Love is when the other person’s happiness is more important than your own. – H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
I know I said this wasn’t going to be a week of love quotes. It’s not, I promise. I just really loved this quote because this is what love is. I’m not talking romantic love, just pure honest love. When you care so much about somebody else that you’ll put them first no matter what. It’s kind of like the love a parent should have for a child. Most parents will always put their children first and do whatever it takes to keep them healthy, and happy. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we treated EVERYBODY this way? The world would be ideal if we could feel real love for everyone around us and we put their happiness first. And in this ideal world, others would be putting OUR happiness first and it would just create this never ending chain of happiness and love.
