True love is selfless love. We are concerned only for the other person. We tell them, ‘The door of my heart will always be open to you, whatever you do’, and we mean it. We just want them to be happy. True love is rare.
Many of us think that our special relationship is true love, not romantic love. Here is a test for you to discover which type of love it is.
Think of your partner. Picture them in your mind. Recall the day you came together and the wonderful times you have enjoyed ever since. Now imagine receiving a letter from your partner. It tells you that they have fallen deeply in love with your best friend, and the two of them have run away to live together. How would you feel?
If it were true love, you would be so thrilled that your partner has found someone even better than you, and is now even more happy. You would be delighted that your partner and best friend were having such a good time together. You’d be ecstatic that they were in love. Isn’t your partner’s happiness the most important thing in true love?
