I have to say this describes Jason and myself perfectly. We have grown together, grown apart and then back together again, but through it all we were so intertwined we couldn't imagine a life without the other.
“Being “in love” is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so intertwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what Love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second or minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining them kissing every part of your body. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.” In time your roots will grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from your branches you will find that you are one tree and not two.” But remember this you can either continue to grow together over time or you can grow apart, that is up to you. You can grow apart and then come back together, again that is up to you. But only you can stay together or grow apart. One thing is for sure, love will not survive without you continuing to help it grow, you must work at it every day of your life if you want love to stay. – Greek Philosophy
