Life Is Too Short Not To Love Someone

Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute – even when the waters get deep, and dark. — Unknown

  1. I thought I had this, in fact I did have it. He was my all my everything, my whole life was consumed with him I was happy. Unfortunately he didn’t feel the same way, oh, he said all the right things and even did most of the right things, only everyday after I left for work he headed to a sleezy hotel to be with numerous other women. My heart literally ripped from my chest. I sometimes think never again but then I realize I had a live in me that seemed unimaginable and yes, hell yes I want to experience that with someone who wants to experience it too. Will I ever find that person? maybe not, but everyday I have to force myself to think it’s possible and I know cloud 9 does exist.

  2. After forty years together and surviving the death of one child and the life altering injury of our only other – I can truly attest to this being the absolute truth. I would never have survived without my best friend at my side!

    This is beautiful.
