Have you ever thought about the true definitions of love and what it actually looks like?

There are many components that make up the true definitions of love that are beautiful but also difficult.

True love, not just romantic love, is hard.

But anything worth having comes with a challenge, right?

Hopefully these definitions will shed some new light on how you view love!

1. Selfless

One if the true definitions of love is someone who is selfless in their actions and thoughts, and who puts others first.

It's pretty difficult to be selfless since we're selfish by nature, but if you truly have love in your heart, especially sacrificial love for your children, you can work to become selfless!

2. Kind-hearted

Someone who truly loves will bestow kindness on others.

Kindness flows from those who know what love is and others are keenly aware of it by their words and actions.

I think of encouraging words, respectfulness, and acts of service- however, it's more than that.

Someone who is kind by nature will have an empathetic heart, will hurt when others hurt, and will rejoice when others rejoice.

3. Lets the Little Things Go

Have you ever known someone who holds onto every little tiff and offense and brings them up when provoked?

I can tell you for sure that holding grudges and not forgiving offenses are both signs that someone doesn't have true love in their heart!

Letting stuff go and realizing the importance of relationships and people are what make a person loving and genuine.

4. Joyful

Want to show that you love others well?

Be joyful!

Smile often and mean it, and genuinely be interested in how others are doing.

And joy is really synonymous with peace because even when there is chaos around you, your heart feels peace and inner joy.2
