Loving & being in love. 

I love you.

I’m in love with you.

Those words have so much power to them. They have the power to break you or make you fall so helplessly in love. Taking a closer look though there is a slight difference between the two. 

Go back. Reread it again. 

I love you.

I love you is tossed around. For example,

  • I love reading.
  • I love running.
  • I love her smile.
  • I love his eyes.

I love you is used to describe the things that we love about someone or something. 

However, everything and everyone is constantly changing. For example,

  • Reading isn’t fun.
  • Running is tiring.
  • She got braces.
  • He got contacts.

Notice how I once loved these things but overtime things changed and so did my point of view on them. Life goes on though and I find new things to love. So loving someone or something is prone to change. It’s never a solid nor promising thing. 

I’m in love with you.

I’m in love with you holds something so powerful. It’s something so breathtakingly beautiful yet absolutely frightening. You are in love with the person that they are. 

  • Being in love isn’t a choice.
  • Being in love means you put your significant other first.
  • Being in love is forever. It’s promising.
  • Being in love is simply being happy because your significant other is happy.
  • Being in love is a constant stream of emotions.
  • Being in love is about how you make someone feel.
  • Being in love is about partnership.
  • Being in love is effortless.

When you are in love with someone losing them will tear you apart. They can’t be replaced. It will literally break your heart. 

There is a clear divide between the two little sentences. Both hold different meanings and if you can’t see it now, one day you will. 

I love you.

I’m in love with you.
