    Do you have true love?

    Love is a part  of life only if you choose to make it that way. How are you affected by true love? What would you consider is part of true  love?

    My partner and I met when I was still in a domestic violence relationship. I left only because my current partner, without actually doing anything other than admiring me, made me see that I was worth something.
    I suffer from borderline personality disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety disorders. Throughout some of my most traumatic breakdowns, he has been a consistent and loving figure. A support that I was always told I would never have.
    At times, I think he is insane for what he puts up with, but his presence is a persistent reminder that I am more than what I have been made to be and what my illness makes me. I am more than a victim or survivor or just a person with "a lot of baggage". By simply being by my side at the end of the day, he serves to remind me that I am an individual and deserve to live my life as such.
    Each day, I am thankful for the love he has shown me, which is helping me to conquer the issues I have faced as a sufferer of BPD. I am thankful for all he has done for me, including giving me two beautiful daughters and helping to raise my son.
    I had to learn to accept his love and I am so thankful that I have it. He truly is my miracle and I could not love him more for it. We have been through things that most couples could not dream of, yet here we stand, happier than ever.

    He made me realize true love is never giving up and always seeing the person you love for who they are, not who they can be in times of hardship.

    Yes, I am lucky enough to have a true love who makes me whole and complete and stronger than I ever thought possible.

    True love has made my life easier to bear and much more full of joy and passion than it would otherwise be.

    I see no need for true love to have a romantic component.  A mother's or father's love for a child, a child's love for a father or mother, a man or woman's love for a dear friend, or a dog's love for his human is no less true love than love between spouses.

    I think true love has little room for jealousy in it.  I think part of true love is loving the person more than what they do for and with you.  I think acceptance is absolutely vital for true love to exist.
