The more intimately you know someone, the more clearly you’ll see their flaws.
This is why marriages fail, why children are abandoned, why friendship doesn’t last.
You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they’re out of money, under pressure, hungry, in a bad shape, etc.
Love is something different.
Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their nasty heart.
Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate.
Love is hard.
It’s like seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship.
