I always thought that love meant a person feeling that thing that causes them to devote everything they can to protect someone. To always show them
how much they mean to them. To make sure that no matter what they were safe. When someone says "I love you" it indicated that they had a desire to
always embrace you and care for you.
Love can be heart breaking as much as heart warming.
But, is it really all this?
Love. When someone says "I love you" what is it they really mean? Do they mean that they accept you 100% and that you are someone they will always
feel strongly for?
Love. I think, these days, it is a selfishness. "I love you" means nothing more than "I have an emptiness in my existence, and you fill it.". When
two people find each other, and proclaim their love, are they really saying "No matter what, I will always care for you" or are they saying "No
matter what I need you." ?
Do people "IN LOVE" actually have this, or do they simply require some emotional fulfillment that they find in another? A selfishness that requires
someone else to be that for them?
Is saying "I love you" and having it reciprocated, just another way of saying "I need you" ? How many marriages have ended with one partner
expressing rage at being abandoned. As if to say "I NEED YOU, HOW DARE YOU TAKE WHAT I NEED AWAY?" ?
Love.. is it even real?
True love.. what is it, is it the absolute desire to care for someone no matter what, or is it the absolute selfish desire to have something you lack
within yourself filled by another? Selfishness. Is it making sure that no matter what they remain with you? Or is it simply a strong emotional
reaction to having a severe lack of something within yourself?
Unrequited love... This one is a conundrum. When one person can love another so selflessly that they do not even accept the others disinterest.
Obviously, love caters to the self, the one. in this case, they give themselves to someone who doesn't even care, but this shines down on the fact
that it is indeed a need to fulfill something lacking in themselves.
LOVE. Is it a shackle to our own self worth? "Without you I am nothing."?
I think we use the word love in a fruitless and frivolous manner.. "I love thai curry." -- the curry does not love you. "I love my wife." -- she
Love, is it nothing more than a way to feel better about ourselves? A method of keeping the things we inherently lack intact, by relying on others to
make us whole?
I can say I've loved.. but not now. She whom I loved never cared for me. I was seeking her, as she was a very good mate, to be complimentary to my
life. A part of it. With me.
Selfishness in it's true form.
She broke up with her ex and he was crazy mad about it... his "love" was nothing more than his own desire. She was his property "How dare you break
up with me!"
Love.. nothing more than a selfish desire to compliment ourselves, in almost every respect.
We should use the word desire instead. "I desire you" meaning I want you. Love, in this day and age, is meaningless.
I love ATS. ?
I say love is selfishness.. Desire is the reality.
I put this in rant because it is... in it's own way.
