Alterations Needed

LOVE……What is love? The age old question right? I’m sure millions of people have posted about this on numerous pages and you probably have read millions of views and thoughts about it. Now I hate to rant, I hate to talk about inevitable topics like love because its so cliché. Everyone has a point of view and its been reiterated so many times. But I would like to give my take. The 2 big questions are, at least for me, is whether or not your love continue to get stronger the more you get to know someone or do you eventually chip away at it when things like trust, infidelity ,loyalty, respect all get violated. Now its easy to say that at the first sign of betrayal you leave. But that’s not what a relationship is about is it?  Aren’t you supposed to be strong enough to forgive your partner? Be a strong enough person to move on from certain thing? Of course, I don’t think love is that specific and a lot of times you cant control but isn’t possible to be settled into something less than the amount you had when you first fell in love? I like to think that eventually over time both parties come down to earth a little and settle at comfortable common ground. Love is different now right? Sure, love is love but is comfort confused for love or is a branch of it? I think it all boils down to things, “It works for us”, being thrown around by a couple. It “works’. I think its nearly impossible to love someone with the same passion 20,30, even 40 years down the road because I believe by that point you just learn to deal with each other. The whole idea just isn’t realistic to me. However, I do feel its possible to love the same person differently at different times. I think loves evolves into other forms of compassion. I think you can fall in love with the same person over and over again for different reasons but never feel the same love twice. Make sense?

  1. Big subject! Long time love can be a lot of work (sorting all the problems that come up etc. and eat away at it). Folks nowadays tend to want it too easy and quit when the first rosy glow wears off. Real love tends to be mixed with sacrifice, but can last a lifetime and only grow the deeper at each crisis. A lot depends on if you fight together to preserve it or against each other thus destroying it.
