I was talking to someone the other day about loving. He told me that when I love, I shouldn't give it my all; that I should never love 100%. He told me that he loves someone, but its only 90 - 95% and that he keeps the remaining to himself. This is so that when the person he loves leaves him, there would still be something left for him.
It baffled me.
I don't love like that. When I love, its always 100%. I cannot put a limit to how much I would love someone. I can't see myself going like, "okay, I will love you 57% only and you, 45% only." That's weird for me.
True, when my relationships end, it would really break me but then I am able to recover and come out a better person. I am always able to say that I gave it my all and that I have no regrets. I don't have any what if's in life especially when it comes to my relationships. That is how I prefer it to be.
How do you love? Do you love 100% or only 95%?
