Getting Love in check/ 26.04.11

Today was one of those random thoughts days when I was thinking about everything in the whole wide world! My mind wondered to questions about love and the main question I toyed with was: ‘Can you love someone too much?’. My knee jerk response was – Yes, well of course you can but then it mutates and is no longer called love. When you define any feeling as ‘too much’ it is an unhealthy emotion, something that needs to be brought in check. You see I believe that love in its purest form is a battle, a struggle, a war that rages between two people, and even within a person. Love is one of those strange things that causes you to enjoy being yourself, and hate yourself all at once. I remember when I first fell in love feeling like I was learning so much about myself, a felling of euphoria crept its way through my whole being. I felt like my sense of purpose was personified in this other being; I thought about things I never would have, did things I never would have and generally developed so much as a person that I cannot now look back in regret at the experience.

To me that’s a good experience of love. I have developed in mostly positive ways and am able to look back on the experience with a smile. How does your ‘love’ make you feel?
