When you say you love someone, what do you mean?
Do you love them because of what they do for you, how they make you feel, and what they give to you.
When you say you can’t live without someone
Tell me, what do you mean?
It is because you can’t live without the things they do for you
The true measure of love is not what you feel because of what someone can do for you.
The true measure of love is the length to which you will go for someone other than yourself.
So if you say you love someone
The question to yourself should be
Exactly what am I willing to sacrifice for someone as imperfect as them.
