I began to recognize that love isn’t a battle. Love is instead those amazing moments of silence where someone loves you when you are literally your most unlovable self. It is when you look in the mirror and see a reflection of a person that makes you sick and sad, but who is standing beside you anyway. They love you when you cannot love yourself. So that battle you were fighting the whole time is really just against yourself. Which is why love wins. Love always wins because it has to because there is no where else to go.
