At what point do you realize you love somebody in your life? I'm not talking about falling in love, but the family or closeness kind of love that you feel for a new family member or a best friend.
I feel like I want to tell people I love them a lot. Maybe that's because my heart is so open and full, I have a lot to give in that department (I owe that to my Gma).
I have friends whom I've had forever and I truly love them - I know this to be true. Not sure at what point I crossed over into that world of love, but my feelings for them are so deep and true.
Then you have people who come into your life through family measures - maybe you have a relative who begins dating someone and ends up getting married to that person, when do you form a love with that person, again, not being in love with them, but just having love for them?
How do you know what love is when it's not being in love?
