Love does not look for the fastest way to do something. It looks for the best way. When you are loving someone, you are going out of your way for them. You do not need another reason beyond love. Love is worth doing because it is love.
Do not try to combine love with convenience. If you succeed in finding convenience, you may lose love in the process. Hold on to love, even if it means letting go of convenience. Love is the better of the two.
Do not try to love and then also to get whatever you can for yourself in the process. Focus on loving the best you can, and don't worry about also fitting in a way for you to get something out of it. If you succeed in loving, you will be much happier than if you fail in loving because you tried to also look out for yourself.
