What is love? Is it just chemical reactions in your brain? Is it just a passing feeling of passion for someone? Or maybe it's something more.

Love is not self serving. It doesn't leave when there are difficulties. It accepts the flaws and blemishes because it knows that we're all human and make mistakes.

Love is not conditional. It's not based on someone's actions or behaviors. Because love goes deeper than that. It looks past the exterior and instead focuses on the inside of someone. It looks at the heart. And that kind of love is unconditional.

I love this quote:

"The truth is that the more intimately you know someone,the  more clearly you'll see their flaws. That's just the way it is. This is why marriages fail, why children are abandoned, why friendships don't last. You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they're out of money, or under pressure, or hungry, for goodness' sake. Love is something different. Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart. Love is patient, and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice, it's seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship."  Unknown
