I often hear people say, “Love hurts”, but that is not true. Loneliness hurts, rejection hurts, disrespect hurts, being lied to and cheated on hurts, and being degraded hurts, not love. Everyone gets these things confused with love, but in reality, love is the only thing in this world that covers up pain and helps you to heal. It takes courage for a person to open their heart to someone new because we all have that fear inside of us due to our past experiences. We must never let your past be an issue in your present or future. Love by accepting the person the way they are, flaws and all because true love looks beyond imperfections. True love makes you happy in a way that you have never experienced before. Love heals your broken parts and lifts you up, it never tears you down. Can we please change the narrative and stop measuring love by how much pain we can endure and how long we have endured it!
