Dating is such a fickle thing. One minute you feel like you’re on cloud 9 with this new person, and the next, you come crashing down. Oftentimes, words like love, in love, future, marriage, and children are exchanged at different points during the courtship. Coupled with days of convivial exchanges and affections that leave you absolutely spaced out with no connection to reality or the planet Earth.
With this in mind, as humans, we persist regardless. This is why I say that love is the most powerful force the world has ever known. Even though, countless efforts have been made to counteract the effect of it. To demonstrate, most of us have said that we won’t allow love into our hearts and a few weeks to a few months later we’ve completely spaced out, with all previous defenses abandoned. In other words, there’s no figurative stronghold, barricade or mental armor that can protect you from the power of love.
That being said, there is a fine line between love and insanity. Well, at least that’s what it seems.
How many times have you found yourself doing things that an otherwise sensible version of yourself would not do? I say this because I’ve been that person and I know many others just like me. Credit and rental history destroyed minus a few thousand dollars. How about moving in together or uprooting yourself to be closer to your partner? Not to mention, car purchases, clothes, loans, and KIDS — all in the name of love. Needless to say, if you look back on those actions, you would say you were completely spaced out, but I would say, love has an intricate way of overpowering logic.
In any event, when it comes to the omnipotent power of love, we (as humans) have no power over it. That is honestly the most frustrating part. There have been times where I didn’t want to fall in love — slipped up, and fell anyway.
Love is like that. It’s the black ice to careful steps and cautious movement during inclimate weather.
