I love you because

I love you because you are you

I love you

because

I love you 

I am intrigued by this photograph.  I let myself wonder, what does it mean?  "I love you because"  Because why?  Because?  Does there need to be a "because" when it comes to love?  No.  No there does not need to be a because.  For many of us, it has been reinforced that we will be loved if we do this (insert task or behavior here.)  I want to turn that thinking on it's head.  I am here to remind you that you are loved.  You are loved and have immense value, separate of your actions or behaviors.  You are loved just because.  Not because of something.  There don't need to be reasons.  There can just be...love.
