They say love should be easy. That you should fall in love without force or sometimes without even knowing it until one day it’s like sparkles fall from the sky onto you and you realize that these are the moments worth living for. These moments that don’t come often but are a part of the reason that you keep living.
They also say living and existing are two different things
To exist to me is to be current or present but to live goes deeper then that. Living includes diving into the ocean on a cold day and forcing yourself to open your eyes through the salt water. It includes having dinner with someone you love with never ending conversation about anything and speaking without thinking. It includes trying new and exciting things, booking a plane ticket to anywhere in the world, finishing off a bottle or two of wine with your best friend, jumping on your bed naked and singing along to your favorite songs as loudly as you can as you drive down an old and deserted country road. That’s living and my point today is that love and living are very closely related and we all know that life isn’t always easy.
But they still say that love should be easy
What is true love? How about this… does true love even exist? I’d say love exists but not true love. I stand by my previous statement in another blog post that we will never meet someone that is 100% for us. So in saying that, why should love be easy? Before going on I must share this quote with you:
At this moment there are 6,470,818,671 people in the world. Some are running scared. Some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day. Others are just not facing the truth. Some are evil men, at war with good. And some are good, struggling with evil. Six billion people in the world, six billion souls. And sometimes… all you need is one. – Peyton, One Tree Hill
This however is truth. Love isn’t easy. So even though love isn’t easy because we are not programed to meet a perfect match, a perfect match is created through us and one other person and that should be the person you marry or at least the person that you promise to spend the rest of your life with.
So… Love isn’t easy
It’s not easy, but it is worth it. We do not fall for someone without going through life’s ups and downs and, as said earlier, life isn’t easy… so why should love be… If we are able to love someone through their lowest point in life then that is as close to true love as I think we can get and what’s easy about going through low times in life? However that’s not the only key. The only key isn’t always seeing who is there for you at your lowest and who loves you through you lowest. Another key is in this quote:
Imagine a future moment in your life where all your dreams come true. You know, it’s the greatest moment of your life and you get to experience it with one person. Who’s standing next to you? – Peyton, One Tree Hill
So now I ask you, who is standing next to you?
