To experience a love that builds you up and encourages you to always be yourself that is a priceless lifelong gift.

How did Gibran phase it? "Love is happiness trembling."
The kind of love you speak of sounds like when one person cries, the other one tastes salt.

Sometimes people have a blueprint for how they think their life should be and it's hard to fit someone into that without asking them to change and be the way you want them to be. I prefer your attitude--throw away the plans and improvise. Telling someone, be who you are and I will adapt--THAT is true love, and it certainly is a beautiful gift.

I would say it is! But I would also say I have not always been allowed to be myself, even in my marriage....
