What actually is Love?

The one happiness is to love and to be loved.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

If you love someone, coz you think he/she is really gorgeous, then it’s not love, its infatuation.

If you love someone coz you think you shouldn’t leave him/her , it’s not love : it’s compromise.

If you love someone coz you share everything with him/her, then it’s not love it’s friendship.

But if you feel the pain of other person more than your’s, even when he/she is stable and you cry it’s love.

If you get attached to other person but stay with him/her without any regrets then it’s love.

If you let him/her go knowing that he/she has to go even though he/she doesn’t want to, then it’s love.
