The “L” word

In the words of Ghandi, “A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave”. Love is like a never ending rollercoaster, either you feel like you’re at an ultimate high or you feel like you’ve hit rock bottom. It is something unexplainable, undefinable, and unexpected. When you fall in love, it’s like that first spoonful of cookie dough ice-cream you’ve long waited and craved for, but now it’s finally time to indulge. Love makes you want to try new things and step outside of your comfort zone. Love is when you start using each other’s slang, and laughing at each other’s jokes, no matter how corny they are. Love is having moments where you look at each other and say nothing, but nothing means everything because even the silence is a strong, deep, mutual, connection. Love is saying “I’m sorry”, even when you’ve done nothing wrong because the argument isn’t worth losing the person. Unfortunately, love is also the same thing that will make you feel stupid, make you feel worthless, hurt, and leave you confused. Love will cause you to overthink things and have many sleepless nights. Love is like a drug, it will sometimes have you thinking unrealistically and will cloud your better judgement. Love is pain, and the first cut is definitely the deepest. However, love is also understanding, communication, patience, and kindness. Love can be healed, but only if two people desire to fix it. Love is sometimes one sided and that’s where it gets tricky. Falling in love is easy but falling out is hard, so take your time and pay attention to details because true love will find you.
