I hear this a lot… “All you need is love!”
Is love really THAT powerful that you can get through anything if all you had was it?
I question this a lot. Mainly… because either I have never been truly in love before, or because the other person in the relationship wasn’t really in love; regardless, this has never ever been what was all I needed. To me… love comes and goes. I grew up believing that blood (family/friends) is thicker than water (relationships). That there are lots of fish in the sea… so don’t dwell on just one fish. Same meaning: Dont hold your breath on one aspect of your life… you may never breathe again.
Life is about living… and to me… love sometimes holds you down from living, if that love isn’t genuine. Now… don’t get me wrong. I believe in the theory of love. I believe in what it stands for. But… it seems to never be enough to hold me through the bullshit that relationships (i’m in) go through. And… Yes… there is always bullshit…
I look at my past… and smile about all the beautiful ladies that have been in my life. All the wonderful relationships that were started… and then at all the misery that one went through to get past that relationship… thats right, I said smile. Why? Why not? Every event in my life is an opportunity to learn from it and make it better the next time. So rather I win or lose… it all evens up with me.
The truth? The truth will bite you in the ass when you are looking dead at the picture. The truth doesn’t need to hide… The truth is black and white. And the truth will ALWAYS come out. So if you or her/him doesn’t really love the other… that will become noticed sooner than later… at least… we hope sooner than later.
As I continue life and swim through this ocean… I will continue to take breaths, because the reality is, as much as each of us wants to be loved… someone of us will drown waiting around to long for it…
