“Unless it is mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it’s a waste of time. There are too many mediocre things in life. Love should not be one of them.”
I saw this quote the other day, and it stuck with me because I’m not sure that I agree with it.
One thing that I love the most about my relationship with Jeremy is that it is easy. Our love is not one of highs and lows. It’s a steady and consistent love.
Perhaps that makes it mediocre?
I would never describe my love for my husband as mad or passionate. I would use words like: steady, reliable, comfortable, unwavering.
Maybe for some people that would translate to boring.
But for me, it’s everything I’ve ever wanted. I want a love that will last a lifetime. I want a companion to spend my life with. I want someone who I know will be by my side long after the “passion” has faded.
I don’t want madness. I want easy/effortless. I don’t want extraordinary. I want reliable. I don’t want passionate. I want steady.
