Love changed me. the way i think, the way i act, the way i decide. Sometimes, i even go against my principles and beliefs in life. Loving doesnt mean i'll be happy always.Sometimes, all it provides me is pain and misery.Yet I was blinded by strong emotions, that i failed to see reality. Sometimes, letting go is the answer and it hurts like hell. But i soon realized that it's better to see the person i loved happy with someone else, than lonely with me...

Yes, I definitely agree with you. Love get us out of our comfort zone. It is because we try to please the one we love to the point that we do things beyond our means. It is definitely also love when we set someone free especially if we know that we cannot make that someone happy. Just accept the fact that things are not going smoothly for the two of you. Let optimism sets in for you to be able to move on and find your one true love.

Love is not negotiable, it is actually critical for your mind and body as oxygen. The more CONNECTED you are, the healthier you will be both physically and emotionally. The less connected you are, the more you are at risk. The funny thing is, is if you peel back the onion sort of speak, most of us get our ideas of love from popular culture. We come to believe that love is something that sweeps us off our feet??? But popular culture, ideal of love consists of unrealistic images created by media, etc. Which is one reason so many of us are set up to be depressed as a result of being dumped from the "one".....We think it is love when it's simply a distraction and infatuation. Just something to think about.......

your happiness is all that matters. happiness comes from within. if you are not being true to yourself you are not in alignment with your higher self, therefore you cannot be happy. you must be happy and in alignment with your higher self. you can choose to do this with your partner, or without your partner. if you find your alignment you can help your partner best. actions you take when you are in alignment ar the correct actions and are most effective. first, get into alignment, find your joy. then, you will know what to do. see only what you like in your partner. even if you should leave, this will still help you to do so.

Very well said and of course you are right. What we don't seem to ever understand is this wonderful gift from God is in reality only a mortal human being with all the faults we have and more. When we first fall in love we are blind. We see them not for what they are but for what we want them to be. There is only one true way to have a long and loving relationship. To know ahead of time that there will be problems but the close friendship and trust you have forged will see you through. If either one of those are missing time will change those feelings and it is time to move on. So very hard to do but it is so very much for the best. I speak from experience on this. Married 37 years to a women that never really loved me as I love her. We divorced when I found she was having an affair. I am married again and this time to a woman I am deeply in love with and have no doubt she is with me. For anyone of us to be truly happy we must be with someone who champions our cause, is there for us no matter what. And of course we must be the same for them. If we cannot feel this way then your love is doomed.
