Love. Love. It's a confusing thing. Though everyone seems to have it figured out but me. Love. So warm, and brilliant. As large as a South American rainforest. Open yet completely secluded. From life. From hate. Does it even know what hate is? Love. It makes me wonder if it reaches out to everyone or anyone for that matter. Are we all living in hate yet being deceived into thinking we're in love. to be in love is to give another human being the power to destoy you, and wholeheartedly trusting them with that. Cause thats all you can do when in that situation. Is doing that to someone really love or is it the deepest form of hate. So deep that no one has figured it out yet. and it really doesn't matter if it's as big as the rainforest if its as cold as the tundra. Love. Love may endure all things but is that necessarily a good thing. Love? Whatever love is. I do know that it is the most important thing in the world. And true love is a wonderful beautiful thing. but our love. the love that our human mind distorted so that it could handle it. because the real love is too awesome for any mortal being to fathom in a billion years. that love is nothing compared to his love. God's love.. Love, love!...

my favorite quote is: Love is, after all, the gift of oneself.

I totally understand you.  When you love someone, you're giving them the opportunity to hurt you, but anyone who loves you is putting the same trust in you.  this was very interesting.  read my article if you would, it's called: What Love Is to Me.

I personally agree with you completely.  Love takes away your independence and you run the risk of extreme depression upon losing it, many times more powerful than when one gains it.  The point of love is just for motivation for animals to reproduce, but to be honest, it's not very effective.  But a lucky person can have his or her life altered for the better due to love, whether it is mutual or otherwise.  The results caused by one's love can do many things, but love itself,...

To love is to give the other person the power to destroy you... how profoundly interesting. You are right.

Ya. This is really deep, and i feel a connection with you, though we have never meet. You sewem to have grsoed both the pros, and cons of love, which can be hard to do. I like your rainforest metaphor, but you forgot something, love, like rainforests, can be torn down for no particular reason.

I like it. It's deep and facinating to the human mind that reads this article. It makes you think long and hard about not just love but its connection to life. I absolutely adore this article.

I think that this is a really fantastic article! I never really thought about love in that way before, and yet I found it so completely true. Love really is blissful, but by loving you give someone the power to hurt you. This article completely changed my outlook. Great work, keep writing! :D

well i just write what im thinking at that moment..and i was inspired cause ive been confused lately about what love really seems that im in love with someone but that can't be it..cause i believe that true love is always im begining to wonder if there is any true love on this earth and if the only true love is the love thats not of earth...

I know exactly what you're talking about - I once rejected this guy who told me nothing would ever come between us, and he's hated me ever since. I have never experienced true love, but have experienced something pretty close to it, although I'm never quite sure that it's returned. While true love may be a complete mystery to people such as us, I'm very sure other people can help you.
Thank you so much for replying, this article was very inspiring.

This really mad eme think. When you said the part about how love could be special or a deeper form of hate. I fell in love and ever since then my life has been a complete mess of pain. But I'm sure i don't hate him, I just don't get how he doesn't feel the same way.
