Something About Love

I want to be in love. Like, real love. LOVE love.

But, now that I think of it, love is a state of mind, a feeling, an emotion, fluctuating, ephemeral, temporary and there'll always be something that'll make me feel less loved. Also, it also means that there'll always be love around me only if I see it.

Poets, writers, dreamers, philosophers have romantized love way too much. Love is not just a romantic relationship with someone. It's in little things, in little habits, in everyday conversations, in friendships, in everything and anything.

The thought that I felt when I wrote I want to be in love is the feeling of the absence of it. Maybe because I'm not seeing it where it is, or seeking it where it is, or simply ignoring it with emotions that are overpowering the feelings of love.

And when any other emotion overpowers the emotion of love, I think it is extremely important to be a little extra kind to yourself. Because love begins in you and you are love.

Love is nothing / love is everything. I want to be in love / I am in love. It's what you think it is. It's as simple as that and as complicated as that.
