Finally, for once, now that I feel on top of the world with my health, I don’t feel the need to update this blog with “how I am doing and my progress”. There’s actually a couple things that have been happening to me and so I’ve decided to write about this topic: Love. The one thing that confuses the hell out of everyone. Am I right?
Okay so let me try to define falling in love as well as I can, so we know what we are talking about. One person finds himself/herself excited and preoccupied with someone else and possibly desires touching that person and being with that person as much as possible. That strong physical attraction usually includes sexual feelings (not all the time though). There is a frequent desire to share thoughts and experiences, even trivial experiences. It is a headlong, pleasurable feeling that, everyone seems to agree, sort of fogs up our judgment so that the loved person is not seen clearly. The rest of life fades a little behind this dramatic daydream. “Love is blind”, right? It’s as if there is some magnetic attraction to the other person that transcends rational thought. It’s so powerful that, like other powerful feelings, such as grief, it seems to the affected person that it will last forever. It’s basically the sort of thing people write songs about.
Now I have dealt with my handful of experiences where I thought I was in love. I feel that most of those were just crushes. Lust. Wanting to feel accepted. Wanting to feel… well, loved!
For the most part, I think a lot of young individuals don’t really understand the concept of love. I mean, even I cant fully comprehend it.
Regardless, if someone is in love or lusting for someone, the thought in their head is that they “love” the other person. It’s a universal feeling but in a way everyone feels it differently.
So if love is this amazing thing that everyone searches for and usually is the segue to a relationship, why do so many relationships and marriages fail nowadays?
Honestly, I have yet to find the answer to that question. I myself am in this whirlwind of complicated feelings with someone and have absolutely no clue how to fix what’s going on.
SO. To my fellow bloggers, readers, internet surfers: I would like for you to help me and tell me your thoughts on why it is that relationships/marriages fail nowadays. Is there one common factor or does it depend on the couple? Is it because of this day in age that we live in or do you think that people way back then still had the same relationship issues that we have today? I’d like to get a couple responses and hear from you all.
Thank you for reading. Till next time!
