THIS. Oh the TRUTH. Love isn't a feeling it's a decision. A choice when the feeling is gone and life is hard and ugly and scary. This kind of Love is what remains when when you have nothing left of the dreams—this is the choice that says, "I promised. And you're worth keeping promises for."
If you didn't think it was worth it. If you didn't think there was a real chance. You wouldn't be here. Either that or you're a huge, terrible, abusive, sociopath. Since I don't believe the latter, I'll stick with the former...which...means...*sigh*... I'm still madly in love with you.
