“The greatest happiness in life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.”
The story of love in our life is a rather interesting one. When we’re not in love, we often feel and confess, to ourselves in secret, that love is the only thing that is missing in our life. However, when we get the love we’ve been longing for so long, we despise it, ridicule it, almost as if the feeling is strangulating us. All of us have felt this way at some point in time in our lives.
We’re looking at the reasons why most people tend to fall out of love in life.
Love makes us vulnerable. We might be strong, confident and financially independent. However, there is something about love that makes us vulnerable and too easy to break on the inside. We just do not accept the change in our personality and repel love. However, there is a positive side to being vulnerable. When we’re faced with real challenges in life and do not have a solution, we know who to fall back on. It’s easy to identify that person.
Love brings up past heartbreaks. Often, people find love and then are not keen on pursuing it because of the outcome of their previous relationships. Do not make the mistake of allowing the past to stand in the way if your future. Some bad things might have happened in life and that does not mean that you love faith in love. Do you stop walking when you trip once or twice?
Passion is another name for love. When we are truly in love, we feel all the emotions very passionately. We laugh with all our heart and we cry our eyes out. We get so angry with the person we love that we are angry with ourselves and we regret so much that we never try again. To find the balance in our life again, we stay away from love. What we’re forgetting here is that this is what we are meant to be. If love teaches you to be passionate about your work, why not? If nothing else, love is only making us stand up for the things we care about.
Last of all, sometimes, the love is not reciprocated. Ask yourself, was love supposed to be so selfish that you’ll only love if you get love in return. If you love with conditions, that is not true love. Selfless love is beautiful.
Do not run away from the most beautiful feeling in the world. It is love that binds us, completes us. It is love that lets us be.
