Real love begins where nothing is expected in return. – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
When you love someone, you should do it blindly. You should not love anyone because of any particular reason. If you want to love a person, you should be loving him or her, with all your heart and not because there is some ground ahead of it.
It takes a lot of courage and determination to love someone truly, and the moment you think that you have fallen in love, pause for a moment and ask yourself if you are actually dedicated towards that person.
You must not have any special reason to love that person, and rather you should love the other person blindly. You must love him or her, and trust that person despite all odds.
No matter how the situations turn out to be, you should still admire that person with all your heart.
When you start expecting something from the other person, it simply means that you have your own reasons to love that individual. You love someone for your selfish reasons, how can it be true then?
Hence, make sure that you love people just for the way they are, without expecting anything from them in return. Love them selflessly, without worrying about you trying to fetch something in return.
You should have blind faith in the person you love. Do things as you do them for your child, love your partner as if that’s the last thing you have got for yourself on this earth. There should not be any barrier that is keeping you two are separate from each other.
When you do not expect anything in return from the other person, that’s when you call it to be ‘love’ in the true sense. Love people for who they are, and not for something that you want out of them.
Try to be true to the people you love, and take as much care as you can. Make sure that you believe that person and at the same time, make efforts to keep that person happy, as well as, you should have the urge to gain his or her trust on you.
If you do all of this, things are sure to turn in your favor with the growing time. Only when you have zero expectations from the other person, and you still feel that your love is as strong as you had it before, you can claim it to be true love.
