Well, love is a great many things … Plato called it a “serious mental disease” … Shakespeare said that “love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind” … Victor Hugo said “the supreme happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves – say rather, loved in spite of ourselves” … Paulo Coelho wrote that “love is not a habit, a commitment, or a debt. It isn’t what romantic songs tell us it is – love simply is” … but what is love really? Love is what you make it. Love is what you want it to be. It can be great and it can horrible. Which it is, is up to you. You think I’m crazy for saying that? Nope … just honest and realistic. How many times do we get ourselves into these crazy love situations where we end up not only hurt but also alone?
Love makes us do stupid things … but is it all worth it? Does that momentary feeling of euphoria make up for the countless days of hardship and misery? When I think back on all the times I have been in love, I always ended up broken-hearted. Sometimes I wonder if it was worth the pain I felt. Isn’t it just easier to be alone? Sometimes I think that yes it is … but I don’t want to be alone. I like being with someone, I like loving and being loved. I have so much good to give someone who truly loves me. For those I love I am truly a giver. I am supportive, positive, caring, passionate, someone who takes care of the one she loves … I make my man feel like a king, but only if he lets me. I’ve always got his back – during the good, the bad and the ugly. But, I cannot do it for those who don’t want it. Sometimes no matter how much you give if someone doesn’t want your love you can’t force it. Love knows no boundaries or distances. It simply is what it is.
I think this sums it up very well: “Love hurts sometimes, but it is worth it. As humans, we crave human touch and love. In fact, babies can die without it. The pain love can sometimes cause is worth it for the experience of being loved and in love. Loving someone sets you up to hurt if you lose them, but if you don’t love for fear of loss, what’s the point of living?” (WikiAnswers)
So is love worth the trouble … I say yes!
