Love is intense, beautiful, intriguing, passionate, companionship, happiness. I could go on but it would be never-ending because we all know that love is infinite.
Because of all these wonderful things sometimes love makes it hard to move on. It makes it hard for us to break up so we hold on.
There is so much uncertainty in life and when it comes to our relationships, some of us are even more unaware of what may happen. So instead we detach ourselves emotionally, sexually and mentally before actually departing physically.
We are scared of the hurt and pain that we may have to endure after a loving chapter has ended. We are scared because we are uncertain what will follow. We are afraid to live in regret so we choose the known over the unknown.
The reality is break ups can be hard.
Breaking up takes a toll because when we are in love our feelings are intensified.
That is why when we crash we burn!
We all know that love does entail some form of suffering but I am sure we all know when we have suffered enough.
Should we save ourselves from the immense grief and sorrow that follows a break up by continuing to wobble in unhappiness and uncertainty?
I think we at least owe it to ourselves to walk away when things have turned into dust;
And when it is quite clear that consistent happiness is no long possible.
It is so crazy that although we know we can start over, we are terrified of what will follow when a chapter in our life is ended…
