I heard a great line from a documentary today: “Love is given, but respect and trust are earned.”

It’s easy to think that admiration is just love. But it’s also respect and trust, which are not guaranteed and cannot be achieved through shortcuts. Just because love is the biggest variable doesn’t mean it’s the only part of the equation. Love on its own is incomplete. So don’t think you can rely only on its power. True admiration requires more.
