Love is not just about finding the right person, but creating right relationship and one of the most essential building blocks for a strong relationship is understanding. As Paul Tournier pointed out, “Between love and understanding there is a very close link…He who loves understands, and he who understands loves. One who feels understood feels loved, and one who feels loved feels sure of being understood.”
Understanding and acceptance are the essence of love. If you cannot understand and accept, you cannot truly love another person.
