Agree with the first statement, but not the second.

It's true that Love is not a competition. There are no winners or losers. Just honest people having emotions and expressing them.

But I do think there is "more than" and "less than" when it comes to love. I don't believe that all love is the same intensity and there are just different "kinds" of love. Even within the same kind of love, romantic for example, you can love people to different degrees. Although they're not supposed to admit it, even most parents have one child that they favour over the others. This is normal. We're not robots, and love is not an "all or nothing" thing.

It seems to me, it's safer to admit that you can love people more or less, and to prioritize your life and decisions on that basis.

someone else putting you in a box is entirely different
from getting into a box yourself.
