It’s strange how one person’s outlook on love can be so radically different from another’s.
What is love precisely?
Is the definition of love that appears when you type the word into Google what love truly is? “An intense feeling of affection.” Love is made up of tears, betrayals, and long sleepless nights of fighting. Love makes you vulnerable. Your heart is bitterly cracked open little by little, only to end up completely split apart. Love surfaces all insecurities of the human soul. There’s no holding back, no thought before action. You’re oblivious to everything, but nothing. The human brain shuts off sinfulness and replaces it with truth.
Don’t get me wrong, love can tear you to shreds, but it is also causes your mind to flourish. It conquers all, as cheesy as it sounds. Hormone and estrogen levels rise. Thoughts all fade into one. The thrill and pleasure of the feeling of being in love is indescribable and uncontainable. There’s no particular advice to give once someone has fallen into the black hole of love, except that there is no turning back. Love makes you grow, yet become indomitable. It’s a bone shaking ride, full of obstacles to overcome, and unsureness of the future but all that matters while you’re strapped in is the “here and now”. Love is incurable, there is no second guessing.
