~ take note ~


"In false love your aim is to use the other person to fulfill your happiness. 
Your love is conditional: you give it only as long as the person is affirming you and meeting your needs. 
And it's nonvulnerable: you hold back so that you can cut your losses if necessary. 
But in true love, your aim is to spend yourself and use yourself for the happiness of the other, because your greatest joy is that person's joy. 
Therefore your affection is unconditional: you give it regardless of whether your loved one is meeting your needs. 
And it's radically vulnerable. 
You spend everything, hold nothing back, give it all away." 

- Timothy Keller
