WHAT DEFINES TRUE LOVE FOR YOU?
There are different ways we accept love and feel loved. Those words were electrifying enough to bring me back to my happy and harmonious zone. Life's rat race vanished and I felt like a noodle. Those same words and moment earned SO some "jet out of jail" passes for later days.
One time, I was talking to someone and he explained the way that men and women still have needs and wants very much like the ancient times.
"Men looks for their Princesses and women looks for the Princes." Read into it however you like, but the bottom line is at this age, I know my Prince is not going to be capable of everything, and I am not going to be eating bon-bons on a beach.
REVERSE PSYCHOLOGYThe bottom line is when he said: "I'm Tired of Watching You Slave For Me!" it actually puts him out of the guilt of feeling like I am always working so hard for him. From now on, if I wanted to eat well, it's my pain and my gain.
It's silly, but if you've read the psychology or advises about love, it's like this:
"People can love each other, but it's a blessing and utmost satisfaction to be loved the way you want to be loved."
In the same respect, I've always loved SO and my family members in the way that I prefer to be loved. I would take the burden if I could. I would want to be the heroin that comes to the rescue, I would make myself uncomfortable if that's what it takes for them to be comfortable, defend them when they are being harassed...and that's the way I define love.
See - there is a different kind of love - there's the Amanda way, and there's the SO way - maybe his way is about letting me do what you I want to do, even if he doesn't like it, and even if it's going to kick me in the ass.
There is no right way or wrong way to love. It boils down to the way you want to be loved and if the way your partner loves you will electrify your heart and fits your definition of love.
I would love to know your thoughts on the subject, and noted that the circumstances varies.
