The singer of the band known as Nazareth wasn't lying when they came out on stage singing about how much love hurts. I don't believe love is merely an emotion. It generates and controls them. It's a force beyond even ourselves. I have done some crazy, stupid things out of love. I remember doing them, I was conscious. But I couldn't tell you why, other than "love made me do it." It hurts us, makes us cry, makes us stupid, and has us act out violently, sometimes fatal ways. Yet, we want it so bad when we don't have it. Love is a paradox. It can drive you to harm yourself or others, but then it can make you the happiest, most compassionate, and loving person on the planet. It's a force of nature than you can run from for a while, but it will find you. Always when you least expect it, too. Other forces of nature, such as tornadoes or hurricanes, are governed, however, by the laws of earth. For a simple example, rain falls due to gravity. Love doesn't. Love obeys no one. Nothing. Like a sudden bolt of lightning, love will strike— and seldom at the right time.
Last year, I watched as one of my best friends was applying some last-minute, finishing touches of makeup. She looked stunningly gorgeous; like a mythological Greek goddess. I couldn't help but stare at her through the bright mirror. Then she locked eyes with me. It was right then that I realized I was head over heels in love with her. It didn't hit me the day before. Not last month. Not when she was made a fiancé. Not when she had met her future husband. Love struck me on the day she was getting married… to someone else.
I watched as she held his hands and said her vowels. I watched as they kissed. I watched as she smiled. I watched…. and died.
He is a friend of mine, her husband. A nice guy. Im happy for both of them. It just sucks. Love sucks.
If you let “love “ control you out of the need you will never find a degree of happiness- as with all emotions it vital that you learn how to understand yourself- lt we blame all our feelings without raging responsibility for them we can have ourselves to blame- not the emotions 🦋thank you for sharing 🦋🦋
