What makes love last?

Actually many factors contribute to a long lasting love. If I was to choose one factor it would be, commitment.

Relationships last because the people involved are committed to each other. The partners make a conscious decision to commit to each other and put each other first. This means that decisions are made based on what’s important for the relationship and for your partner not what’s important for you only. Meaning, I shouldn’t cheat because it would hurt my partner immensely, I should treat my partner with respect, I should learn to empathise and understand my partner and what’s important to him/her.

Commitment in my opinion is the most important factor in making love last. And it’s a choice each partner has to make. That’s the beauty about it. You choose. It’s not up to somebody else. It’s within your control. You have a choice, to be committed or not.

Love, like life, is so insecure. It moves in our lives and occupies its sweet space in our hearts so easily. But it never guarantees that it will stay there forever. Probably that’s why it is so precious.

It takes two person to fall in love with and just one to fall out of love. In this world of insecurities and heartbreaks, people still run after love. Falling in love is one of the best feelings in the world and getting reciprocated is another. It takes a lot to make that love last. Love is not always about those sweet talks and stuffs. It’s mostly about understanding, dedication and specially trust. If you can’t trust a person, you can’t be in love with him/her for long. And specially, you can’t force someone to stay in love. All you can do is not to give up on love and work hard for that love to not go away. Even after that the love wears out, it’s okay to let go of the love and move on.

“NOT everyone in this world has the fate to cherish the fullest form of love.
some are born ,just to experience the abbreviation of it.”
