“When I say, “I love you,” it’s not because I want you or because I can’t have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I’ve seen your kindness and your strength. I’ve seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You’re a hell of a person.”
|—||Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, writer Joss Whedon|
This is totally how I feel about saying "I love you" to a person. Completely.
I always have to remind myself of this fact. Sometimes it is okay that the heart is higher than the head. In fact, sometimes it is best to not think about it but follow your heart. Take your brain with you - but don't always let it win.
