I don’t really mean to be mushy here but sometimes there are just some thoughts in my mind that I wanted this to share to my readers. My status right now-well, I’m deeply in love with somebody but oh, how long? I don’t even want to imagine an end to that feeling either.
Why we really fall in love is, through countless prior generations, the process of natural selection has made our brains automatically give us pleasure drugs whenever we see, hear, smell, taste, and touch members of the opposite gender. If we allow ourselves to spend more time with such people who drive us literally crazy with desire we will eventually form an addiction to that person. That’s not always a problem, for example, if they feel the same way about you, the two of you are both unattached and available, and nothing else is in the way of your happily ever after. However, such strong feels like result in codependency or worse. So, be careful! Or should I say this to myself, Be Careful!
Well, love is a truly amazing feeling. I’m not knocking it. When it’s good, it’s great! But, like the ocean, it can be tantalizingly beautiful and gentle one moment, then life-threateningly tumultuous the next. We have to know what we’re doing every time we go out there. It’s best not to just strip down, jump in, and take our chances. Test the waters as we go. Take it slow. There might be an undertow.
