Love is pure, and infinite. It is equal throughout all of your close relationships (not just sexual ones, friendships, family relationships, even working relationships), and it can be expressed in many different ways. When people say love hurts, they're talking nonsense. Loving someone who doesn't love you back or takes your love for granted hurts, but true love makes you feel good about yourself, and it makes you want to support those you love through harder times. Yes, love and time are both great healers.
