Love Is.. Choosing Not To Jump Ship

jump ship

“The truth is that the more intimately you know someone, the more clearly you’ll see their flaws. That’s just the way it is. This is why marriages fail, why children are abandoned, why friendships don’t last. You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they’re out of money or under pressure or hungry, for goodness’ sake. Love is something different. Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart. Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice, it’s seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship.”

  1. Take care ,love life, be careful in propagating your seeds, you are too precious to be seen everywhere. I swear you are loved and special..

  2. to have a better journey in life
    make a plan to direct you and choose the road that is narrow where along the way one will encounter obstacles to learn & make one strong enough to face life, then see light and sunshine at the end which is fulfilling, rather than a wide road where you encounter no obstacles but at the end makes one frustrated and disappointed. We always have the choice narrow road or wide road, to be 🙂 or to be 🙁
    Life is what we make it…so never rush & never force things to hapoen according to your time and will… everything has it's own timing & phase.

  3. As long as the person is abusive (verbal, emotion, physical or mental) LOVE does not hurt! Thousands of women dead every year following the words posted.

    1. well I think this thing about woman is more of men thinking they own women,its this thing that men feel like they are superior than women,more like they think they possess them,and those are not flaws,they are choices,this post is about flaws,by my understanding,not choices

    2. It could lead an abusive person to remain in a relationship that is deadly, if they do not have a strong support system nor emotionally/mentally strong enough to leave regardless of finances.
