We walk into love with expectation. I love you because you provide me with mental and emotional satisfaction and you love me because I give you those things, too. But we love each other because we are expecting to be given something. And that isn’t really love at all, is it? We already start our love with debt, with a “What can you give me?” mentality and we ruin it before it can ever blossom. Love, if it truly does exist, must be in the form of giving, not of receiving. We do not give to those who we love, we love those to whom we give.
