An Active Noun



“Love isn’t a state

of perfect caring.

It is an active noun,

like struggle.

To love someone

is to strive to accept

that person exactly

the way he or she is,

right here and now.”


~ Fred Rogers


Even the most perfect relationship will have

its moment of struggle.

Eat out or stay at home; ball game or movie;

this choice, that choice; always  an opportunity

to agree to disagree.

What makes a loving relationship is

the willingness to compromise without keeping score.

Today, know that a common ground

is what reduces most struggles,

so do not try to force your round love

into a square hole.

Love is an active noun.

Love is helping someone love themselves.
