If there’s one thing my parents have taught me about true love, it’s that it is simple. You see today, everyone thinks that in order for love to be love, you have to literally buy into what the world says to do. I mean yeah, receiving flowers is wonderful, being able to spend money on extravagant things is cool,& being able to blow money on expensive trips is fun, but nothing compares to being able to connect with someone on a deeper level. I’m not talking about the ability to have a deep long conversation, I’m talking about the the small laughs, intimate conversations and connections that you can share over a cup of coffee at home or even a grimy coffee shop. Love is being there with each other & for each other. In the darkest of days & the brightest. Love is out of this world. It shouldn’t include any part of this secular world we live in. Now i’m not saying that we should completely rid of all these materialistic things because to be honest, it’s quite nice to have nice things. But at the end of the day, money comes and goes, and if it’s gone forever, I want to be able to say, “I don’t care, we have each other, & that’s all i’ll ever need.” Love is simple.
