“But love changes everything.”
Love changes people. Probably more than hate does. When you’re in love you don’t wanna be practical or smart… you just wanna be stupid, but together. Stupid together. You wanna do crazy things, take risks, but together. Everything you wanna do, you wanna do it with them.
When you’re in love, you’re not just in love. You get obsessed. It becomes a ride or die situation. When you’re in love, you go insane and yet the only thing keeping you sane is the person you love.
Love is a paradox. Perfectly described as pain and pleasure. When you love someone, the pain is inevitable. Because if you don’t care for a person, their actions won’t matter to you either. But when you’re in love, you’re fragile yet so strong at the same time. You want to give up and fall in their arms and just cry as much as you can. But you also want to protect them. You stand stronger than ever to protect them.
Love. It’s a funny word. Funnier feeling though. You smile for no reason but you also cry for no reason. Sometimes you hate the fact that you’re in love because if you’re in love, you can’t run away from the pain.
Pain. It’s a necessary feeling. It’s an ingredient that creates love. One of the most important ingredients. So when you’re in love you don’t just feel pain, you give it too. As I said, it’s inevitable.
While love is considered a tonic for some, it’s also toxic for some. Another ingredient… a balanced mix of poison and holy water.
When someone asks you, if you regret falling in love because of how much pain you had to go through, you still find yourself saying no. You don’t regret loving, no matter how much it broke you. It’s a paradox. It also made you stronger. It wounded you… but when a wound heals it only leaves a scar. A reminder, an explanation of who you are and how you’ve come this far.
Love does change everything. It makes your life worth something. You don’t just live for yourself, you live for them too. When you fall in love, you live to love and not love to live.
Love changes everything.
