The Price Of Love.

Hi,

.

Hoping you are happy and have found romantic love in your life.

.

But, of course there is a downside to this, as there always is.

.

We need to trust.

We are actually taking a step into the dark when we finally give ourselves up to fully loving someone else.

We  trust that what we give will be returned.

We believe in forever.

.

There is no other way to love that is without risk.

Loving can always end in pain at any time.

Loving is risk.

.

It can be that love ceases as time passes and people, and their needs, change.

No-one can be blamed for that because we are only human and all we can offer is our best intentions.

.

I am sad to read so many recent reports about the actions of some distressed people who cannot bear to give up a partner that they love.

They find the idea of their special someone  leaving them to be so unbearable that they get to feel that they would rather kill them than lose them, they are so desperate to end the pain of it.

They often feel that they ‘ cannot live with them and they cannot live without them’.

.

But the truth is, we existed before we fell in love with that one particular person.

Losing someone’s love does not take away any of the time that we spent with them, and it removes none of the things we did with them or the things that they said, and did mean, before things changed.

They still shared a part of their lives with us and that can never be taken away.

.

If someone needs to go, then we should let them go gracefully and appreciate the time that was….and deal with the hurt and the jealousy as  best we can.

Eventually time changes things and makes them more bearable and life does go on.

People cannot be owned and they must be allowed to go.

That is what loving someone is.

Let them be happy.

.

As the song says ‘Love Hurts’ but risking it is better than the alternative!
