7. 'I Love Watching Her Be Happy.'
The moment I took my girlfriend out to eat for her birthday.
It was a fondue place and I felt super out of my element. She loved every second of it. I hated the food. She loved it. I hated the drinks. She loved it. I hated the atmosphere. She loved it.
Despite all of that, I loved every second of the evening because she did. I got such great joy from her experiencing her time that I had a great time too.
I truly love this woman and me being happy because she was happy showed me I loved her.
8. When You Realize You Are Happy
When a person can make your day by simply existing.
How when you're with them, time seems to stop.
When you realize no one has ever made you feel happier, safer, or more complete.
9. When You're Completely Vulnerable, Yet Comfortable
I've been married 10 years. I know how I show love and how my wife shows me love. Forgiveness. Respect. Compromise.
Love is holding her hair when she pukes. Not going to bed angry - talking and working through troubles and arguments no matter how difficult the topic. That is key to "waking up happy". Not storming off in the middle of an argument. Accepting you're wrong. Undying respect, no matter what. You may be super mad at the other person for something entirely their fault but never lose respect. Forgiveness. Compromise. Doing things the other person enjoys because they enjoy it, and doing it with a smile on your face. Taking risks together. Accepting there are just some things the other person won't do. But always, Compromise. Forgiveness. Respect.
Love is not chemical imbalances or physiological changes in your body.
Love is the feeling and joy you get when doing things FOR the other person.
