Love connects. Love brings people together. It lifts people up, not down. If love is not making you happy, if love is not bringing you closer to yourself, if love is not revealing who you really are to you, then it is not love. It is something else.
Love is meant to build your life, not destroy it. Love is not a destroyer. Love is a builder. According to Suzy Kassem, “Love is meant to lift you up, not tear you down. It is meant to strengthen you, not weaken you.”
