No truer words ever were said.
Earlier this evening I watched a few minutes of a movie and three sentences the speaker said stuck; "love is not a constant high... Love is complex. Sometimes love is simple".
So "love is not a constant high" resonated with me and I strongly agree. But who wouldn't? Is there any adult that thinks or expects it to be? I don't think so. I don't know that statement to be factual, it just imagine it to be. I don't know that it is because I've never been "privileged" to love and/or be loved long enough to experience its highs and lows.
No not me, not I.
Oh how I would love to tell you about love and my experiences. I know it seems like I share a lot but in actual truth I share nothing. And I itch to share! Unfortunately circumstances restrict me.
But you, you can tell me. What has your experience with love been? When you think about LOVE what pops up in your head? How much happiness has love brought you? How much sadness? How many peels of laughter and how many tears? Has love been kind to you, or simply brutal? Has love healed you, has it hurt you? What's your love story?
An anonymous commenter recently posted on how her boo broke it to her that it didn't smell too fresh down south, how he told her kindly and went further to show unconditional love. How they went together to the clinic and how he stood by her. And now they're presently engaged and planning their wedding. That comment made me warm all over. I got all mushy and emotional.... Love.
Love. One of our blog readers told me a while ago how a failed relationship landed her in therapy for months. I couldn't even begin to imagine how broken she must have been. I on the other hand am so used to having my heart tossed and smashed against glass walls that it's become a case of "oh, hello pain my loyal friend".
I'm just trying to be as real with you as possible. I know that while some of you might want to Awww and reach out to me, some will smirk and laugh and stick their tongues out. Neither is the desired intention. Either one makes no difference to me. I just want to share with you so that you can in turn share with me, and others.
I find love a very intriguing topic. We're all very different people and we've all had very different experiences. So what's your love story? How is love treating you presently? And for the married folk, are you married to your "one true love"? (No, I don't mean "The One" or soul-mate. I mean, the only person in the world you love more than anyone else, the only person on earth you will gladly spend the rest of your life with, the only person you can picture yourself with...).
Silly or strange as it might sound, it would be fantastic to hear it. So, do talk to me.
Tell me about your experiences with love; the complexities, the highs and lows, the past, present and the future as you hope it would be.
