Love Is Not Enough

#Inourculture many of us idealize Love. We see it as some lofty cure, for all of life's problems. Our movies, our stories and history all celebrates it as life's ultimate goal, the final solution for all our pain and struggle, and because we idealize Love, we overstimate it. As a result our relationships pay price😣😣.
When we believe that "All We Need Is Love" then we're more likely to ignore 'Fundamental Values' such as respect, humanity and commitment towards the people we care about. After all, if Love solves everything then why bother with all the other stuff- all of the hard stuff??
But if we believe that "Love Is Not Enough" then we understand that healthy relationships require more than pure emotions or lofty passions. We understand that there are things more important in our lives and our relationships, then simply being in Love.
And the success of our relationships hinges on these deeper and more important values❤️❤️.
