Whats Love got do with it?
Love what a word and how diverse is the meaning. I hereby officially declare myself a lover. I love life, I love people, I love the world, I love my friends, my family, my extended family.
What is worse I do not understand how love can cause so much pain. The love of a person be it your spouse, your children, your neighbour where and how do we get it so wrong.
To talk about ones life partner and love and yet in so many cases it just withers on the vine and dies. The unadulterated innocent trusting love that appears in children is so perfect and yet we contaminate and infect it.
It seems however, we need it, it is the very essence of our presence on this planet.Or is that where the problem starts, we need do not simply accept it, be it. As we hit the pot holes of life why do we do it, screw it up - is it a lack of respect for our fellow man, a fear of communicating honestly, of being an equal - how do we choose our life partners and stay happy. What makes us fall out of love and create this anxiety and pain.
Being a logical man "what's love got to do with it" - maybe it is just a second hand emotion after all?
