I love you any way. I love you regardless. Just plain I Love You. Any way you say it, it should mean the same. You love somebody past all their faults, negatives and history. You just love them.
I love my kids. It's not a choice. I love them with all that I have. It's not that I have to love them because they are mine. I was made to love them. I am part of them. They are a part of me - an extension of my own heart. Loving them is like loving me...though I feel I love them more than I could possibly love myself.
Love between people isn't ever the same. I don't love my friends as I love my children as I love a partner as I love my family. It differs, but it's still the same. It's LOVE - and LOVE is good.
I tell myself I am worth it. I deserve that kind of love. I can give that kind of love. There is someone I can love that deeply who will return it. I won't love you the same as I love my children. I won't love my children the same as I love you. It's different. It's good. It's special. It's out there...somewhere. When I find it, I promise I will love you anyway.
