Yet another aspect of love is Honesty
If you can't be honest with yourself, how can you be with your mate? If you allow your anger, emotional hurt, or selfish concerns and goals overrule your love for your mate; or if you allow them to overwhelm your reasoning so much that you can not stop even in anger and say: "I LOVE YOU", then you do not love that person.
What? Yes, even when angry or upset, it is important to be able to communicate to your mate that you are angry yes, but you still love them.
Why? Because often this diffuses the argument or misunderstanding; and it also allows the mate the opportunity to examine their love for you and appreciate that you truly do love them. It allows them hope that things will improve even if it's a little later. It contributes to strengthening the bond between you and thereby pleases the heavenly father.
Love is NOT easy, is it?
Food for thought, God Bless!
