The Trouble with Love
The trouble with love is:
- It makes you vulnerable
- It clouds your judgement
- It can't be stopped
- It's not always rational
- It has the power to eat you up
- It can turn your whole life upside down
I feel that the list above completely encompasses how I'm feeling right now, however putting my positive hat on I know that all things happen for a reason. You can't always choose who you fall in love with, you can't put a guard around your heart forever and sometimes you have to leave yourself open to hurt as being hurt is all part of growth ( please don't go out hurting yourselves on purpose though!).
Whilst love can be troublesome, it's ultimately what makes the world goes round. In life you have to take the positive with the negative. For now a more positive definition of love to end with:
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."
