Love Is: compassion

Some things we go through in life and in love are quite solitary. No-one can really help fix the problems or mend the hurt. Love is knowing just what to do when someone in your heart is struggling to recapture their usual spark. Sometimes it is sitting quietly beside them, or taking them out and helping them think other things for a while, or simply giving them space for a few hours to work things out.

Love is knowing exactly how and when to show compassion, even when you feel like someone is being a bit silly about something. When you open your heart and arms instead of your mouth and simply be there for the ones you love – these are the times that bring a closeness and unity that no hurt can ever touch.
