Listening to: Alien Ant Farm
"Love is when you find someone that you involuntarily place above everyone and everything in your life. There are no doubts and there is no Someone Else. There are no other possible candidates for your heart. Because the person you love is all that you see.
Love is fear. But it's something that's so powerful (when you feel it) that it can't scare you away. It's what you go to, not away from.
I think loving someone is what makes you want them more than anything, but not necessarily need them. I think needing them is a choice you make.
The wanting is what's important. It's the basis of your love for the person.
I think love is complicated in that you can see all the signs that say you're in it, but you never truly are until you admit it. And admitting it means submitting to it as well.
Love means you don't see anyone else but the person you love.
That's what love is.
You can't say you love someone, and then have feelings for someone else.
You just can't. Otherwise, you're not in love with them. But what's the rush to be in love? No one's holding a gun to your head to make you say it. If you don't feel it, then you don't feel it."

If you think you could put the word "love" into a better perspective, come find me and I will smash your face into a cement brick, because you are wrong. I just wanted to put this here, because it feels oddly RELEVANT (to me at least
for now). But guys, when I say, "I love you", as we're leaving, or when you say something that makes me laugh, or when we've been sitting cuddling in a movie theater for 2+ hours, I really mean it. And maybe I don't mean it like ^ that ^ (maybe I do), but I mean it in a, "damn, without you as a friend I would be lost. You make my life worth living every day." kind of way, or a "Dude thanks for actually caring about me." kind of way.
And some people say I use the word "love" too freely, but when I say it, I mean it. And maybe the way I love Megan isn't the same as the way I love TJ, or the way I love Kitty compared to the way I love the kids at my Chemistry table, but I do LOVE them all. And life is too short to spend it being pissed off at people or in fights or stressing about school or crying
so why not do the best you can to make yourself and other people happy? I mean you can see it in a person physically when you tell them you love them
it makes them feel like they're worth something. Makes you feel like someone actually cares about you. If you actually, really, truly know me, you know I don't say I love you in the same way. When I tell you as a friend, when I tell you as my family, when I tell you as a "lover", they're all different.
So chastise me or anyone else all you want for "ruining" the word love, but I know what it means when I say it, and I know that a tone of voice is hard to decipher, but I'm sure you all know how I feel about you. And kids, it sure would be a hell of a lot harder for me to go through every day if I didn't have you to hug and cuddle and hang out with and talk to every day, or once a week, or in passing. Because I love you and when I say that I mean it.
