Love. If you think about it, love is a real deep topic for a lot of people, most people in fact. Near enough every song made nowadays is based on some sort of friendship/relationship, so it's advertised to the world, whether it be about a new, healthy relationship, or about a tear up, or heartbreak. I just thought I'd do something a little different and share my views with you, but just to get you prepared, this post is going to be a very long post.
What is love to you? Are you one of the many people who think that love is confusing, and think that it causes you to be under the illusion that you're in love, when really it's just yourself trying to find a new point of excitement in your life? Or, are you one of the many people who believe that love only exists in films and stories, and fairy tales? Or, are you one of the many, many people who believe that we are all too young to fully understand what love really is, and one of the many people who think that we can't say that we're in love, until we're much older..
Personally, I think that love is one of the most incredible, most beautiful things that anyone could ever find in life. I'm not quite sure to be honest, most of you probably think that I'm still too young to fully understand everything about love, but let me at least tell you what I think about it.
I speak for a fair few when I say that we all know that when you love someone, or when you are in love with someone, it makes you do a lot of crazy, bizarre things. You do a lot of things that you never even dreamed of doing before, you make sacrifices you never thought of sacrificing before, but then of course there is the part where you feel more pain than you have ever physically felt before. But, the best park about being in love, is that it makes you feel ever lasting happiness.Finding that someone that no matter how hard you try to fall, they will always be there to catch you, and pick you back up. And when you look at that someone, you know that they are everything you've ever wanted and everything you will ever need.
Love is when you feel like you're five years old again... this meaning ultimate happiness. You're smiling all the time, when you go to bed, and when you wake up again, and everything is just perfect, because you know that you have that one special person in your life that you have been so lucky to find.
A lot of people believe that falling in love, is like falling into a nest..
So, you fall into this nest, and you just sort of start to get comfortable there, you start to get used to it, and you get used to it's surroundings too, then after a while you get bored of staying in the same place, and doing the same thing all the time, so you basically just fall into another nest, and you start to fall deeper and deeper until you feel comfortable again, but you can't stay in the same place for too long, because you know that you're just going to get bored again, and the whole cycles just repeats itself again and again. But it's not that easy.
For me, falling in love is more like falling onto an eagles back rather than falling into a nest. You're flying on the back of this eagle, and it takes you to great heights, higher than you've ever been before, higher than you could have ever gotten to by yourself, and if for some reason this eagle disappears, it throws you off of its back, and whilst doing that you feel like you're throwing years of your life onto the floor. The impact hits you so hard, it leaves you with scars, that are going to stay there, I guess... forever. Sure, you may be able to fly on other birds backs, but nothing is ever going to take you higher until you find your way back onto your eagle's back. So even though it sounds crazy, I hope it makes sense when I say 'once you've found your eagle, hold on tight'.
Basically, don't waste your time in a relationship if it's not making you happy. I'm saying that if you and your boyfriend/girlfriend have had a fight and it's not making you happy, that you should just throw it all away, i'm not saying that at all, because every relationship has it's ups and downs, and it's perfectly normal to have problems in a relationship, that's why you work them out. If you believe that someone is worth it, and you know that they are worth it, then they are. To be honest with you, I think love is so much more than first impressions and physical appearances. Love is just when you know every single side of that person; you've seen their good side, their bad side, their angry side, their happy side... you have literally seen every side of them, you know all of their flaws, but you just see them as a person, and you love them no matter when. When you're with them, you just feel like everything is perfect, and everything is in it's right place, they make you feel like you have nothing to worry about in the world, You just feel lucky to have them, and you know that they feel lucky to have you too, and the both of you are just.. happy. I don't know how many times I've already said that but it is really important that you are happy.
You might not think that you are the prettiest person alive, or that you are the most amazing and most thoughtful person ever, but I can guarantee that there is somebody out there who does. When you've found that person, please, don't ever let them go. You need someone who will take you for who you are, without making any changes to yourself. You need someone who will be your best friend, who will be at the other end of the phone when you need them, or just to talk or have a laugh, or whatever it may be. You need someone who will love you, and make you happy.
There is someone out there for everyone, and I 100% honestly believe that. When you've found them, you will care for that person more than you care for yourself. They will be that someone who you will fall unconditionally in love with, in from which you love, not comes happily ever after, but starts a new forever.
