1. You won’t always know The One when you meet them.
Taking the time to fall in love with someone doesn’t make you love them any less. Love is about growing with someone, getting to know them and yourself. It’s about becoming your own people and respecting each other for it.
2. But you might.
Some people fall in love at first sight, some people do it slowly, but what matters is keeping the commitment once you’ve made it.
3. Platonic love is real.
The nonexistent love triangle that launched a thousand shipping wars proves it. Harry and Hermione were great friends without a hint or interest in romance. They loved each other, they were family, and it was beautiful. A strong, truly platonic friendship is hard to find, but ones built on mutual respect, trust, and admiration are possible.
