And If I Ever Leave You

There is always one person you love who becomes that definition.
It usually happens retrospectively, but it happens eventually.
This is the person who unknowingly sets the template for what you will
always love about other people, even if some of these lovable qualities
are self-destructive and unreasonable. The person who defines your
understanding of love is not inherently different than anyone else;
they’re often just the person you happen to meet the first time
you really, really, want to love someone. But that person still wins.
They win, and you lose. Because for the rest of your life, they will control
how you feel about everyone else.
— Chuck Klosterman, Killing Yourself To Live

I shamelessly copied the above paragraph from lin’s blog because I believed  in the words I see here. Thanks lin for sharing it on your blog, brilliant writer there.
