Maybe love is when someone arouses your heart in ways that no one else did before.
Maybe love is the ability to connect to the good pieces of yourself, the ones that are not always so visible.
Maybe love is your recognition and amazement in being surprised with how much care you’re capable of giving,
the amount of worry you can have, the fervent desire in wanting the best for the other person, and your ability to lift them higher.
Maybe it’s really that simple. To really love is to connect to the goodness in you.
