True love starts within oneself. You have to be able to love yourself first. It is when you learn to love yourself that you will be able to truly give and receive love from others.

When you learn to love yourself and stand up for yourself, then you will be ready to find your soul mate, someone you will love for the rest of your life.

True love is consistent and never wavering. This person who says they love you today won’t say they don’t love you tomorrow. There will be no blackmail and no mind games. You will be spending your time with a person who will make you better, both as an individual and as a partner.

True love is based on mutual respect. It is not based on manipulation, brainwashing and intimidation.

Unlike the fake love that is rushed and hurried, true love takes time. You need time to fall in love, and you need time to process your emotions.

This person you love deeply will be there for you when you go through hardships. This person you love will not stay when times are good but run away when times are bad.. Their words will match their actions.

Whatever your hopes and dreams are, the right person will admire them and support you in fulfilling them. The right person will never think lowly of your goals and make you give up on them.

If they truly love you, they won’t lie to you. They won’t cheat on you. They won’t hurt you.

You have to bear in mind that true love never hurts.

What truly hurts is when we realize we were lied to, cheated or never loved.

Fake love brings you nothing but discomfort and sadness. True love, on the other hand, brings you joy and peace.

We’ve all been hurt, and we all know heartbreak, but true love is worth fighting for. When you find someone who you truly love and who truly loves you back, you will forget about the fake love relationships that did not work out.

And you will be genuinely happy with your right person. That is what really matters at the end of the day.
