Relationships & Life
I was having a conversation with a friend the other day, she told me she does not believe in love anymore. After being hurt excruciatingly bad more than once by her boyfriends, she confirmed she is now doubting love. After our conversation I thought about what she said for awhile. I mean really, how is a woman or anyone else for that matter supposed to continue to believe in a committed and honest relationship when there are so many men that tend to not take their vows or dedicated partnerships seriously? When you finally, after being hurt once, twice, or three times open your locked heart only for it to be slaughtered once again, how does one still believe in love?? I've been hurt as well and now recognize we go through relationships to grow and learn. It may be to learn what we don't want or it may be so you can get the "not to do" list in love. I listen to others tell their stories and feel such empathy. It's not always fair in love and war...yeah whatever. Lets be real life isn't fair, and feeling heartbreak at some point in any relationship is quite inevitable. The question is how do we deal? How do you trust in such a powerful energy source? I don't believe in rocket science answers, I think the best thing to do is.....drumroll please....JUST DO IT! I'm not promoting Nike, I'm promoting risk taking. Sure you can take it slow, but know in order to find real love, you have to somehow find it in the depths of yourself, and know that it is attainable. Not easy, but attainable. Struggle with great purpose and the pure intention of care in love is ok. It is what makes love worth living for. To have a bond with another so deep it can never be broken, to love unconditionally through good and bad is what we all need. To be loved and accepted no matter what is what strengthens our character. So take the plunge! I believe in love...I also know its worth fighting for.
