What is Love?!

Yes. I stole the title from Haddaway and I'm stealing the content of this posting from someone else.

I stumbled on a friend's blog/blog posting and thought it was really intense and worth sharing (not really sure how ethical that is, but hey, it's the internet -- everything's public domain!). Seems like he has an aversion toward capital letters, but whatever, don't let that distract you from the message. Have a read and hopefully you'll find it as thought-provoking as I did. I basically straight up 'cut and pasted' it how it was written (ahem... typos and all).

"i always knew what love was.. i always knew its meaning.. but lately i havent been liking the way the heart acts..for some reason when u love someone, you cant take your mind off of them, you cant stop feeling for them, you cant stop breathing their name, feeling the passion inside you that is love. its something that takes you over.. and u cant stop it because the heart acts in such mysterious ways. my biggest issue with love is when you cant have it from someone you love. alot of the time.. we cant get what we want in life, and it is a terrible thing to deal with. love brings happiness, but moreover it brings tears. the essence of knowing we cant have something we strive to have.. is a big dissapointment in life and its not even nice to have to deal with.. its bad enough we have to deal with diminishing friendships, shade, and arrogent people anyway, i dont think love should be this hard. i dont usually cry over love unless its serious. i feel that if you show someone you love them and you try your best to prove it to them, that they should be somewhat receptive unless they are just totally turned off by you, which is okay, but i mean dont give it the total 'no'. sometimes in life we have to take chances, sometimes with risks or consequences, to actually make life worth living. thats all i ask.. all i ask is to take a chance on love sometimes cause you never know where that chance will lead you. who knows.. maybe it could be the best thing you've ever had, try not to be a pessimist and believe that its gonna end up bad and terrible. give things a chance in life, otherwise love will never come your way.

i hope that in this some of you see a bit of wisedom about love and actually give it a chance.. i know deep in my heart that there is love inside everyone and if you just take the time to express it.. maybe you'd feel a little better inside."

  • sounds like this friend is/was in love with someone he/she can't have.

    love comes in many shapes, shades and sizes but it should never be a possesion. Love is free! Free to give and free to receive. Like Cher says in her classic "We All Sleep Alone"

    "Nobody, nowhere holds the key to your heart
    When loves a possession it'll tear you apart
    You may have lovers wherever you roam
    But sooner or later
    We all sleep alone"

    and in the words of that other crack-head

    "Because the greatest love of all
    Is happening to me
    I found the greatest love of all
    Inside of me
    The greatest love of all
    Is easy to achieve
    Learning to love yourself
    It is the greatest love of all"

  • Uhh yeah, Whitney found the "greatest love" inside her because she smoked it into her system. But crack didn't love her back :(

    I don't know what happened to him or when it all happened, but my heart bleeds for him cuz he's so adorable. Naturally, if he weren't adorable I'd just tell him to "walk it off" because I'm a good person like that. But when it's done bleeding, my heart will turn back into stone, because that's how it do.
