people are only meant to be together for a short while on their path
through life. It does not mean they did not, and do not, love one
they didn't really fall out of love, maybe they just found it to hard
to be together.
read something very similar to this a few days or weeks ago... But I
don't know. Then I hear or read people asking what is love. Now that
sent my mind off on a tangent of wonder.
I began to wonder about love. There are many different kinds of love,
but they're all love. Or maybe different things we can love...
can see a new pair of shoes. They buy them with love in their hearts.
They love their new shoes. Those shoes get wore or maybe not, then
their stashed away in a closet and only looked on fondly from time to
all loved many things when we were children. As we grew, learned and
moved on through this life we changed. Many of the things we loved as
children were nearly forgotten as we aged. Some we can no longer
stand to have. For me... Many of the cereals I couldn't live without
as a child. I can no longer stand to even look at them today. Now
they taste like sugar flavored cardboard...
see a new car and they fall in love. In love with it's sleek designs.
In love with it's new car smell. A year or two later and they're back
on the lot looking for a new car to have an affair with.
love steaks. But many did love steaks and now are vegetarians and
swear to never eat meat again. There are many foods people say they
love and I'm sure they do. But in a moment they could grow tired of
them and change their minds.
love flowers. But flowers come and flowers go. It's just their nature
to not stick around. So I love them while they're here, but I also
know to let them go. Even though it breaks my heart they wither away
and are gone.
I know we have marriage vows that say till death do us part. I also
know that people feel that love is forever. But do we confuse
ourselves with hopeless romantic dreams? Is it possible that even a
romantic love can only be a temporary thing.
find the love of their life and are happy ever after, but some never
do. Some I have known, spent sixty or more years of their life alone
before finding someone to be with. (I swear I felt the earth shake
the day he told me he was getting married.)
it quite possible that as we live, learn and grow, that we change and
we change differently? It is a fact that we all see things
differently even though we see the same things. Now that would make
our learning experiences different. That would cause us to grow
differently. Possibly even to the point of growing apart...
it quite possible that we place to much on romantic love? Expecting
it to last forever when we know all things can change.
we as human beings ever accept that things change and even romantic
love can change? That maybe people just really do grow apart. Could
we as the human race ever accept that and learn to leave one another
with the good memories of what was and just move on?
accepted that when my wife left me with two children. I always looked
at her as a friend after that. I trusted that she and I still wanted
good for our children and we could talk about their wants and needs
and come to agreement. She dated and I dated. She spent time at my
home when my dates were there. We all got along just fine.
the thoughts of love and what love really is are plaguing my head.
I'm sort of lost with many curiosities about love and the
possibilities. It always lays festering in my mind when I see people
who are hurting from a lost love and it hurts my heart to see them so
you go through your day and it crosses your mind, consider if you
will coming back and leaving any comments that arise in your mind.
Maybe collectively we could at least find a path to understanding
this strange thing called love.
you leave, how about showing your love by joining the site. I'd love
to see your smiling faces there in the followers gadget. Heck I'd
even like it if you decide to use one of those icons instead of the
your friends and acquaintances about the goofy thinking guy with the
silly blog. They may get a smile or something to think about too.
