Why is the journey toward love so hard? Why do we end up starting over again and again, 2 weeks, days, months or a year from now.
Why is knowing when it’s right so obscure?
Why isn’t it like a movie. These questions and many more I’m asked daily.
I honestly do not know the answer, but what I do know is the following:
In my 35 years of life and ten years of love I must say, the most disappointing TRUTH is Like, Love and everything in between isn’t a sweet fairytale.
But who said that anyway? Where did we get this misnomer about LIKE/LOVE?
If we recall popular love stories i.e., Romeo and Juliet, Lancelot and Guinevere, Tristan and Isolde, Orpheus and Euridice and countless others.
They all ended in tragedy. What does this mean?
The title of this post could imply that love is unpredictable, indeterminate, and contradictory.
But consider the following: love is the feeling, we the people are the following: unpredictable, indeterminate, and contradictory.
We the people, change our mind, actions, and behaviors according to, well whatever the hell we feel like, or shall I say we are slaves to our ego.
Consider why do I write these blogs, I could do a journal and keep all my musings to myself. Perhaps, I believe, I have something to say, do I really have something to say, well that would depend on YOU 🙂
Mostly, my ego tells me I have an opinion and maybe you care.
Why do we fall in out of love? Why do we fall in and out of like?
Our ego tells us that the next one will be better, there is more out there, someone cuter, smarter, someone that will understand you better. Our ego tells us all these things and from time to time and we believe it. Except there is usually someone on the other end of this dialogue that has no idea, what the heck happened. Why you stopped calling, caring, loving, liking.
I propose that love in and of itself is grand, we the people are the problem.
