What Is Love?


Recently I've wondered about love and what it really means to tell someone that you love them. Realistically speaking, many relationships end and both partners move on to meet someone else, but when do you stop loving one person to love another one? On the other side of the coin, did you really love the previous person if you can stop loving them?

My problem has always been cutting people out of my life. If I'm being honest, there's no person I've ever been able to cut out of my life completely; I still care , and even love some people who won't speak to me now. I often wonder that if they won't be a part of my life in some small way, did they ever love me to begin with?

Maybe I'm thinking too much about this (which is another problem I have), but what are your thoughts? I'd love to hear other people's opinion on this.

Hugs and poops,

Nichole

  1. Love is complicated, and there are different types. Some people can love more than one person romantically at the same time, that's why polyamorous relationships exist.

    I personally have loved people on some level and will never talk to them again. I don't speak to most of my ex's, and that's okay. If I saw them in the street I would say hi to most of them, and I hope they are happy wherever they are. As for platonic love, you can love someone and not speak with them also. I prefer to keep people in my life that I love or have loved, but sometimes it's not the best thing for one or both of you. People grow apart, but that doesn't mean there wasn't love present. Sometimes friendships aren't healthy and can't continue, and that's okay too. It's sad, but only those people can decide what's best for them.

    It's sad when you lose friends, and I personally don't stop caring about people who were true friends, even if it was just for a little while. But I have also had friends that I needed space from, too.

  2. i read somewhere that love is giving another human being the ability to completely crush you and destroy your heart. and trusting them not to.
