Love is beautiful. One of the greatest experiences of man is to love and be loved back. Love can be a beautiful exchange. Love is the reason why a lot of things still stand today.
So, it’s always a beautiful sight to see two love birds joined in Holy matrimony called marriage; the sights and sounds of weddings are usually pleasant as two entangled hearts become exclusive to one another. Perhaps, the greatest show of love.
Then there’s the love that hurts. Where hearts break and souls are pained. I probably shed a tear or two listening to the story of two intertwined hearts falling apart. How did a love so hot become so cold? How did love so cherished become so despised? Such a seemingly quick switch makes us doubt the love was genuine to begin with.
On second thought though, humans, in our frail nature, have done a very good task at misrepresenting love. In a momentarily lapse in judgment, we make decisions that make Love seem like the bad guy. We have got this precious gift within us corrupted by our weakly nature. Therefore, it seems like love hurts when love is the best thing that ever happened to us.
It’s not an easy topic to discuss but there are probably millions of people suffering from the heartbreak of a failed marriage. People who have not recovered from the big hole bore in their hearts. People searching for closure, locked up in their own world. For them, the wounds never heal.
It’s easy to tell you ‘be strong’… ‘move on’. But today, I would like to indulge you. Sometimes, the best way to solve a problem is to walk through it rather than walk around it. I would like you to share your story of failed love if you ever had one. If you have moved on, tell us. How were you able to? What caused the breakup in the first place? Pour out your heart and let’s talk about these issues.
Love always wins.
