95% vs 100%

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%?


  1. Funny nga ang 95% niya ha. Maybe what he really meant was for you not to forget to love yourself as well.

    Dear if you've got time, I tagged you here:

  2. I agree. Why put a limit on your love? In a way, your dooming yourself to failure.

  3. How can you compare love in percentages ? I wonder !


Hi! Let's all try to add more positivity in this world and adhere to the saying, "if you don't have anything nice to say, keep silent."

Showering you with unicorn poop so you'd always stay magical! Heart heart!
