Is Love Really Worth it

Is Love Really Worth it “Love doesn’t make the world go ‘round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” –Franklin P. Jones You can believe it or not. Only those who have experienced the kind of love I write about can know this to be true. So, is love worth it? There are all kinds of love to be sure but that love shared with passion between true lovers is the epitome and what people all strive to achieve.
