"what i thought love was is so much less than what it is"
i saw that quote here and it just totally struck me. and when i think about it i don't necessarily think about romantic love (although that definitely comes to mind, especially when thinking about boyf). a lot of the love i feel is for friends and family. i know when i think of my nieces and nephews, it's like, there isn't anything i wouldn't do for them, that's how much i love them, it's how i think of them constantly, and they come up in conversations with people who could care less about my 4 year old nephew, or hardly know me well enough to understand why the story is so funny or adorable. that's the kind of love it is. and i definitely never expected that, or maybe i knew it was there all along but i think that the realization isn't always there and then i'm struck with it, like, when i read a quote like this.
