What’s it like to fall in love?
Love means different things to different people, so it depends.
What does it mean to you?
Every once in awhile, you meet someone you react to. Something about this person is special, but you can’t figure out exactly what it is. It’s almost like being around them makes you glow — even thinking about them, or just seeing a picture of them makes you glow inside.
And you feel something else too. It’s the wish to preserve this wonderful feeling, because you know trying to grab onto it could crush it. And trying to enclose it could make it wither and fade. So you feel almost reverent of this glow, and this person that brings these feelings out in you. You begin to question your purpose, because now one of your life’s missions is to figure out the proper way to move through your existence. You’re suddenly aware of the respectful distance that people need to maintain between themselves; you want to be close enough to appreciate their inner beauty, but also leave enough space to allow the freedom to grow and fully experience life.
Your admiration grows when you realize that this person is teaching you with unspoken words. Your heart is learning happiness, and you want to be a better person. You feel both desire and detachment, but most of all your heart is overflowing with gratitude.
