too sad to do as much as blink. Sometimes, i might not be in a good mood but a call from my lover is enough to keep me happy throughout the day. I might even experience that happiness in my dreams. There are two beauties of a relationship, they are;
- Altar vows (marriage)
- Growing old together
There is a saying that goes thus; True love is not Romeo and Juliet who died together, but Grandma and Grandpa who aged together. Getting married and growing old with the love of your life is the best gift any body can offer to his or her lover.
When you can’t stay for some hours without hearing from your partner, then you can say you’re in love. People makes time for their loved ones, no matter how busy they are. Going the extra mile for your loved ones, making them happy, and being yourself with your lover actually shows love. Sometimes, my lover calls just to check up on me or to say ‘i miss you’ or ‘i love you’, this shows that no matter how busy you’re, someone is your priority. When you can’t stay mad at your lover for more than a day or you forgive after you’re wronged, then you might or can say ‘I’m in love’.
True love stories
Am going to tell you three stories about true love.
Once, a boy and a girl truly loved each other and were a couple, which means that they were dating. One day, the boy called the girl and told her they shouldn’t call each other for a day and see who gets affected the most. On the day they chose, the boy didn’t call the girl but he was not himself. He loved her so much that not talking to her spoiled his day, but he decided to play along and didn’t call. While the girl on the other hand equally loved the guy, but she didn’t let his absence spoil her day. She went out to have fun with friends.
The next day, she went to the boy’s home and met people crying. When she got into his apartment, she saw his corpse with a written note that said “not seeing you or talking to you yesterday made me feel so much pain i never knew existed. My heart couldn’t take it anymore and i knew i was going to die (and he did). How were you able to stay a day without talking to me? i guess you might be stronger. But i know you love me too. Take care and i promise to protect you. I died for love. I love you”.
A boy and a girl were madly in love with each other and in the course of their relationship, the girl died. The boy cried like a baby day and night. Then one day, while sleeping he saw the girl in his dreams. She was in heaven playing with some group of girls, they were wearing white gowns and they all had a lighted candle apart from his girlfriend. So he asked her why and she said ” each time i light up my candle your tears puts it off, please stop crying, am fine here but i miss you and your tears makes me cry”. After saying this, she wiped his tears with her hands and he woke up.
A boy and a girl who were dating was on a bike, speeding down the road. The girl was so scared because she was afraid of speeding bikes. This was the dialogue they had:
Girl: Baby please slow down, am scared of such speed.
Boy: I won’t unless you give me a hug.
(She did, but the boy didn’t slow down)
Girl: Please slow down, i beg of you.
Boy: I won’t unless you give me a kiss.
(She did, but the boy didn’t slow down)
Girl: Am gonna have a panic attack, i need you to slow down.
Boy: I won’t this time unless you take this helmet from me and wear it, its bugging me.
(She did, and the boy slowed down)
In the papers the next day, there was a report about an accident involving two teenagers; a boy and a girl on a bike. The bike crashed into a building. It was found out that the bike had brake problems, which the boy noticed in the middle of their journey. But he didn’t want the girl to know so she won’t panic. So he cunningly got a last hug and kiss from her, and also gave her his helmet to protect her from harm. She got away with only bruises, while the boy died. He died for love
The moral from the above stories is just the importance of going the extra mile just to make your lover happy and keep them safe. No matter what happens between you and someone you truly love, your feelings will never die or diminish.

4 Sayings about true love

“Only the love of a good woman will make a man question every choice, every action. Only love makes a warrior hesitate for fear that his lady will find him cruel. Seriously only love makes a man both the best he will ever be, and the weakest. Sometimes all in the same moment. -Wicked
“Falling in love is very real, but I used to shake my head when people talked about soul mates, poor deluded individuals grasping at some supernatural ideal not intended for mortals but sounded pretty in a poetry book. Then, we met, and everything changed, the cynic has become the converted, the sceptic, an ardent zealot.”
“When you find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will stand in front of you when other’s cast stones, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who will hold your hand when your sick, who thinks your pretty without makeup, the one who turns to his friends and say, ‘that’s her’, the one that would bear your rejection because losing you means losing his will to live, who kisses you when you screw up, watches the stars and names one for you and will hold and rock that baby for hours so you can sleep…..you marry him all over again, cause that’s love.”

Love is not just a feeling that comes and goes, because it takes a deal of energy, strength, charisma, and boldness to fully accept that you can go the extra mile for a person. Most times, people act like novel characters in their relationship. You should always remember that those stories are fictions. When you have an issue with your lover, try to settle it. Don’t let ego take the larger part of your heart.
Do things selflessly and be considerate. Give your lover space, trust them, be faithful and loyal. Don’t betray them and don’t lie to them. Call them occasionally even if its to say i love you, i miss you or just to check up on them. This way you will have made their day. Give them gifts when ever you can, don’t wait for festive seasons like birthdays, anniversaries or Christmas. Show them you care and give them pleasant surprises once in a while. Love is Life.
