What is love?

How do you know if you love someone?

Here's love according to me:

Love: 1.
when you could hurt someone and choose to value them instead 2. when someone you love can't meet your needs and you love them without expectation, while also loving yourself 3. when you love someone just because of the mere fact that they're here, beautiful for who they are, priceless treasures in jars of clay 4. when you love them, you feel love toward yourself, life, the Being and all beings. When you love, you are alive.

Nice definitions :-)

I think there's something too about when you love someone you want to draw them out into fullness or help them become who they are. And you allow them to do the same for you.
