Why change a person to love them?

I saw the above picture posted on my facebook timeline and started thinking about some relationships. As a teenager pumped high with teen emotions I did a lot of crazy things. What I thought was love wasn’t and what I thought wasn’t love, actually was. The problem is media and influence from friends and family has made us think about love in a distorted way. When I think about true love I do not think about all I can get from the relationship – that’s not love. True love is patient, kind, long suffering and keeps no record of wrong amongst other things. It is easy to do none of the above and ascribe the word love to the emotion. The picture above was a great reminder that if we cannot accept someone for who they are, then maybe we have not accepted them at all. Nissi.
