Love is patient, love is kind. Love does not watch ahead in Netflix, it does not post unflattering pictures, it does not concern itself with the number of likes. It does not unfollow.
Love does not talk shit in the comments, share attacking and hurtful posts, or relish in epic fails, but tags other people to spread the love of positive engagement. Love is not savage. Love does not switch to all caps easily, nor does it save a file of haters. Love does not delight with trolling, but rejoices with those woke AF.
Love always protects and never texts while driving. Love always trusts, and shares it’s streaming passwords. Love always hopes like it’s still ’08. Love always perseveres like Superhero movies at the box office.
Love never fails. It responds to your texts in a reasonable amount of time and remembers your Chipotle order by heart. Love knows all the spoilers and doesn’t post any of them.
Where there are YouTube stars, they will fade away. When there are hit songs, they will become oldies. Where there is Wikipedia, the entries will be updated. When I was a child I posted as a child with disregard for the repercussions, not seeing my true impact on the people around me. When I became a man I let go of frivolous posting and only shared what represented my true nature, letting go of my need to pose as cooler than I really am.
We see ourselves through the front facing camera, but through love we drop the screen and see ourselves in the eyes of those who bear our love.
