Firstif you are in lovethats a good thingthats about the best thing that can happen to anyone. Dont let anyone make it small or light to you. SecondThere are several kinds of love. One is a selfish, mean, grasping, egotistical thing which uses love for self-importance. This is the ugly and crippling kind. The other is an outpouring of everything good in youof kindness and consideration and respectnot only the social respect of manners but the greater respect which is recognition of another person as unique and valuable. The first kind can make you sick and small and weak but the second can release in you strength, and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didnt know you had.|
