Love me, love me not.

When love is in your head but not in your life, or in your life but not in your head. 

Why does love have to be so complicated? Is it underestimated or overrated? Do we really understand love? Is it a sin to talk about love at my age; is there any age for it? 

Love is a beautiful gift, packed in a box with layers of beautiful wrappers, ribbons and glitters, and we open it like a small amused child filled with excitement; amazed with every layer of glittering wrapper, adrenaline rushing through with every torn wrapper, to see what would be inside the box and alas, we feel disappointed to find nothing but an empty ordinary box.

Either we fail to understand love or expect too much out of it, or maybe we over-think about it. The meaning or intensity of love changes with different relationships. Love with parents, children, friends or your pets, I think it stays there in the bottom of your heart, lays low at times but never goes away. 

But the love between two lovers or husband and wife is complicated. Very passionate and equally fragile. You completely put your trust in it, yet doubts lingers around. Sometimes you want to breathe every single breath together and other times you seek space. The conflict of, whether or whether not, or may be – may be not is endless.

Why does a beautiful couple fight even though it kills them inside? Even when they are on same page they fight, these fights make them go through guilt, regret, hell…and what not.

And what about the urge to be with someone better, well this sometimes makes me laugh. What is that better, one seeks?

Sometime I wonder, why this particular relationship is so hot, to be broken by one hit.

 The reason could be that there is a choice to breakup, to leave or to quit. What if this choice is granted on all relationships, just thinking of it gives me chills, it would be chaos, everybody quitting on everyone, be it parents or children, uncle’s, cousins or even pets.

No two people think same, there is no point looking for something better because it could be an endless search. (Of course if it is a hopelessly pathetic situation, one needs to get out) You will meet thousands of people yet you will never be satisfied. 

Don’t rush, enjoy every single moment of unwrapping the gift, I am sure there is more than just glitter on it.

Above said things are just my thoughts, 

I am no expert in this business of love. It’s just that I love LOVE. 

And I am still learning.

  1. I like your expression “It will be chaos, everybody quitting on everyone, be it parents or children…” But love is tenacious and it is a good thing, especially if you allow God’s love to fill your heart.

    Love is simple, it is about giving, seeking the interest of the beloved. It is selfishness that makes love appear sour and complicated.
