Its not you, its me. I can’t love you the way you want me to.
Could this be butterflies? Is it a zoo? What’s with the flusters in my belly?
That sensation you feel is common sense leaving your body. (I kid)
Am I in love? Love or infatuation? Is this a crush or plain lust?
Humanity and religion suggests that we “love” one another. I’ve come to realize that there are different kinds of love.
The difference is in the depth of the emotions.
There’s so much love to give. Love to friends, love to family, love to “neighbours” and so on…
Now, when it comes to love between two individuals, it can get a bit complicated if we are unable to sort out our emotions.
There’s the “I love you“, “I’m in love with you“, “infatuation” and ofcourse “lust” (this isn’t love but is often misunderstood for it). As the saying goes… “The flesh is weak“. 😉
At certain stages, we want different things. As good as it may be to feel ” sexy” and “wanted“, we eventually outgrow it and want more from a partner/relationship.
You’d come to realize that you are so much more than your body parts and that’s when lust fades.
I’m gonna be cliche here for a minute and tell you that i’ve been hurt before but I’m grateful for it because it showed me that God’s blessings are not just in what he gives but also in what he takes away.
You may wonder why it had to happen in the first place. The lesson is in the experience and growth you stand to gain.
The trick about living contentedly is in analyzing situations. Everything truly happens for a reason. There is strength to acquire from pain.
When you come to the end of the road, Let go. It is natural to want to hold on to fantasies but let it go. Not everything is worth fighting for.
When “in love“, you must to be cautious not to lose yourself to your partner/relationship.
Follow your heart but take your brain with you.
I’ve never liked “cheesy” gestures. Do not spoon feed me. I can eat on my own. Nevertheless, I do believe in love and genuine partnership.
I will not compromise my respect for your love. You can keep your love, I will keep my respect -Amit Kalantri.
Would you still love me when I’m no longer young & beautiful?
You can’t feel anything that your heart doesn’t want to feel. Sometimes we confuse being in love with the idea of wanting to be in love. The difference is in the depth of our feelings.
Eventually, you’d find your “missing rib” or at least someone who’d sincerely love you (flaws & all). Do not bother asking why it had to take so long to find you. The key is in the wisdom gained during the wait.
It’ll be worth the wait. Hopefully. 💏
