“If he really loved me he would have stayed.”
“If she really loved me she would change.”
“He said he loved me why did he hurt me?”
“She said she would always have my back why did she end up stabbing it?”
Ever asked yourself any of these questions? Some of them? All of them? I think at some point we all have been in a place of confusion and/or hurt due to this thing called love.
With certain people in our lives the love comes with expectations, and guarantees. Isn’t it funny how we tend to cut our friends and family a little more slack with the expectations and guarantees?
The guarantee they will never leave. The guarantee they will never truly hurt our feelings. The expectation they will always remain faithful. The guarantee that no matter what they will stick around to work things out. The expectation that they will never tragically let us down.
Most of the time, love has nothing to do with these unfortunate experiences.
It really can not be, about you.
The thing is,
It is not usually the love that betrays you-it is the person or belief in a guarantee made by them, or one you made up in your mind.
The only thing that love guarantees is…an experience.
With that said my point is, love. Always love. Live love, be love, and be brave in love. Because those times you feel like love let you down are the very times I write of. Remember, it is not usually the love that lets you down, and you miss out on so much when you hold on to things that have nothing to do with the purest form of the way you love others.
So what’s love got to do with it?
Sometimes everything, and other times…nothing at all.
