Love hurts.

Love stinks.

Love sucks.

…No, it doesn’t.

Being betrayed, cheated on, lied to, broken up with, thinking someone is different than they are – those things all suck. Love, does not.

Our generation has a considerably difficult time finding love. Many times they find a hookup at a club that lasts for a few dates, or maybe meet someone on Facebook who says all the right things but ends up turning out to be “like all the rest.” This prompts the natural reaction of blaming the pain on love.

But, on the contrary – love is one of the strongest driving forces for humanity. We pursue it and crave it from family, friends, and significant others. This is not because it hurts. This is because it lifts us up and makes us feel invincible. Like we want to be the best versions of ourselves.

Do not confuse love with betrayal or being hurt. That’s the end of a temporary infatuation that was masquerading as love.

Minimize the pain you feel by not giving away too much of yourself emotionally too soon. Love is not an overnight thing. It’s not a word to be thrown around with people you just met. It’s something that builds over time and bonds people together.

I’d hate to see this perception filter down into future generations and have them thinking that ‘love’ is a negative emotion or inherently hurtful, when it’s not.

Instead of saying “screw love” people should be saying: “Screw the people who made me feel that way.”

    “– love is one of the strongest driving forces for humanity.”

    Well said. Without love the brain will atrophy. Love wires the brain. Nice post.

    Been betrayed and cheated on. People who knows, wonders why I stay. Why I allowing mysmyself to be emotionally abused. I’m not. I forgave but I didn’t forget. Why we stayed together and working it out? Its beyond the level of love. Love means different things to different people.
    Coincidentally, this article was written on my birthday.
