Love sucks and other great ideas! When I talk to some people they talk about love like it’s the worst thing that ever happened to them and it probably is.
When people come away from love with such a bad attitude about love then all I can say is, they don’t understand love. I have interviewed hundreds of people and couples about love: the good, the bad and the ugly.
I have interviewed people who lost the love of their life to death and they still talk about love with magic on their tongues. I have talked to people who lost the love of their life because something went wrong in their relationship and they still talk about love with delight. And I have talked to people who have lost the love of someone they loved because something went wrong and all they can do is talk badly about their partner or badly about love and how love sucks. They talk about how it can’t be trusted, and the pain of promises made and the promises broken.
What we find is that love is love. That’s all. Love is love and has nothing whatsoever to do with how you were treated, what happened to you or how you feel. The fact that something happened to end the love someone felt towards you is no ones fault. There is no blame. There is no fault. There is only an end to that relationship.
What always surprises me is that some people will always blame someone else for losing that love or falling out of love or lying to them about being in love.
What always surprises me is that some people need to blame someone for love ending. Instead of reveling in the love that they have felt, instead of delighting in the memories they enjoy they instead need to blame and hurt and hold onto the pain that they feel when it ends.
Love will always end in life. For some of us we will love until we die. But when someone dies the physical love they shared with another “dies” also. And the person being loved may never feel that love again except in mental or emotional way. And we seem to understand that.
But when someone else falls out of love with us many of us never understand. Never forgive. Never get over it.
Sad for those who hold onto their pain. Sad that they have the opportunity to love again but because of their own inability to forgive they may never truly share love with someone else again.
For LOVE is a shared emotion when it is between people who are looking for that loving connection. And when one is not complete because they have not forgiven a past failure in love then they are not whole or complete enough to be able to share their broken love with anyone else.
Yes, they might try and you may even be the recipient of this broken love and it will never be complete. It will never fill the void that they have left in their own hearts no matter how much love you offer them.
So when you look to fall in love make sure that it is with someone who is complete. Who has forgiven all past relationships, broken promises and failed loves.
Time can be a great healer but your ability to forgive your old lover as well as forgive yourself are the true keys to finding a new and improved love of your life.
