True love is not a strong, fiery, impetuous passion. It is, on the contrary, an element calm and deep. It looks beyond mere externals, and is attracted by qualities alone. It is wise and discriminating, and its devotion is real and abiding.” – Ellen G. White

To begin, let me ask all the people reading this article to answer what is true love according to you?Please take a moment to pen down what you feel.
I am pretty sure some may come up with answers like “True love is all about being connected to a person with heart and mind”,”True love is accepting someone with all its flaws”,etc.
But let me ask you people can you really identify the difference between your heart and mind?Can you really tell what comes from heart and what from mind?Isn’t accepting someone with all its flaws sounds more like a favor than true love?
Well,true love is the most misunderstood topic in this era where youth take it as a status symbol,a channel to satisfy some of their needs,a medium of time pass and a mode to enjoy.
Have you ever realized how the mother to a new born child starts showering her unconditional love the moment the nurse puts the baby in her hand?Here is where the answer lies to the question, what is true love-its just getting lost in the gleam of those eyes first met,the world stops for a second,the mind stops functioning,its just only the heart which beats aloud.
Infatuation vs True Love
Infatuation is just when a person looks good at a glance,he or she just fits in your imagination or standards and you think you are in love.For instance,lets say someone’s beauty dimensions closely fit in the standards of beauty defined by you say a sharp nose,toned face,big eyes,etc you think its love and start dating that person but next day you realize your temperaments don’t match its not because your partner has changed its because your imagination changes frequently,when someone passes your first level of imagnation you set up even harder level next time.

True love on the other hand is free from the restrictions of imaginations,it is unconditional and pure.True love is when you always feel the desire to meet someone,look at them endlessly,admire all their flaws.True love is not buying costly gifts,celebrating birthdays or planning trips.Its all about helping your partner to achieve success,motivating them and holding their back when they are bouncing off the walls.
As you all know a sapling cant grow by merely just planting,it needs a proper ecosystem with balanced light and moisture to blossom.Similarly,in true love your partner will rightly know what you need and what you don’t.
In short true love is when two people dream for a single thing,set their goals and work together to achieve them.
