It starts off with butterflies in the stomach, a yearning for that person’s connection, a burning desire to be loved in return by that one person. White picket fences, puppies, and babies, it’s all planned out.
Love is never that easy, is it?
Then the realisation that they are not perfect. The truth is that they will hurt you like no other can, or possibly ever will. The tears, heartache, these emotions being the cause of many suicidal thoughts.
Love is blind they say, blind to the other persons’ faults. What they do not say is that these faults could be many. The truth is that if it hurts so much that it is self-destroying, you need to have the wisdom to walk away.
Richard Bach said: “If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they’re yours; if they don’t they never were”. Truer words have never been spoken.
There are times when it is worthwhile fighting for love but when fighting is all you seem to do, then walk away. Love is a two-way street, if you are one giving love and it is not reciprocated, then other person does not love or deserve you.
It is easy to say these three words to someone but beware it is a two-edged sword. If you misuse it, and it so easily is, it is sure to boomerang right back and smash you where it hurts the most.
Love is kind. It is timeless. Love is the essence of humanity. It is the need to see someone else grow and succeed, with or without you. It has the power to stop wars but also the tendency to start them. It is the first emotion between Mother and child. Pure, without any effort what so ever. It is the need to help another and the willingness of a Mother to die to protect her child. It is spread between species and nations.
This powerful emotion that every single person is capable of giving or receiving. Why not have true love?
There is no doubting when it is pure and right, you will know. You are wasting your energy and time if it is not. In that case, it is undoubtedly blocking you from the real deal if you stay in a one-sided love affair. It is one of the hardest things that you will ever need to do in your life, walk away. You can never make someone love you, so never stop believing that there is someone out there that is just for you!
Love – the reason to live.
