I Thought Love Didn't Cost a Thing?


“Some things in life are priceless, love isn't one of them.”

We all want love. We can pretend it doesn’t matter but we’d all be lying to ourselves. Waking up and falling in love with someone more and more everyday can be a beautiful thing. Something everyone deserves to experience in their lifetime. But is there a cost? Yes, people fall in love in mysterious ways but are our minds prematurely writing checks our hearts won’t be able to cash later? They say nothing in life is free so why would love be an exception? These things considered, how far should you go to find and experience love? How much of yourself should you be willing to sacrifice to discover your better half? Is there such a thing as giving up too much for companionship?  These are all questions that, in my opinion,  have no right or wrong answer. However when considering them, there are a few things you do need to keep in mind that will ultimately allow you to determine just how much is too much.
