The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Sometimes I equate that with love. You meet someone, fall in love, it doesn’t work out. Eventually you circle back around to the same individual, fall back in love and express how much you’ve both changed. Eventually you change slightly back into the old person you were the first time you were together and then it all ends again.
I guess that’s life. It’s like we have a desire to hurt ourselves and others over and over knowing that things usually end the same way. History repeats itself after all. I know that sounds cynical, but overall we as humans, tend to make the same mistake several times.
That being said, I still believe in love and that you should take the chance if it comes around. At the very least, you will enjoy the ride while you are on it. Most importantly you learn a lesson or two and walk away a stronger, smarter, individual. You will experience the highs that come with being in love. You will have fun and share experiences with someone you think you will spend the rest of your life with. You will be so in love that when it’s over, you hit the ground stunned. But it’s all worth it.
Even though the fall hurts, it’s worth it…
