If there’s one thing you can give to the person you love, it’s loving them the way they deserve to be loved. This all comes down to loving them unconditionally.
Love someone, not for the reason of having someone love you back. Nor because you need someone to be by your side. Love them for the sake of loving them.
Loving someone, really loving, does not happen very often. People admitted that they have felt real love only once or twice in their lifetime. But we tend to ruin it because we become too possessive, or expect something in return.
What we do not understand is that experiencing such love is the reward. When you love someone truly, give it your all, as if you only have the now to love them.
Here are some other ways that you can better love someone you really care about.
7 Ways You Can Better Show Love To Someone:
1. Be honest with your feelings.
Tell the person that you love them. It’s really simple but most people forget about this basic expression of their love. It’s like they avoid letting the other person know how they really feel, like they are ashamed of it.
Don’t lead them to second guess. If you’re honest with your feelings for them, you won’t be afraid of telling them straight in the eye. Be proud of how you feel, not many people can feel real love for someone, and it doesn’t happen really often.
For whatever reason your soul expresses such love for them, it does. Do not question it. It’s bigger than you can consciously grasp. So just be honest and tell them. You may not receive the expected response, but at least you were honest with them and with yourself.
2. Love them as if tomorrow never comes.
Imagine if they leave tomorrow forever, and now is the only chance to love them. Seize the moment while you still have it. Keep the most of every second. Love them like they’re the best thing that ever happened in your life. And let them feel it.
3. Love them as if you can’t find anyone like them.
Has anyone asked you, “Of all the people, why me”?
That is how true love feels like. It’s loving a person as if they’re the only species in this world. Many people may look like them but not all people can make you feel the way you they make you feel for some unexplainable reason only your soul knows.
You love their smile. You love their touch. You love their laughter. And you just can’t get enough of them. And that’s ok. Love them as you do and be open to express it.
4. Love like it’s your first.
When you love someone truly, never allow the memories of the past to interfere. Whether you have been through hell in the past, love as if it’s your first time.
Because it is your first time loving them. And it is your only time. Every person you truly love is a whole different experience that cannot be even compared with someone else. Love them like they are your first love because they are.
You may have witnessed how relationships were torn apart, or you might have experienced a bad relationship yourself. But it doesn’t mean this one would be the same as those.
5. Give them everything that you are.
Put all your cards on the table. Give them your heart, your soul, your everything. You can only truly love when you love beyond fear.
There’s no need to hold back anything when you’re truly honest with your feelings. Show them your flaws, weaknesses and fears.
Be brave enough to love with an open heart even if it means you might get hurt. It’s better to have a chance at experiencing real love and fail than making sure you do not get hurt and prevent all your chances of experiencing it.
6. Love them with purpose.
Loving someone means loving them until your last breath. You not only love them for the time being nor for the times that the circumstances are favorable.
When you say you love someone, you need to back it up with enthusiasm and passion. Create loving circumstances. Do the things that make them happy.
Plan a regular date, spend as much time with them, and show how much they mean to you.
7. Love them with commitment.
Loving with intention is not being scared of commitment.
Don’t love when you can only give them half of yourself or your time. We are all busy, but really loving someone means you are sure to always find a way for them if they need you.
Of course, you have priorities and they have them too, but you can always arrange time for each other. This flexibility and understanding is developed when you really love someone.
