I constantly think of somebody too and Im often :bnghd: Im nearly twice your age and I know I do 'love' her... but there is a difference between
real love, which isnt anything to do with how much we fancy someone and think of them and wana have sex with them and all that..
I dont know if Im alone with this thought but I think half the world dont even know what 'love' is.
First we have to understand that all humans operate out of 2 emotions only, once we real'eyes this it makes things easier, cause we no longer have to
be stuck wondering about ALL these so called 'different' feelings.
So the first emotion is Love, the other is Fear... when we dont know if its love or what love IS... learn to first recognize what love ISNT.. then
we know more about what love IS...
For example....... caring, loyalty, joy, gratitude, peace, humour, respect, admiration, selflessness, compassion, kindness, consideration, etc
etc....... I can go on for a while, but you can see where Im going and you can add more to that list... all that belongs under LOVE.
FEAR now.. hate, anger, worry, spitefulness, selfishness, manipulation, greed, loathing, jealousy, ............... need I continue?
I think everyone old enough will agree that what we often mistake as love is often plain old 'addiction'...
Even tho we may truly have 'love' for them (as we call it.. I think the real word for the love we have and give is 'compassion') we can still
operate out of fear without realising..
And yknow what, doesnt matter how old we get, we all fall down the same holes until we real'eyes what our emotions really are..
E-motion....... Energy in motion... leads us to get swept away.......
Anyway I know you understand..
I see you on my threads and you flagged me thanks,.. didnt know you was only 19. Glad to see young people on ATS.
As for your 'sort of a boss'..... hmmm....... Its probably not wise to go there even if you have a chance.. unless your going to leave your job
and get a bonus before you go!? hahaha...
Edit to add... Love for ourself is the only true love there is, cause everything reflects back on us, we are the ones left picking up the pieces and
all that... everything we do revolves around 'ME'...... thats why its important we arent so selfish and blind, cause we only know what we truly
had when its gone...
