Love is a powerful emotion. It can make and break people. Love can have many different colors and not everybody in love experiences the same emotions. For some, it can be the most blissful experience and for some it can be the most unpleasant thing in their lives.
It’s pretty difficult to understand how a single emotion can reveal itself in so many different ways. But it is also a fact that love is the only thing that is closest to perfection. Love can be strange and ordinary, heady and calm, good and bad. It can be the most beautiful thing to behold and has the power to bring two people together. Yet it is this very emotion that can become dark and ugly.
Love is the only flawless thing that humans can experience in the material world.
People associate love with happiness, fulfilment, and everything beautiful. True love for most people is a soothing experience that brings life to their dull and drab life.
There is also a different version of love that does not bring happiness to those involved. It brings darkness and grief. This love is between two people who can never be together. They can never have each other for life.
It is not the beginning of a beautiful story, but the end of what could have been. It can never blossom, never thrive. This love should either remain alive in the hearts unfulfilled or eventually dies.
We want to see love always leading to happiness, the lifelong union of two people. But, that does not happen many a times. Some lovers never get united, never are together. They are meant to part ways.
Two people deeply in love are sometimes cut off due to circumstance. Despite being soul mates they are forced to be apart and that is the irony of this kind of love. The worst part of this type of love is the inability to get over the feeling despite knowing there is no possibility of ever being together.
Those involved know very well they cannot make it happen because there are plenty of other factors that affect them. They would rather not be together than destroy everything else around them. It is a sad truth, and it does exist.
In real life love is very different from the love in fairytales and stories. Love is an emotion but you need so many more things to live. Love is not enough because life and its circumstances don’t let you live only on emotions. You are required to be rational while love tends to drive you in the opposite direction.
We hear contradictory things about love. While love is called irrational, it is also believed to be the strength behind successful relationships.
The actual fact is love alone cannot make things work. It may seem to drive things in the right direction for a while, but rationality demands more. One cannot help but be practical as sooner or later, irrational illusions vanish.
Reality of life demands us to weigh the pros and cons of anything that we come across in life. Even though you may want to drift with the flow of love, you can’t do it or you have to pay heavily for being impractical.
