There are a lot of catchy songs about love, actually. Because hey, love makes the world go round.
As you can see by my tattoo, the idea of love is very important to me.
Love is at the center of everything. The reason I got the tattoo was because I think you need love in every aspect of life. You need to love who you are. Be with who you love. Love what you do. If you don’t, what’s the point of it all?
So sitting here contemplating life (with a nice paralyser in hand, I might add) I was staring at my tattoo. And so, I started thinking about love. Romantic love.
How do you know you’re in love? How do you know when something is “real love” and not just a passing infatuation? Is there such a thing as “one true love”? Can you love more than one person at a time?
I think it’s a tricky thing, romantic love. I think that there are many kinds of love to be had. And there is never the same love twice. But there is so much love to be had. To be felt.
I’ve always been an emotionally driven person. Every decision I make, every step I take, I follow my heart. And let me tell you, I feel a LOT. And all at once usually. And I’ve felt my fair share of love. Romantic love. And the kind that is simply a passing infatuation. But one true love? How does one figure that out? I need to believe that we have more than one true love in life. Perhaps it’s the impending doom that is my current relationship to make me feel this need for comfort. Just the need to know I haven’t ruined my only true love in life, but like I said – how could we possibly know.
A question for anyone reading – what is your view on love?
