1. If you are going to love, love as you mean it and love intentionally
You should tell that person that you care about and love intentionally. Look that person in the eyes and kiss that person with passion and fearlessness which bubbles up from your chest. Don’t wonder whether or not they feel the same energy. You should not stress over what you have right now and whether it will grow one day. Do not be afraid of the way life is imperfect and fragile. Just love.
2. If you are going to love, love like tomorrow will never come.
Love like this is the next day, next hour, next second that is all that you have. Love like the person standing in front of you is the best damn thing that you have ever seen.
3. If you are going to love, you should love like there is no one else.
Love like you cannot get enough of their touch, their smile and their laughter mixing with yours. Love like you have never even considered life without them, and also believe that they also have wished the same for you. This is what it means to love intentionally!
4. If you are going to love, you should love as you have never been hurt before.
Love just like you have never experienced the pain of a broken heart or dishonesty in the voice of someone. Love just like you have never watched a relationship fall apart or two people that once had a passion for each other fade into the sky like some old, as well as burnt-out stars.
5. If you are going to love, you should love with ferocity.
You should love like it is all that you are meant to do, as in all honesty, what else is there? Give the person that you care for your whole heart. You should give your hand, as well as your smile and your soul. Show yourself beyond the layers. Get vulnerable, get messy.
6. If you are going to love, you should love with eagerness.
You should show your person that you are there and that you are listening. Be present when they need you. Make plans for when you will see each other next. You should be invested, interested, as well as excited. Show them in every possible way how much they mean to you.
7. If you are going to love, you should love with purpose.
You should love with all that you have and all that you are. Love, even when the world will make it difficult or says that you should give up. You should love through your actions, as well as your words, and your choices. You should choose to love your person, no matter the ups and downs too.
8. If you are going to love, you should love with intention.
You should not half – love. You should not ‘almost,’ or ‘kind of’ commit. You should not waste time giving only portions of yourself so that both of you will miss out on the real thing. You should not lose what could be by playing victim to your fear.
9. If you are going to love, you should just do that.
You just need to love and be loved. You should never stop. You will always love and love intentionally.
