Don't be Afraid to Love

Bookmark and Share

ometimes we put up all of these defences and are afraid to fall in love. I believe that all of us have something within ourselves that wants to protect our feelings. Falling in love leaves us vulnerable. It kind of takes over our whole psyche, and we feel that we might lose control. When we fall in love, sometimes we remember a certain song that comes on the radio that reminds us of the one we love. Most of the day, we can't get them out of our mind even though we keep trying to stay busy so we don't think about them, somehow, the thought of them creeps back into our mind. We wonder what they're up to and with whom? We still fight that feeling of love. Why? I believe it's because we don't want to be hurt. When we fall in love we put all of our feelings out there, and we feel connected to that person. We don't want that feeling of love to take over too much, in case on down the road there is a breakup. So, we put up this great wall of defence between them and us. Sometimes, you just have to put your defences down and know that being in love is a good thing. Yes, you might get hurt on down the road, but wouldn't it be better to have loved even if it's just for a short time? Love is a beautiful feeling. You have that happy feeling all over, those butterflies in your stomach when you look at that someone special. Love just kind of takes over, doesn't it? Love is a feeling that you can't put a price on. Love is a special beautiful connection between two human beings. It can last for a minute, a day, a week, a month, a year or a life-time. The best is when it can last for a life time.
If you should find that you fall in love and on down the road it doesn't work out, at least you've spent precious time together with your loved one. Time goes on and on, and what you do with your life is so important. To have loved is one of the greatest things that can happen to you in your lifetime. Don't be afraid to love and be loved.
Won’t you like to be able to say that when you are old and that you have loved? How many people grow old and gray and never have been able to say they have truly loved someone. So, next time, you are afraid of love try to remember what is more important to you being afraid of love and not doing something about it, or letting your defences down and letting your feelings show. Don't be afraid to love. You never know where a relationship will go unless you're not afraid of love.
