Love is not everything that makes a relationship!

It’s strange how I feel today. I feel extremely happy and elated and depressed and sad at the same time. I feel like I have anwers to all my questions and I am ready to face the world but deep down I feel like a coward unable to speak the truth. Its not easy throwing away all you got for that one person you love so much (I can picture you rolling your eyes saying, ‘haven’t we all been there and done that?’). True it happens to a lot of people and it happens quite often, but somehow this time it feels different and extremely important to me. I don’t believe in ‘the one’ or ‘Mr. Right’, I do believe in connection and that unless you take the effort no relationship works. There is this bubble in which many live in and that they think that the initial love and intimacy lasts forever. But here’s the truth, no it doesn’t. Nothing lasts forever if you don’t take the time and effort to make it last. Its in your best interest that makes it work.

I read this post recently and it made a lot of sense to me. The very word has no effect on us, its the theory of reinforcement in Psychology that accounts to the ‘butterflies in the belly’ effect. Its either the happy chemical Serotonin or the estrogens and testosterone that causes the fuzziness.  Dont let this fool you. Love is treacherous and it can swoon you, make you believe in and finally suck out your happiness. Choose to liberate yourself and your relationships from just a single entity called “Love”. Go beyond and discovery all the intricacies that make a beautiful relationship last..
