When you hear “love”, say something.
When you say “love”, feel something.
When you read “love” remember something.
When you find “love”- don’t you ever forget it.
The only person love means anything to, it seems are all without it; or believe themselves deprived of it, or that it was lost or missing. You do not need to explain love to the person who has it, and knows it.
Love is a fickle thing, we are told.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. What acts upon whim, is the fleeting feelings of acceptance and comfort. What we are comfortable with changes when we find out more about ourselves. Anything in love is comfortable, safe and secure. If you need to worry or more likely “think” you need to worry, then love still is an escaping emotion.
Emotion… Love likes this so much that it “blinds” you when you feel it!
Another common and entirely false condition; that flash of “blinding light” is yet again indicative of wants and whimsy. Your “eyes” will eventually become accustomed to “the light”. There is more, and so much more to “it” than how a person feels in a certain moment. Love won’t blind you, I promise; because if you do know love- it is the surest and most perceptive, clairvoyant feeling you have ever had. It is not the only thing you see, it’s the only thing you DON’T need to see. It will ground itself as the one true thing that doesn’t require looking into. Love isn’t blind, that’s a real condition and it’s called something other than love. If by blindness, are you suggesting that it does not see what a person looks like on the outside? Why does one need to be blind to cast aside these judgments anyway!? Such a foolish (and blinding) thing we have all been told or tell our “loved” ones for countless time. Think about your pet… Your dog didn’t need you to tell him you loved him, even though he knows and loves you unconditionally for being HIS “rock” of comfort. He is just thankful to know you- you feel that!? If love is blind, then we should just close our eyes and kiss a dog!
“I don’t love him/her anymore”
You never did….move on
“I just want to be loved!”
Love yourself first, I bet you already know the person who loves you
Love will certainly (from the curb) make us do crazy things. It will also drive us crazy, and everyone in the room! Your best of friends, your parents and all the other possible fuels of internal sanity that drive our motivations to protect and please our love are compounding on your ability to FEEL it. Is my BFF going to sleep with my boyfriend / girlfriend / husband / wife? Is my family going to hate him/her? Am I pretty/handsome enough? Where are you going to find yourself the next time insecurity poses as crazy? If you felt the love for something/someone AND felt it back, you wouldn’t go crazy if these questions were actually answered. True love answers the questions before they are asked. You’re not crazy, you’re in love!
Another seemingly “busted” quote of antiquity we have here!
“Is it crazy to love a person I can’t be with”
If it feels bad or wrong, it is not love you’re feeling. Choose another word, there are many.
“Does love really last forever?”
Will you? If yes, then yes, eternity….you can assume the latter.
There is so much misconception and folly when we “love”.
Do not lie to yourself with masked feelings or desperation. Do not lie to love itself; do not lead love on. Feel it often and regardless of what YOU think it means, because it might mean something else to those we love. Try not to believe you know your love as well- It is as captivated as you are. When you love a person, you need to understand that is what you love- a person; Just like you, who is capable of the very same things on the fields of emotions. Love is yours and it is for you, and you have it even before you find it; it has been with you in every single letter, and every single word you are reading. It found you in the womb and will never leave your side; even when you are alone or lonely (they are two different words for a reason).
Love also doesn’t shrink or grow; whether you have had love for five minutes or fifty years, it stays the same *fuzzy* feeling the whole ride. It never leaves you; it is in life as powerful as it is in death of flesh. The love has not died with them; it is in you and what it meant to feel it. Sadness and sorrow will always loom about the air above “love”. They are emotions too, and they will most certainly help you find and feel the love, if your “garden of emotions” is fed and watered. Do not feed love above sorrow or you may forget what love is and need to start all over again.
Your love is not dead, how foolish you are to think we are its match- love is not mortal.
Let’s keep talkin’ ‘bout love….even when you’re finished reading.
When we talk about love, let’s do it from experience but never forget what it means to the person (or pet) that loves US!
FF loves you because he knows what it means…
