You know I have to be silly at first. Love is silly. Or the good kind is. Love is a lot of things. Love can be on a scale from silly to down right painful. Its true. I have been on both ends of the spectrum with one person and it sucks. The love though that God intended for us though doesn’t include the pain that we feel. Thats how you know it wasn’t the love that God had intended for you. I guess thats the only way to find peace with it. There is pain in non romantic love. What about the loss of a loved one? Well aren’t we supposed to be happy they have moved on? And gotten out of this shithole a little bit sooner? What about the pain when you love someone who is making bad decisions? That is still good love. Although it hurts us to see them messing up. What isn’t good is loving someone who doesn’t love you back. Or loving someone who causes you pain. Emotionally or physically.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 New International Version (NIV)
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues,they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
That is the Christian God’s take on Love. And honestly it holds pretty true.
Everyone deserves a shot at love. Even those who have hurt us. Give all the love you can because one day, one day it will come back to you. I have to believe that. Its what keeps me loving the way that I do. I will love you for the soul that you are, faults and all. I will never abandon you, I will support you, I will always have your back, and you can always count on me to do anything in my power when you are having problems to fix them. I love with my whole heart and soul. And once I’ve loved you I always will, even if you hurt me. I still love my ex, and always will. Its a different love. Its an “I wish you all the best in the world and I wouldn’t want any less for you” kind of love. I miss his family so much. That love is defiantly still there. When you are with someone for nearly 5 years their family becomes yours too. Should I wish his mom a happy mothers day? Is that weird? Probably. But thats something I would do. Not to be weird but to just be like “hey thinking about you hope you have a happy mothers day”. I have no idea.
