I think some people forget that love and sacrifice go hand in hand. You sacrifice your pride, you sacrifice your self, you sacrifice key parts of your very existence to delve into another being and understand his or her stories. It's easy to lose your way when tribulations arrive; it's easy to be jerked out of that chimerical conglomerate of a person's best traits into what you believe to be a harsh reality, but love is about tolerance and consideration and patience. Love is about taking a deep breath before you act. Love is about thinking before speaking. Love is about gauging the chasm between you and Conclusion before you jump. Love isn't about pointing fingers. Love is about joining hands. Love is about forgiveness. Love is unconditional. My love for you is unconditional.
