The Best Way To Love Someone Is To Love Them Without A Manual

Brooke Cagle

The best way to love someone is to love them without a set of rules. Love them without following the rules you’re used to following. Love them the way you want to be loved. Love them without an agenda. Be who you are with them. Show your true self. Show them your best because at the end of the day your love is a reflection of who you are not who they are. You will be remembered for the way you loved not the way someone else loved you.

The best way to love someone is to give them your heart without expecting the same in return. It’s not about keeping score. It’s not about being equal. It’s not about what they can do for you.

Giving is the essence of love. Giving is the foundation of a true connection. Giving is liberating. Give because giving makes you richer. Give because giving blesses you. Give because some people may be in desperate need of your love and kindness even if they can’t reciprocate it. Give because it makes you stronger.

The best way to love someone is to love them like you’ve never been hurt or taken for granted or cheated on because every person deserves a real chance. Every person deserves the you that never thought twice about sending that text. The person who was never stingy with their heart or their words or their love. The person who was never afraid of opening up or letting someone in. The person who never played games or sent mixed signals to protect themselves.

Every person deserves the kind of love you gave to all the wrong ones.

The best way to love someone is to love them the way your heart is telling you to. Because even though our hearts don’t always know what’s best for us and sometimes they fool us and sometimes they lie to us. They can also lead us to exactly where we belong. They drive us to places we never thought we’d go. They give us a magical life when we were settling for an ordinary one. They show us a beautiful side of ourselves that our minds would have never revealed. They give us a kind of love we never knew existed. A love without a manual. A free-flowing love that captivates every single part of your body. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
